Forging its way through the cultural bedrocks of Europe, a cruise along the Rhine River is a voyage through history. Beginning at its mountain source in Switzerland, it flows 800 miles through Germany and the Netherlands to the North Sea. Many historic cities and storybook towns are situated on the Rhine, the largest being Cologne, as well as Dusseldorf, Strasbourg and Basel.
Some of the Rhine’s most spectacular sights are best seen from the water: the Rhine Gorge, Lorelai Rock, the medieval town of Heidelberg and more than 40 castles. Travel along one of the most popular rivers in Europe with a rail and river cruise journey along the Rhine River.
