German river cruises
Discover the popular and lesser-explored waterways of Germany
For a cruise with a difference, join us on a journey through the heart of Germany.
Think of German waterways and the chances are, the Rhine, Danube or Elbe rivers will come to mind. Yet tucked away are other charming waterways in the form of canals, plus rivers including the beautiful Moselle, a tributary of the Rhine, famous for the wines produced in its valley.
The impressive Midland (Mittelland) Canal, at around 200 miles, is the longest artificial waterway in Germany while the Kusten Canal links to the River Weser, which flows through marshlands and meadows as it moves south.
What better way to discover these impressive waterways than on a gentle cruise?
