Rhine cruises give you the chance to soak up unique history whilst on your trip. Once a frontier for the Roman Empire, and later as a vital trade route for Europe, the Rhine river is best known for two things: its vineyards and its iconic castles, both of which draw in many visitors throughout the year.
Adventures along the Rhine are extremely popular with travellers. There are medieval villages, Bavarian taverns and glorious vistas to experience at every turn. Other attractions along the way include the Worms Cathedral and Gutenberg-Museum. Fans of the outdoors can head out to the Palatinate Forest to explore the vast woodlands – perfect for hiking and biking or just enjoying a picnic.
A Rhine river cruise will give you the perfect opportunity to discover this wonderful region at your own leisure.

Culture vultures may also wish to visit Mannheim, which is respected for its notable historic architecture.
