Discover the scenic attractions of the Main and Rhine

Join Spirit of the Rhine for an all-inclusive river cruise in 2024 from the lush green scenery of Bavaria to the rolling vineyard-clad hills of the Alsace.

Start by visiting the medieval city of Nuremberg and Bamberg, where the baroque town houses and imposing architectural styles have earned the city a place on UNESCO’s World Heritage list.

Continue along the Main River to Würzburg and Aschaffenburg, whose riverbank is dominated by the Renaissance Johannisburg Palace. Mannheim provides a gateway to the city of Heidelberg, which can be explored on an included tour and visit to its romantic castle ruins.

Join the Rhine to stop at Kehl, for an included excursion to the medieval capital of the Alsace, Strasbourg, and a visit to Breisach, an important medieval town of the Holy Roman Empire during the 16th century.

Joining you on board...

Television horticulturalist and journalist, Anne Swithinbank (June 12, 2024 departure)

Anne Swithinbank

Horticulturalist Anne Swithinbank’s fascination with plants and nature began at a young age and led her to study for her Kew Diploma in Horticulture. For the last 30 years she has been a regular panellist on Radio 4’s Gardeners’ Question Time, and she continues to write for Amateur Gardening magazine.

Anne will give two on-board talks during June 12, 2024 departures, one talk will focus on how the baroque style has influenced gardens and the second will focus on her own garden Devon and how gardening has changed in the last quarter of a century.
