The Romantic Rhine Valley Special Offer

Our journey begins in cosmopolitan Strasbourg, located on the border between France and Germany, and famous for its magnificent cathedral and colourful half-timbered buildings. We cruise the Romantic Rhine river to Koblenz, meandering alongside steep cliffs and small islands, enclosed by hillside vineyards.

Experience the spectacular scenery of this region with its many castles and ruins, wine-growing villages and small medieval towns. We visit the historic town of Koblenz, Rudesheim with its lively Drosselgrasse of restaurants and taverns, and pass the famous Lorelei Rock. Sailing back up the Rhine to Speyer, you have the chance to visit Heidelberg and its famous castle.
