SKU: 4137810477



The Rhine is one of Europe’s longest and most important rivers, trickling from high in the Swiss Alps through four countries to the sea. This wonderful cruise follows this river from the lowlands of Amsterdam, through Germany and along its border with France, to Basel, before we stay two nights in the resort town of Interlaken to travel up into the peaks of the Bernese Alps, nearly 3,000m above. And along the way there are multiple excursions that show off the very best of some grand cities – Amsterdam, Cologne, Mannheim, Freiburg and Strasbourg – pretty towns steeped in history – Rüdesheim, Breisach and Riquewihr – and stunning scenery – Heidelberg’s Philosopher's Walk, the Schilthorn and the Rhine Gorge, lined with ruins of medieval castles and fortresses.
