The Rhine River

The Legendary Rhine-Romantic Route

The Rhine River is the second longest river in Western Europe and a stunning waterway to cruise down to witness some of Europe’s most historic sites and landmarks. No other river has so many world-renowned cities situated on its banks.  It is considered by many to be the most important waterway in Germany, a country our Rhine river tours will give you the opportunity to explore in depth. Scenic offers four unique Rhine river tours, with stops down the picturesque Moselle River in Luxembourg along the way. 

The Rhine’s rich cultural history stems back to the Roman Empire, when it was the main source of transport and business for its residents. Because of the Rhine’s coveted connections to many other rivers in Western Europe, the river became of utmost importance for political control and cultural standing. Over the years, considerable action has been made to protect the Rhine from pollution, and it is now revered as one of the most culturally important rivers in Europe.

A river cruise down the Rhine starts in Basel, Switzerland, with a swift entry into southwest Germany, where Scenic guests will have their first chance to dock and explore the famous Black Forest in Breisach, or visit the quaint French town of Colm. The cruise continues through Mannheim (where your first Renaissance Castle awaits you!) and Rhine Gorge (the Upper Middle Rhine Valley). The Rhine sweeps you along into a different era with the arrival of the historic city of Cochem and the medieval Reichsburg Castle that sits alongside its river banks. As you pass Cochem and enter the Moselle Valley, Scenic guests will be able to enjoy a full day of river cruising along the breathtaking Moselle River, which takes a dip into Luxembourg. Scenic guests have the opportunity to explore the many delights of one of the smallest yet stunning countries of Europe.

Along the way to Amsterdam, guests will have the chance to visit the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress in Koblenz, the modern wonder that is Delta Works in Veere, and one of the biggest port cities in the world, Antwerp, in beautiful Belgium.
