The Rhine River starts high in Switzerland's Alps and serves as a major waterway through central Europe, crossing through Germany, Belgium, and France before spilling into the North Sea in the Netherlands. Each of these countries is home to a wealth of cultural diversity, customs, and traditions that will come alive as you witness the charming and well-preserved villages and towns, the impressive German castles of medieval times, and fantastic Baroque and Neo-classical architecture, like the towering cathedrals and royal palaces. Along the way, try the cuisine and the notorious local beers and wines. There are also many historical sites that you will see, especially the Roman ruins and the WWII-era camps and buildings. There are a lot of options, so we're here to help you choose the best Rhine River cruise for you.
