The Rhine
  • The Rhine is one of the largest rivers in Western
    Europe and is bordered by Germany, Switzerland,
    Austria, France, and the Netherlands. The area is
    an ideal tourist location since there are many
    great cities, medieval castles, vineyards, and
    historical places located on its banks to visit.
    The following explores places to visit while
    cruising along the Rhine.

    its location on the banks of the Rhine. While in
    Cologne, youll find many places to explore.
    Cologne Cathedral is the number one must-see. If
    you enjoy museums, you can stop to visit the
    Ludwig Museum, the Wallraf-Richartz-Museum, and
    the Kolumba Museum. There are also the Romanic
    churches, guided tours, and boat trips to take
    in. After sightseeing, you can eat at one of many
    delectable restaurants.

  • Koblenz is known as Germanys most beautiful
    corner and is located at the intersection of the
    Rhine and Moselle rivers. In Koblenz, visit the
    Basilica of St. Castor or one of the citys many
    museums, including the Rhine Museum. The city is
    very open to tourism, and as you stroll through
    shops and promenades, youll feel very welcome.

  • Rüdesheim is one of the best locations along the
    river. Since its a winemaking town, you can
    enjoy visiting one of many vineyards or winery
    taverns for wine tastings, or walk the
    Doppelgasse, which is a popular avenue lined with
    wine bars. If you are an outdoors enthusiast, you
    can enjoy biking or swimming in one of the
    outdoor heated baths. After a long day of

    Mannheim is a great place to stop during a cruise
    and is very easy to navigate. There are many
    popular attractions, including the largest German
    baroque palace and a water tower famous for its
    structural beauty. You can also visit the
    Electoral Palace, the Palace Chapel, the Jesuit
    Church, and a number of museums and theaters.
    After a long day of touring the city, you can
    stop at a delicious restaurant or a lively club.

  • Braubach offers Marksburg Castle, which has stood
    the test of time against war and weather. It
    dates back to the twelfth century and has been
    owned by six noble families. This distinguished
    castle sits high on a cliff and is difficult to
    get to, but it is more than worth the trip. While
    in Braubach, the wine lover in you may want to
    visit some of the vineyard guesthouses or the
    wine taverns.

    rivers Rhine and Main separate. If you enjoy the
