The Danube is the second-longest river of Europe and flows through ten countries. A wide stream bed, changing landscapes and cultural diversity are only a few reasons why the Danube is so popular for river cruises.

Having its origin in the Black Forest, the Danube strings together beautiful Germany cities before continuing to Austria, e.g. Ingolstadt, Regensburg, Straubing and Passau. The cities of Nuremberg and Munich are just a stone’s throw away from the river. The Main-Danube Canal connects the two rivers, running from Bamberg via Nuremberg to Kelheim.

As we are specialised in land excursions for river cruises, we look forward to organise tailor-made programmes for your cruise along the Danube! We arrange city tours and trips, as well as bus transfers to and guided tours around many different sights of the area.

The Moselle is the second longest tributary of the Rhine with a length of 544 km. The river originates in France, in the Vosges at Col de Bussang. The German Moselle Valley is characterised by the strongly meandering course with many vineyards. In Koblenz the Moselle flows into the Rhine. A number of remarkable castles and ruins adorn the heights above the Moselle valley. A river cruise here will leave a lasting impression and make the trip worthwile.

Along the Moselle, you can find the oldest cities of Germany, e.g. Koblenz and Trier. Roman architecture characterises the townscapes. Have you ever been to a historic mustard mill? We know one dating back to 1810! Or what about a wine tasting in the picturesque old town of Bernkastel-Kues! We can recommend you a fine wine tavern!

As we are specialised in land excursions for river cruises, we look forward to organise tailor-made programmes for your cruise along the Moselle! We arrange city tours and trips, as well as coach transfers and guided tours around many different sights of the area.

The Rhine is probably the most popular river in Germany when it comes to river cruises. It springs up in Switzerland and flows into the North Sea in the Netherlands after it passed most of its way through Germany. The Rhine is characterised by an eclectic landscape with vineyards, palaces and castle ruins which are part of the many legends of the Rhine Romanticism. Not to forget of the famous Lorelei rock.

The section of the Middle Rhine Valley between Rüdesheim and Mainz is where the federal states Hesse and Rhineland-Palatinate meet. Many lovely towns and charming castles can be found left and right to the Rhine. Vineyards complete the picturesque landscape which impressed many painters and writers in former centuries.

As we are specialised in land excursions for river cruises, we look forward to organise tailor-made programmes for your cruise along the Rhine! We arrange city tours and trips, as well as bus transfers to and guided tours around many different sights of the area.
