River Cruise

Chances to marvel at two of Europe’s most spectacular cathedrals make for a memorable beginning and end to your romantic journey, while in between there are a plethora of incredible sights and experiences to uncover. Enjoy time ashore discovering the historical and architectural delights of charming towns and cities; and relax on board Brabant as she sails the breathtaking Middle Rhine Valley and only the most scenic areas of the magnificent Moselle Valley.

The exquisite Cathédrale Notre-Dame is a sight to behold in your first stop, Strasbourg. This is just one of many delights on show though; don’t miss the photogenic Kammerzell House and the half-timbered houses and pretty canals of the Petite France quarter too. Across the French-German border, the handsome German city of Speyer and its UNESCO-listed Romanesque Cathedral awaits you next, before a stop at Mannheim offers you the chance to tour to Heidelberg. This beautiful university town has inspired poets, artists and writers for centuries.

A pause at Oberwesel, which is renowned for its remarkably well preserved medieval town wall, is then followed by a cruise through the enchanting Middle Rhine Valley. Look out for hillside fortresses, forests and vineyards, as well as a collection of spire-laden historic towns and villages dotted along the banks of the Rhine; then head ashore in Koblenz to perhaps visit the ancient Ehrenbreitstein Fortress, the Prussian Electoral Palace and the 13th century Alte Berg.

Brabant will then divert down the Moselle to Bernkastel-Kues – a route only navigable by smaller river boats. Bernkastel-Kues’ medley of half-timbered houses, welcoming wine taverns and stunning lush-green scenery beckons you ashore, before a very special daylight cruising experience follows. Spending the afternoon sailing by the fine vineyards and pretty towns of the Middle Moselle Valley will be simply unforgettable. The next day begins in Cochem, where the romantic squares and imposing Reichsburg Castle are among the highlights, and then another memorable afternoon will be spent taking in sensational river scenery. Your journey through the alluring Lower Moselle Valley will present views of yet more vineyards, castles and towns. As your cruise nears its conclusion, a call into Cologne will afford time to marvel at the remarkable exterior and interior of the city’s iconic twin-spired cathedral and explore the charming Old Town. There’s also an opportunity to uncover the artistic treasures of Düsseldorf before you head home
