Castles along the Rhine (2017) : S.S. Antoinette

8 Days From Amsterdam To Basel

OVERVIEW

Savor the fairytale ambiance and dramatic beauty of the castle-lined Rhine River.

This scenic cruise along the Rhine-with Germany on one side and France on the other-is one of our most popular itineraries. Explore Alsace, a region whose dual French and German heritage has given it fabulous food and a winemaking tradition dating back to Roman times. Marvel at castles that were once mighty fortresses guarding territory and trade routes, now romantic ruins looming high over the water. Visit historic cities, including ancient Cologne and picturesque Strasbourg, stroll through storybook hamlets such as Riquewihr, Kaysersberg and Rudesheim, and taste delightful whites wines in the villages where the very grapes were grown. Beethoven and Byron were completely enchanted by the region's natural splendour-see how much it inspires you as you experience it from the perspective of a luxurious Rhine River cruise.

Share the enchantment of this region with the special young people in your life. Our all-inclusive cruises not only feature unique, fun-filled adventures for families to enjoy together, they're also packed with culturally and historically significant experiences designed to spark creativity and life-long learning.
