Is just like the pictures but better. Even with the cloudy weather. Just like Alaska, pictures cannot capture the view adequately.

This review is from the perspective of a river cruise down the Rhine. The gorge area is fantastic with castles - mainly in various stages of ruin - to the left and right and colourful villages along the banks. The photo opportunities are fantastic but it does help having a zoom on the camera. For scenery, it's a difficult place... More

One of the best placed I visited during my Contiki tour was probably the Rhine Valley. Its quiet and a more rural area but its beautiful and a place I would visit again. Being able to see the beautiful castles make me feel like true beauty can exist in this world where the urbanised cities have become too polluted and... More

Take to the water for a truly breathtaking experience along the Rhine. See vineyards, castles, barges, trains, and more. Learn about the area with detailed, historical narration provided in English and German through speakers throughout the ferry. Make a day out of the trip, visiting villages at the start and end of your ferry journey. Don't spend money on private... More

Truly a UNESCO world heritage site that you should not miss in life! We chose to drive for the trip rather than taking the cruise down the river because we wanted to cover as much as we can. Grapevines everywhere, castles on each hilltops, beautiful small villages lined in each riverbank, the whole scenery is breathtaking as if only appeared... More

I love Castles. that is what brought me to the Rhineland area and I got way more than I had bargained for. I was hard to peel myself away from that area to explore the rest of Germany. The grape vines everywhere, the castles the amazing people made our trip to Germany feel like we were coming home.

I think it's important to contrast the Rhine with the nearby Mosel River Valley. The Rhine is much wider and has trains running on each side of it. The Mosel is narrower and has small (but paved) roads. Also, being wider, the Rhine transports many more shipments of goods on large barges, as well as tourist boats. The Mosel not... More
