Rhine Valley is quite a scenic sight, with beautiful old and small towns dotting the valley. I started my journey in the early morning (took the train) and completed by evening. Lots of walking to be expected (esp. when going up some of the old forts).

The gorge is just beautiful. You will pass the Riesling vineyards, the Heidelberg castle, the rock of Lorely, the castle and tombs of the 7 virgins. I went during winter and there was no snow so I could see everything. I think with the follage in bloom you would loose alot of the sight line while sailing

If you are debating whether or not to take a cruise on the Rhine River, don’t hesitate to book one. We went in July on Vantage’s River Splendor and could not be happier. The castles and littles villages along the river were spectacular. The weather was super and we were able to sit on the upper deck and take photographs... More

Returned from a short cruise on board the prinses christina on the 16th dec having previously sailed on more modern river boats ( serenade I & 2 ) I found this boat more than adequate, although cabins were small there was everything you needed except tea and coffee making facilities but no big deal always available in the lounge/bar which...

the rhine valley ws stunning in late october. Autumn colours were prevalent and as the back drop it made the castles and small towns enroute stand out just that little bit more. Thos is the time to travel the Rhine. Weather was perfect, not a drop of rain over 15 days and at 18 to 20 deg c not too... More

Part of our Vantage River Cruise was spending a good portion of a day sailing on the Rhine River. From our vantage point we definitely had extraordinary views of many great looking castles sitting high above the river. The other wonderful views were right in front of us as we sailed by so many charming Bavarian towns with picture perfect... More

No matter what your budget there is a Rhine River Cruise to suit you and you should make it a must do when visiting Europe. The spectacular scenery can only be experienced from the river. I can highly recommend the autumn / fall as the best time to visit. Dry season, beautiful autumn colours, no crowds and everything is still... More

We visited the Rhine River from Remagen to Koblenz and then continued on past the Deutsches Eck to the Moselle at Trier. At every stop along the highway there was another small town like Remagen with its history and its cathedral or historic church with original mom and pop bookstores full of local lore at every turn. The remains of... More

If you have a car you must go from Koblenz down the Rhine and just soak up all the atmosphere of the castles. I have done it on the Rhine and touring by car is quite different. We didn't have time to stop but it was still magical.
