Germany’s Rhine & Mosel Cruise
Combine the highlights of Germany’s most famous rivers the Rhine and Mosel, on one fabulous cruise. The magnificent River Rhine is Europe’s longest waterway which traverses or borders no fewer than six countries, but it is the section between Koblenz and Mainz which seems to capture everyone’s dream of Germany’s most beautiful scenery. In contrast you have the Mosel River known as the little sister to the mighty River Rhine. This meandering river is one of the most picturesque and unspoiled river valleys in Europe. On this cruise we will be cruising both rivers stopping at towns and villages along the way to explore the area in more depth.
