Avalon Rhine

Avalon Waterways River Cruises on the Rhine

The River Rhine twists and turns as it winds its way through no less than six countries along its path from the Swiss Alps and on to Rotterdam. The banks of the river feature some of the most stunning scenery of Europe, with steep valleys, lush green hillsides and terraced vineyards aplenty. The Middle Rhine is particularly intriguing; a 65-mile stretch of UNESCO-listed medieval castles and traditional towns.

Highlights of a Rhine river cruise include Basel with its Gothic cathedral, the winding cobbled streets of Strasbourg and Cologne’s magnificent cathedral, which took 600 years to build.

The towns and cities along the Rhine are all excellent places to visit at any time of year. But it’s in December when they really come alive as Christmas markets pop up in every major square. From the twinkling fairy lights of the Heidelberg Christmas markets to the handmade good you’ll find in Breisach’s wooden huts, a trip to the European Christmas markets is sure to put you in the festive spirit.

There’s no better way to experience the Rhine than on a river cruise with Avalon Waterways. These river cruises are truly luxurious, and you can relax knowing that you’re in safe hands with a company which has over 80-years experience in river cruising. Offering excellent value for money, you’ll find so much included in the price, from VIP home pick-ups from your door to gourmet dished served with complimentary beer or wine. You’ll enjoy sightseeing tours of every port of call, ensuring that you see all the best bits of the towns and cities you visit.
