“The cruise was wonderful, but the one thing that I found difficult was the many changes of trains with all the luggage. The Passion Play arrangements were superb. Veronica looked after us so well.

Delights of the Danube (Rail and Cruise)
12/Sep
Richard
5 stars
“Our first cruise and it was wonderful. Great staff and fab food. Only complaint is that we would have liked more daytime cruising and fewer guided walks which were a bit much for the demographic of the group in the heat. Best day was the full day cruising from Passau to Regensburg when we opted out of the excursion. Special thanks to Alice and Sharon who sorted out serious issues with the German rail journeys - in both directions. Who knew there were locks on the Danube!!

“Could not have been better. My travelling companion had to cancel last minute due to covid and I nearly cancelled too as I was not sure about travelling alone. I am so glad I decided to go. Our Tour Guide was incredible - he helped the small group to gel and I immediately felt part of the group. Richard smoothed the way and ensured we got our trains on time. The local guides were fantastic and the accommodation faultless.

River Cruises through Germany - Traveller's Notes

Rivers have played an important part in every culture and society throughout history. Many towns and cities have been built around the river banks to utilise the resources provided by these waterways from the import and export of goods to travel, tourism and water sources. As such, taking a tour down the river today can provide convenient access to views of a variety of growing metropolises and cosy riverside towns. River cruises in Germany are particularly charming as, depending on your river of choice, they not only travel through sights such as the spectacular city of Cologne or the wine town of Rüdesheim, but also through areas of extreme natural beauty. River cruises exploring the Rhine for instance pass through the magnificent Rhine Gorge, a designated UNESCO world heritage site. Apart from its stunning views the Gorge is also home to the famous Lorelei Rock which has been the subject of many poems, songs and folklore. With cruises on the river Rhine and Danube all featuring views of Germany, whether you prefer the atmosphere of the city or the enchanting natural landscape, Great Rail Journeys provide a choice of river cruises in Germany to suit the desires of every traveller.
