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.
