Medieval castles perch on mountains which stand veiled in lush vineyards whilst in the distance another historic port of call begins to emerge, on a cruise along one of Europe's mightiest rivers.
From the peaks of Switzerland a trickle turns into a stream, eventually becoming the majestic Rhine, which then flows through the remarkable scenery of Germany, France and finally the Netherlands. Rhine river cruises navigate along this popular waterway, calling at fortified hill top towns and multi-cultural cities which are abundant in attractions.
This cross-continental route means that on just one journey it is possible to sample the famous chocolates and cheeses of Switzerland, explore the vineyards of France and see the famous windmills of Holland.
