Switzerland River Cruises

When you book an idyllic cruise along the majestic Rhine River you will be rewarded with endless views of stunning scenery overlooked by elaborate cathedral spires. On cruises in Switzerland you will voyage along the River Rhine, which is one of the most significant and longest rivers in Europe and stretches from the Swiss Alps to the North Sea in the Netherlands.

As you cruise along the Rhine in Switzerland you will witness how unbelievably beautiful the surrounding landscape is. From Basel's impressive 16th century City Hall which is adorned with splendid murals to many of its UNESCO World Heritage Sites such as the bustling Old Town and Basel Münster, there is a wealth of attractions to admire.

On cruises in Switzerland your well-appointed ship also steers you through Amsterdam, France and Germany, with your journey concluding in Belgium. Glide gracefully along Amsterdam's meandering and brightly coloured waterways that run through thriving farmland to Cologne in Germany. Marvel at the exquisite Gothic architecture of the city's imposing cathedral or admire the pretty pastel painted buildings of the Old Town as your cruise in Switzerland continues.

The Romantic Rhine

The Majestic Rhine

“The rail journeys to and from the river cruise were very good, 1st class and comfortable. I felt the time spent in Strasbourg docks (Monday afternoon and Tuesday) looking at shipping containers was not the best start to the cruise, but by Wednesday the scenery changed and we enjoyed the ‘majestic’ Rhine. Unfortunately our cabin had a plumbing problem, with water leaking under the carpet and although we were offered an alternative cabin, the alternative was not the same standard we had paid for so we decided to stay in our cabin and endure towels on the floor every day to absorb the dampness on the carpet. That aside, we enjoyed the river cruise and excursions. The food was very good and the staff onboard were excellent.
