The Rhine River, whose name comes from the Celtic word renos, meaning raging flow, is one of the most important waterways in Germany as it begins in the Swiss Alps and flows north and east through Germany into Holland’s North Sea. It is most famous for its legendary Lorelei rock and the imposing medieval castles that line its banks. Many German manufacturing and industrial cities are located along the Rhine, as the river is important for shipping and transportation.

The Rhine River cruises are perhaps the most popular of all European river cruises, as they allow you to travel through amazing cities like Amsterdam, Cologne, Heidelberg, Strasbourg, & Basel.
