River cruises in Germany

The Rhine and its tributries, the Elbe, Main and Oder

Situated in the heart of Europe and seen as a timeless destination, discover Germany on one of our cruises on the romantic Rhine, the Moselle, the Elbe and many other German waterways, including the Danube and Main rivers. Germany has more than 40 UNESCO World Heritage sites and is one of the great nations that have influenced modern Western and European civilisations. A trip to Germany promises to be a rich experience.


The country has some of the most stunning countryside and beautiful cities in the world just waiting to be discovered, combining modern life with a deep heritage, in a whirlwind of culture. Regensburg, Passau, Heildeberg, Cochem, Mainz, Coblenz, Mannheim, are towns and cities you can explore through our numerous German river cruise itineraries on small river cruise ships.


Berlin with its many sites, is a world capital of art and culture. It is a destination that brings together artists, creators, enthusiasts and lovers of life. Berlin is a city in motion, full of art, cinema, music, theatre and dance.


Hamburg, meanwhile, displays a heritage from several centuries. You can admire the Alster, a large lake in the heart of the city, the magnificent city hall, an imposing neo-Renaissance building built in 1897, and the Chilehaus, a 10-storey brick building whose eastern facade evokes the bow of a ship.


The German waterways that crisscross the country are all full of discoveries and surprises. Cruising the Rhine, where picturesque villages surrounded by vineyards and overhung by ancient castles, will eventually seduce you. A cruise on the Elbe, meanwhile, will take you to the most beautiful corners of Europe.
