A journey of discovery along the mighty river Rhine awaits you on this autumn Rhine Inclusive cruise. Time to sit back, relax and soak up the natural beauty of the Rhine Valley with visits to some of the most scenic towns and villages along this stretch of the river. For your enjoyment we have packed in more than the usual sites and are pleased to offer a great value cruise on the MV Virginia.

The enchanting winemaking town of Rudesheim am Rhein enjoys a superb location, set on the riverside at the foot of the Niederwald. Rüdesheim forms part of the designated UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Rhine Gorge, which makes the region one of Germany’s most visited attractions.

Take time to sample some of the famous local wines and enjoy a stroll through the picturesque old town, which dates back to the Middle Ages, and includes parts of the city’s fortifications.

The historic street, Drosselgasse, is where you will find cosy traditional wine taverns. Don’t miss the Rüdesheim coffee, a treat not to be missed.
