German Waterways

See the beautiful sights of Germany and Switzerland...

With a choice of five beautiful rivers to cruise along - the Rhine, the Moselle, the Main, the Neckar and the Elbe  - a river cruise holiday to Germany and Switzerland will certainly give you a lot to see.

It's the spectacular scenery that really makes Germany and neighbouring Switzerland stand out when choosing a river cruise destination. You'll find colourful forests dotted with fairytale castles, historic towns and traditional villages. Relax on board your welcoming ship as you watch the world go by and enjoy the diverse culture on your guided shore excursions.

With Shearings, river cruises through Germany and Switzerland offer unbeatable value for money. Travel by coach, air or Eurostar to join your ship. Once on board, all your meals and entertainment are included, and you'll have a Shearings representative on hand to ensure that you have a truly enjoyable holiday.

We also offer a range of river cruises in other countries. See the full range here.
