The beautiful Neckar Valley must be one of Germany’s best kept secrets, familiar to few tourists, unlike the popular Rhine and Moselle routes. With many medieval towns and villages along the way, this is a truly romantic waterway waiting to be discovered.
The Neckar river starts in the Black Forest before winding its way across to the Rhine, and it has been tamed over the years with several dams and locks. Heidelberg is known as the ‘Pearl of the Neckar’, and we will moor at this beautiful city, overlooked by the castle ruins high above.
Our Neckar cruises also sail on the Rhine, Main and Moselle - allowing you to see experience four of Germany's picturesque rivers in one holiday. Each river cruise holiday includes full board accommodation on board the MV Esmeralda, as well as transport to the ship by coach, air or Eurostar. We also have expert guides on hand to take you on exciting shore excursions.
