Immerse yourself in the unique heritage and scenic splendour of Germany with this 8-day river cruise between Nuremberg and Frankfurt, travelling on the Rhine, Main and Moselle rivers.

The rivers of Germany flow through lands of captivating natural beauty and unique heritage, passing cities, towns and villages steeped in rich history and traditions. Your journey on the waters of the Main, Rhine and Moselle rivers begins in Nuremberg, and sees you travel across the breadth of the country via the meandering flow of the archetypal German river, the Main. Here, the unique medieval cities of Bamberg, Würzburg and Miltenberg are yours to explore and discover — each revealing a huge depth of history that showcases Germany’s most inspiring customs and traditions. From the Main, you’ll travel on to the Rhine, passing through the natural spectacle of the Rhine Gorge, whose craggy backdrop is littered with ancient Germanic castles. The impressive city of Koblenz is your next stop, and here you’ll part ways with the Rhine to travel up the Moselle, calling at Cochem and Bernkastel before your return flight back to the UK.
