Why not book your river cruise vacations through Arpin Travel? We have the best variety of options for exploring the Rhine. Not yet convinced?
Let us walk you through the highlights of one of our favorite river cruises along the Rhine River, and you can be the judge!
There’s never a wrong time to visit the Rhine, but we’d like to argue the most comfortable time to visit is in Autumn when there are fewer crowds and comfortable temperatures. Let us introduce you to the Rhine Getaway, an 8-day cruise through The Netherlands, Germany, France, and Switzerland that includes six guided tours.
Land in Amsterdam, the capital of The Netherlands, where you will board your ship. Enjoy the rest of the afternoon to yourself as you get to peruse the city on your own. We recommend visiting the Van Gogh Museum!
Sail into the village of Kinderdijk in South Holland, a village containing 19 windmills. You will enter a functioning windmill, see how it works, and learn why they were built. Have lunch onboard filled with Dutch delicacies that include jenever, a distilled juniper liquor, and a variety of handmade Dutch cheeses. While you immerse yourself in Dutch cuisine, enjoy a presentation of the Dutch Golden Age. After dinner, prepare to embark on an overnight cruise to Cologne!
Enjoy a morning tour through Germany’s fourth largest city, Cologne. Visit a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Germany’s largest cathedral, the Dom. Indulge in some free time to explore Cologne further after your tour and roam the waterfront. You’ll have the choice of taking part in an excursion to the Dom, where you can travel up to the roof and further revel in the architecture of the cathedral while taking in the views of Cologne. We also recommend taking an excursion to have a Brauhaus dinner, learn about the city’s beer culture, and enjoy a locally brewed beer called Kölsch!
