Explore the many sights and wonders along the Danube, Rhine, Main and Mosel rivers
Captured in literature, art and Strauss’s famous “Blue Danube” waltz, this river is one of the world’s most romantic waterways. Extending for thousands of miles through Central Europe, the Danube flows eastward, passing four capital cities before emptying into the Black Sea. Framed by rolling hillside, lush vineyards and medieval castles, the Danube River has captivated musicians, artists, and poets throughout the centuries.
The Rhine, Main and Mosel
The Rhine rises in the Swiss Alps and slows into Germany, where it joins the Mosel and its major tributary, the Main. Along these rivers are captivating sights that include castles, stunning vineyards and verdant valleys.
Dutch and Belgian Waterways
A series of connecting rivers, including the Amstel, from which Amsterdam took its name, connect the Netherlands and Belgium.
