Rhine navigation

Experience castles, palaces, the Loreley, the Rheingau and the UNESCO World Heritage Upper Middle Rhine Valley from its most beautiful side.

The most beautiful perspective in the wildly romantic Middle Rhine Valley with its many castles, fortresses and sleepy villages is from the water. Steep vineyards, rugged rock formations, the imposing Germania on the Niederwald Monument and the enchanting Loreley - you can experience all this at close quarters on a boat tour. The piers in Rüdesheim and Assmannshausen are served several times a day.

Browse through the list below and find your relaxing boat trip on the Rhine. Because the spirit of the Loreley, the unique romanticism of the Rhine, the traces of Hildegard von Bingen, the cultural landscape of the Rheingau and the legendary UNESCO World Heritage Upper Middle Rhine Valley are all particularly close to you on the water.
