Destinations in the Rhine River

Strasbourg


The seat of the European parliament and capital of the Alsace region, Strasbourg offers incredible landmarks encapsulated in the UNESCO world heritage site of Grande-Île, from the awe inspiring Cathedral of Our Lady, the most visited cathedral in France in 2019, to the Palais Rohan, formerly home to many Princes and Bishops, even housing Napoleon and his wife Josephine. For adventurers, the guided bike ride through this captivating city and the Parc de l’Orangerie may be the perfect choice for an excursion.

Cologne


The fourth largest city in Germany, and the largest city in the North Rhine-Westphalia region Cologne offers spectacular sights, such as the Cologne Cathedral which was the world’s tallest building from 1880-1890 and today remains the tallest cathedral in the world. A testament to its rich history, Roman artifacts from the times of Roman Settlement can be found in the Romano-Germanic Museum. Easily lost amongst the cities many historical landmarks and locally brewing bars, a local guided tour is very popular.

Heidelberg


The seat of the powerful former Electorate of the Palatinate in the Holy Roman Empire, Heidelberg remains a popular destination with tourists due to its renowned architectural displays such as the famous Heidelberg Castle, the Philosopher’s Walk and the Baroque old town. During the 19th Century the city was the centre of Germany’s Romantic Movement, captivating Germans with its beauty. For this reason a guided walking tour of the city, revealing the magical stone bridge with its twin white towers, is a must.
