The Romantic Rhine

 

Basel to Amsterdam

Discover the heritage and beauty of the River Rhine on our 7-night Basel – Amsterdam river cruise aboard one of Tauck’s intimate riverboats. “From one enchanting aspect to another in ceaseless procession… Never an unlovely one…” – words written by Mark Twain, who settled his family in Heidelberg in 1878, of the River Rhine… where mountains rise abruptly from the water’s edge, ancient castles perch aloft, keeping watch over comings and goings, gentle valleys and ancient winelands lure, spas give respite, cathedrals speak to powerful times, plains and woods catch the eye, and a river travels – connecting centuries of history, cities of the arts and crossroads of thought. Visit the Netherlands, Germany, France and Switzerland, exploring regional delights in the historic cities, towns and countryside linked by the Rhine. Set your own pace with choices along the way: castle visits, bicycling, mountain heights, a spa resort and more.
