Connecting the dots, unbiased source of information for river cruises.

A river cruise is the unique chance to discover a lot of Europe's interesting cultural sites and scenic landscapes without packing and unpacking all the time. After arrival, you just have to check in once and your hotelship is going to bring you from one beautiful town to the next one. Every day a new city waits to be discovered by you. In the afternoon and evening you can enjoy the amenities of your hotel while it passes beautiful river passages, old castles and modern locks.

If that sounds like a wonderful way to explore Europe, then feel free to start your research. Just browse the Website by countries, rivers or cities until you get an idea what you want to see during your trip. Or, if you already know about geography and history, learn more about the cruise lines, their ships and itineraries.
