The Rhine River brings fairytales to life - cruise into your own storybook adventure with AmaWaterways

For some, travel memories are conjured by photographs taken during their journeys. For others, it’s the stories woven throughout the places they visit that give their adventures everlasting life – and the Rhine River offers dozens of tales begging to be shared. Cruise into your own fairytale adventure as you explore the delightful Rhine region in the Netherlands, France and Germany, lined with glistening vineyards and iconic castles.

Whether aboard a complimentary bicycle or walking storied paths, you’ll forge a deeper connection to historic places and the land itself, touching the same soil as philosophers, counts, kings and queens. Cycle along the swan pond in Strasbourg’s romantic Parc de l’Orangerie, reveling in the sunlight as it flickers through the shady arches of the pergola. Cruise through the captivating UNESCO-designated Rhine Gorge, the most stunningly beautiful stretch of the river. Pedal past Rüdesheim’s rolling hills along the lush banks of the Rhine to Schloss Johannisberg, a centuries-old castle and winery known for its distinctive Rieslings – and stop in for a taste. While in Heidelberg, enjoy a tranquil hike along the legendary Philosophenweg (Philosopher’s Walk) on the banks of the Neckar River, once inspiration to famed artists and poets. From Amsterdam’s colorful canals to the majestic Swiss Alps, journey into the heart of the destinations you visit.
