Along the way, you'll serpentine along the river's winding course passing medieval villages, grand canal systems, historic castles, and quaint villages. You'll also find out how the countries along the Rhine are working together to protect the river's waters for future generations. Come on aboard! Our vessel is waiting to sail.
