The 10-day ‘Treasures of the Rhine’ voyage will explore the Middle Rhine, a UNESCO World Heritage Site
Viking is to sail a new ‘Treasures of the Rhine’ itinerary in December 2023, establishing the cruise line as the first to operate year-round on Europe’s rivers.
The 10-day voyage will explore the Middle Rhine, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The itinerary will begin in Amsterdam and call at Arnhem in the Netherlands, before visiting Cologne, Mainz, Heidelberg, Speyer in Germany. The ship will enter France to call at the city of Strabourg, before returning to Germany to visit the town of Breisach. Finally, the cruise will conclude in Basel, Switzerland.
“The Middle Rhine is one of our most popular destinations – with constantly changing views of hilltop castles, historic towns and terraced vineyards along the steep valley sides, it is a region that will always be best explored by the river,” said Torstein Hagen, chairman of Viking. “Many of our guests have sailed the Rhine during other seasons, so we are pleased to offer a new option for those who may be interested in experiencing Europe during a quieter time of year.”
