A musical voyage along the Rhine and Moselle in honour of the 250th anniversary of Ludwig van Beethoven to his birthplace in Bonn with concerts on board and ashore and accompanied by the music expert Antonella Placheta
Germany is a great nation with a rich history and distinctive culture. Let us take you on a journey down one of its wonderful waterways, the Rhine, where you can sample some of this country’s exceedingly varied and beautiful landscape.
The Rhine is the perfect vantage point from which to take in scenic landscapes and acquire a taste for the country. For a long time, the Rhine was the border between the Roman Empire and the German Barbarian tribes to the east. This led to many settlements establishing themselves along the riverbank, so you can enjoy the ruined castles of past populations and quaint riverside towns that thrive there today.
A cruise also gives visitors the opportunity to explore multiple places at an easy pace. In Cologne, which you’ll head to on one of our Germany holidays – The Classic Rhine – you’ll find an interesting Jewish Quarter and the Romanesque Great St. Martin Church; in Rüdesheim, treat all your senses, first with wine-tasting and then a trip to the Museum of Mechanical Music; and in Düsseldorf there is much to see on a guided tourThis is the ideal Germany tour for laid-back travellers - but curious tourists will also find there is much to see and do in this pleasant part of the world.
Fancy a trip steeped in history? With its dramatic alpine terrain and indulgent cuisine, the Tirol region is one not to be missed. The climate of this beautiful area has meant that each valley and village has developed its own separate way of life, including its own accent, vocabulary and farmhouse style.
Much like the UK, Germany is a temperate country with warm summers and chilly winters. With a range of trips from February through to October , you’re sure to find a Germany tour that suits you and your fellow travellers.
Immerse yourself in the true wonders of this incredible country and book your next Germany holiday with Jules Verne. Enjoy the wonders of the Romanic Rhine visiting Amsterdam, Cologne, Basel and more, or head on our Central Kingdom Express and experience railways at their finest as you travel from London to Cathay.
Our tours to Germany can be enjoyed with a group of like-minded travellers as well as with an experienced tour guide. This allows for a much more personal experience, where you can learn everything you’d like to know about the country. Your expert guide will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about the cuisine, culture and more.
You can now explore Germany from the comfort of your home. Here are some of our favourite spots:
