Navigation on the Rhine | Riviera Travel
With 766 leagues from the Swiss Alps to Rotterdam, the mighty Rhine is one of the largest navigable in Europe. Your cruise on the Rhine is infinitely captivating. In an instant you glide past thick woods or lofty slopes that rise to over 1,000 ft, topped by the perilous remains of palaces that once took toll fees from seafarers by.
At the next minute you pass precipitous vines, in which world-famous Riesling or Gewürztraminer wine is made. There are also the beautiful river promenades of river cities, charming quays of stones, magnificent sluices, and Oxbow ponds - long abandoned by the river - which make marvellous harbours for the avifauna. However, there is nothing better than the excitement of sliding onto the river harbour boardwalk and catching tempting glances at what is onshore.
We' ll then return to your boat - for the next leg of your charming trip along the Rhine.
