Day 5 Strasbourg
Having changed hands a few times over the years, Strasbourg has both French and German influences, giving it a multi-cultural flavour and a making it an interesting stop on our Rhine river cruise. Here, the great Gothic cathedral sits obediently next to the quaint Petite France district. We’ll see all the best bits on our city tour and canal cruise this afternoon.

Day 6 Breisach
Nestled among the vineyards between the Rhine and the Black Forest - with French neighbours just across the river in Alsace, it’s little wonder Breisach is a town of such good food and good wine. Explore at leisure, or join us on an optional excursion to Lake Titisee, where you’ll enjoy a cruise and some free time soaking up the peaceful ambience.
Day 7 Basel (Mount Rigi)
The final stop on our Rhine river cruise, Basel. The ‘city for art lovers’, Basel is known for its wealth of galleries, museums and iconic buildings. Our river cruise ship docks here for the rest of the day and we’ll hop aboard a cogwheel train, for an exciting journey to the top of Rigi Kulm, Mount Rigi’s highest peak.
From the top, we’ll enjoy sweeping views of the glistening lakes and mountains below. Once you’ve had your fill of the sights, we’ll take the cogwheel down to Vitznau where we’ll glide across Lake Lucerne on a relaxing steamboat. Lucerne itself is stunning and we’ll have some time here to explore before returning to our river ship.
