This new cruise celebrates Turner’s fascination with the Middle Rhine, which he visited ten times between 1817 and 1844. On his first sketching trip he passed medieval fortresses devastated by the wars that followed the Reformation and blackened by the sieges of Napoleon’s troops. He saw fairytale castles, picturesque villages and magnificent cities founded by the Romans and enjoyed breathtaking scenery and the excitements of the Rhine Gorge, where travellers saluted the legendary sirens with pistol shots and hunting horns. Unlike the solitary Turner, who always travelled on his own, you can relive his experiences accompanied by our expert guest speaker, Gerald Deslandes, and other like-minded passengers. And in contrast to the artist - who lost his entire luggage including all his shirts - we will be happy to escort you in comfort and convenience to and from your home.
