The German river cruises from The River Cruise Line provide a fascinating experience for anyone looking to soak in the rich culture and beauty of Germany from the comfort and convenience of a river cruise ship. Germany is located in western Europe and its capital is Berlin.

Germany is made up of the North German Plain, the Central German Uplands, and the Southern German Highlands. Germany’s major rivers are the Danube, the Elbe, the Oder, the Weser and the Rhine.

Each of these rivers has played a vital role in Germany’s story. For example, the Rhine is an international river which has been developed for use by large ships; while the course of the Elbe has remained almost untouched. The River Cruise Line experience brings you through some of the most important and beautiful parts of this vast country.
