Rüdesheim mit A-ROSA entdecken
Rhein-Kreuzfahrten nach Koblenz
Frankfurts Skyline mit A-ROSA erleben

Highlights of the Rhine River Cruise, Moselle River Cruise

From Cologne to Koblenz, Boppard, Mainz, Frankfurt and Rüdesheim to Cologne.

With the best view of the Rhine, it is no wonder that the Lorelei is perched high up on a rock. Especially the Middle Rhine, with its castles, gorges, wine villages and more, is a feast for the eyes. The 'Rhine in Flames' event is a spectacular way to end your cruise. You can look forward to stunning fireworks over the Rhine, which make for an unforgettable experience.

Flusskreuzfahrt nach Koblenz

Koblenz

Discover Koblenz during your Rhine cruise. Its history dates back over 2,000 years, making it one of Germany’s oldest cities – and one of its most picturesque, with a wealth of sights and cultural attractions. Marvel at Koblenz’s palaces, stately homes, grand townhouses, narrow lanes and romantic corners. And watch as our A-ROSA ship sails close to the famous Deutsches Eck headland.

Rüdesheim

Rüdesheim

In the Upper Middle Rhine Valley – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – the town of Rüdesheim marks the end of several old merchants’ routes. This strategically important point used to be protected by four castles. Picturesque Rüdesheim is known all around the world for its outstanding wines. Make sure you take a walk through the charming little streets of the old town. 

Frankfurt

Frankfurt

‘Hier bin ich Mensch, hier darf ich’s sein’ (‘Here I am man, dare man to be’). This quote by Frankfurt’s most famous son – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe – actually comes from his play Faust (and the English translation by Bayard Taylor), but it is also a very fitting way to describe Goethe’s hometown. Frankfurt’s combination of modern skyscrapers housing major finance companies and the old town with its historic buildings and half-timbered houses is unique. And if you fancy a break from the hustle and bustle, you can take a leisurely walk along the lovely bank of the Main.

But you shouldn’t miss out on the opportunity to explore this cathedral city, with its wealth of monuments and attractions. The best way is to arrive the day before your cruise departs, so that you can relax – or simply extend your stay in Cologne after the cruise has ended.

Vulkaneifel and Benedictine Abbey Maria Laach

The imperial town of Boppard is located close to the narrow horseshoe bend of the Rhine. In the 4th century the Romans replaced their citadel by a stone fortress with 28 towers, which however was soon overrun by Germanic tribes. The former free imperial city was subjugated in 1327 by the elector Balduin von Trier. Balduin immediately had the electoral Trier castle built, thereby forcing the uncooperative inhabitants to accept his rule.

Boppard

The town describes its biggest attraction, the world-famous Drosselgasse, as ‘144 metres of joie de vivre’.

Rüdesheim is the best-known spot in the Rheingau and has plenty of cultural attractions, including stately homes and fortifications. And no visit to the towns and countryside of this area of the Rhine would be complete without a Rüdesheim coffee, which was invented here.
