River Cruising

Call 01242 547 760 to speak to a specialist Enquire

 A river cruise is one of the most scenic ways to view Germany. Enjoy an unforgettable voyage of discovery along the Rhine, cruising past mountains, vineyards and enigmatic castles, to Germany's vertiginous Alps crowned by 2962m Mt. Zugspitzen. Our elegant vessels offer all the luxury of a five star hotel, meaning you can take in beautiful riverside scenery and Germany's top sights in the utmost comfort, passing quaint towns, thriving cities and rural countryside.

Best time to be there

Germany is a year-round destination. While Munich might be considerably further south than Berlin, the two cities have broadly comparable summers due to altitude of Munich. May through to September are the most popular months and best for getting outdoors. Spring and Autumn hold real attraction as they are quieter and the weather is still pleasant. Winter is Christmas market time in the main cities.

Guest Testimonial

Please be informed that I have been provided with assistance from the same consultant over the past 3 or 4 years (Ben Harrison). His service is fantastic and that is one of the reasons why I have been using A & K services for the past 25 years.
