Celebrate Europe’s Great Cities

As the small-ship experts, Viking delivers travelers to destinations’ doorsteps.

Be immersed in the Old World as you sail Europe’s rivers. Discover Danube gems like Vienna and Budapest. See storied Rhine castles. Trace French history along the Seine. From the Main to the Moselle, the Douro to the Dordogne, the Viking experience is like no other.

Travel to the heart of Europe’s great cities. Viking owns prime docking locations along Europe’s great rivers, enabling its fleet of thoughtfully designed river cruise vessels to dock in the heart of town, so you can walk right off and start exploring. Plus, intimate ocean vessels can sail into ports that mega-liners simply cannot reach. Here are highlights of the Rhine, Main, and Danube river cruise experiences.


Raise a glass of Riesling to the acclaimed Rhine River cruises through Switzerland, Germany, and The Netherlands. See how the Rhine, Main, and Moselle river systems unfold to create a spellbinding display of storybook villages, Dutch windmills, German vineyards, and Gothic cities.


Winding between Mainz and Bamberg, the Main passes through 34 locks—16 more connect it to the Danube via the Main-Danube Canal. While this engineering feat enables river travel across the entire length of Europe, it also unlocks a trove of unspoiled landscapes and historic towns.


Coursing through Germany, Austria, Hungary and seven other countries all the way to the Black Sea, the Danube is the soul of Central Europe. Join Viking along these culture-rich banks, including scenic vineyards, ancient monasteries, and elegant cities that have inspired travelers for centuries.
