Float On

The Old World is made new when you see it with Viking®.
By Avery Bredesen

River cruising grants a unique vantage and unparalleled access to Europe through its connecting waterways. Viking’s Rhine, Main, and Danube River journeys give you an intimate and immersive encounter with several charming, historic countries in one trip, all while you stay in comfort and style aboard well-appointed ships and all river-view staterooms.

Rhine Rapture

Raise your glass of Reisling—Viking’s Rhine River cruises float through Switzerland, Germany, and The Netherlands for a spellbinding sojourn along their culture-rich cities and quaint towns. Oenophiles will take pleasure in wine tastings at renowned vineyards (like Fürst Löwenstein in Germany), fairytale fanatics can explore castles right out of the storybooks, and nature lovers can immerse themselves in nature hikes and gardens abound.

European Exploration

The Main River’s 34 locks are a true engineering feat, allowing its waters to flow across the entire length of Europe—and giving Viking cruisers access to the unspoiled landscapes and historic towns certain to check off a bucket list. Take the Grand European Tour from Amsterdam to Budapest, with stops for fine wine in Austria’s Wachau Valley, a Viennese waltz class, and the windmill-lined waterways of Holland. Combine this trip with the Passage to Eastern Europe to see it all during a 23-day adventure along three rivers and eight countries, with 19 guided tours along the way.

Danube Delights

The soul of Central Europe, the Danube River runs through 10 countries, passing by banks of scenic vineyards, ancient monasteries, and cities steeped in history. Cruise to captivating destinations through three to eight countries over eight to 22 days. Sample Germany’s finest vintages, explore the iconic windmills of Holland, stand in awe of the Ottoman’s 6th-centurey Kalemegdan Fortress, and more. Live the magic of the holidays floating from Passau to Budapest with stops at charming Christmas markets along the way.
