You’ll immediately understand the strategical importance of this fortress throughout history for the horizon stretches as far as the eye can see. We’ll spend the afternoon cruising the romantic Rhine River. Our ship will pass by numerous castles, the legendary rock of the Lorelei, picturesque villages, and the seemingly never-ending vineyards.
