Putting my Rhine river cruise on the map

Taking a European river cruise is a great way of seeing the landscapes and towns of several different countries in one holiday and without any stress of organising transport yourself. For my Rhine River cruise with Lüftner Cruises I posted a day by day diary of everything that we enjoyed at The Online Travel Journal – do take a look at my series of 6 articles on Cruising the Rhine.

If you can’t see the map below, view it on my blog here

The Online Travel Journal also make maps for travel companies and they kindly created the one above to show all the places I visited on the cruise, so that you can get a feel for the distances and locations we covered.

Cruising the Middle Rhine

If you click on each of the featured locations, you can see photos from the cruise and a link to the article for that location. Our cruise covered everything from the city of Strasbourg, the music museum at Rudesheim, wine tasting in Alsace to admiring the romantic castles and landscape of the Middle Rhine.

If you’re considering a Rhine River Cruise, the map should give you a good feel for the places you might visit and things to enjoy.

    I’ve been wanting to take a river cruise ever since two summers ago when I saw several of them floating down the Danube River in Budapest. I think all of these posts have finally convinced me. Thanks! Looks like you had a fabulous time. I love all of the pictures.

    My husband and I took a winter cruise down the Rhine.
    It was the first time for both of us. We will be back.
    The ship and staff were excellent. I don’t know how they can improve on perfection.
