If you’re looking to explore Europe river, than look no further. These 20 photos to inspire you to take a European river cruise will show you just how beautiful it is to sail the Danube or Rhine River. I’ve taken three river cruises with Viking River and every time I come home, I am smitten with the memories made. I love the feeling of waking up on the water, being close to different cities, and seeing somewhere new each day.
River cruising may not be for everyone, but it certainly has its perks. My favorite part of river cruising is only having to unpack once. It’s such a breeze to get from one place to the next and not having to change rooms! With a river cruise, you have access to a part of Europe that most people will never see. The calm waters and boutique boats make for an intimate experience and an opportunity unlike any other. Each day on board there are usually a few options to choose from for excursions or you can head into town and explore on your own — it’s totally up to you! With meals included, you also don’t have to worry about arranging restaurants for your trip.
Each itinerary is different and offer diverse options for what you may be interested. Some focus on the major cities, and others like the Romantic Danube by Viking River showcases more of the smaller towns along the river. Whether you’re interested in the Rhine River or Danube, or perhaps going into Eastern Europe, be sure to consider it for your next trip!
