Or you could take in some of Europe’s most beautiful rivers on board Brabant and experience traditional river cruising at its finest.

Alternatively, savour a selection of highlights, from unspoilt river valleys laden with terraced vineyards, dense forests and fairytale-esque castles to attraction-packed destinations such as Cologne, Amsterdam and Würzburg, as your river boat negotiates the winding Rhine, Main and Moselle rivers.
