With over 2,000 years of history, a cruise to Germany from the UK will fill the soul as it reveals dramatic scenery and lively culture that gives way to metropolises and palaces. Experience a journey filled with landscapes of forests, rivers, Bavarian mountain ranges and North Sea beaches when you cruise around Europe to Germany and beyond.

Cruise Germany and explore the cultural spectrum of Hamburg: imposing art museums, UNESCO-listed Speicherstadt, Gothic-style red-brick buildings, and stunning concert halls that all sit comfortably next to risqué cabaret and enigmatic underground clubs. There's plenty to discover in and around the country, including views of Jasmund National Park when you cruise to Germany's northern coast.[ReadMoreDesk][ReadMoreMob]

German Cruise Highlights

The country's personality lives in its big cities, from Hamburg, also known as the "Venice of the North", which charms visitors with its enchanting canals, to Bremen, a city combining Hanseatic grandeur with cutting-edge technology. Heading north, cruise the Kiel canal to explore the picturesque Kiel Fjord and learn about the city's maritime history. Or why not visit the charming Old Town and sample the local beer?

Set sail to Hamburg cruise port during the winter months for the perfect opportunity to enjoy Christmas market cruises, which offer enchanting views of the city's festive lights and decorations, along with the chance to shop for unique gifts, savour seasonal treats, and take part in traditional holiday festivities.

Bratwurst to Beer

Renowned for its hearty, flavorful dishes that draw on a rich culinary heritage. From savoury sausages and stews to crispy schnitzel and warm pretzels, there is something to satisfy every appetite. Sample a wide range of brews on offer, including crisp lagers, refreshing wheat beers, and dark, malty stouts. Wine lovers can also enjoy the much underrated Riesling; just one of the world-class German wines that is favoured above the ubiquitous beer.
