Main River

The Main River is approximately 327 miles long and it flows beside many of Germany’s major towns and cities such as Frankfurt, Mainz, Wurzburg and Obernburg.

Frankfurt being located beside the Main River means that it is often a popular stop-off destination for river cruises and people visiting the city on river cruises will be able to get a glimpse of two of the tallest skyscrapers in the European Union.

Neckar River

The Neckar River is another popular route for river cruise tours as it is a right-bank tributary of the Rhine River in south western Germany.

Danube River

The Danube River begins in western Germany and passes through an amazing nine countries: Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Romania and Ukraine.

The Danube is steeped in history and played a pivotal role in the political evolution of central and south Eastern Europe.

See Sights on Luxury Baltic Cruise

Suomenlinna in Helsinki

A visit to what was once the greatest sea fortress in the Baltic is a short ferry ride away, but is a spectacular sight to see. Catacombs and old fortifications mix with restaurants and grounds that are excellent for picnics, making a trip to Suomenlinna the ideal place for a taste of Finnish history.

The Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg

The centre of St Petersburg is home to many UNESCO world heritage sites, and this is one of the best. The Hermitage itself is a wonderful piece of architectural work, and inside you can find priceless paintings by the likes of Da Vinci, Michealangelo and Rembrandt. The museum is home to over 3 million pieces from across the globe so there is plenty to see.

The archipelago in Stockholm

The natural beauty of the Swedish city should not go unappreciated. The city itself is made up of 14 islands connected by around 50 bridges, and this kind of landscape continues with the archipelago which is made up of around 24,000 islands. This makes for great fun in the form of island hopping and ferries can take passengers all round the archipelago.

The Medieval Old Town in Tallinn

Tallinn is famous for its historical centre which is filled with cobbled streets and medieval houses, wonderfully preserved for a capital city. More modern buildings occur alongside the Old Town but the 15th-17th buildings remain intact in a compact area easily explored by foot. Sipping a cup of coffee and watching the world go by in Raekoja Plats, the medieval square, is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.
