Overview

Read reviews and enjoy exclusive savings on Uniworld's 11 Day Remarkable Rhine & Historic Holland. Explore Europe’s rich history and Jewish heritage on an incredible discovery of the Netherlands, Germany, France and Switzerland. Dive deep into the region’s culture, natural wonders, traditions and historical significance in a one-of-a-kind experience along the Rhine. Delve into the region’s world-renowned museums. Along the way, indulge in Central Europe’s delicious cuisine—Dutch cheese and fries, Alsatian choucroute, Swiss-style sausages,...read more Kölsch beer, unique wine vinegar aperitifs and Germany’s famous white wines.

Not only that, but you’ll discover Central Europe’s fascinating Jewish ties as part of our Jewish Heritage program—the only itinerary of its kind offered on the rivers.

Oh, and did we mention the scenery? Standing on the top deck of your ship, watching the ever-changing landscape turn increasingly dramatic, you’ll understand why people have been raving about the Rhine River Valley for centuries - and there’s definitely no cause to stop.

On select 2022 sailings from mid-April to early October, you’ll have the opportunity to visit the Netherlands’ World Horticultural Exhibition, Floriade. Happening once every 10 years, Floriade is an opportunity for Dutch cities to share their ideas for greener, healthier ways of life. Floriade 2022 is set to take place in Almere, just outside of Amsterdam, and construction is already underway! They’re building a demo “Green City of the Future” on the grounds that will eventually become a fully functional, entirely “green” new city. Stroll the expansive arboretum, sample healthful foods and learn about developments in sustainable architecture and energy.
