Description

TREASURES OF THE RHINE

It is undoubtedly one of the most impressive rivers in Central Europe, which rises in Lake Constance (Switzerland), passes through the French city of Strasbourg and it is in Germany where its beauty reaches its maximum splendour. On every rock, on every mountain there are castles, ruins or towers with black, narrow windows that make you feel as if centuries of history are watching you through them.  Discover with us the real gems that the majestic Rhine River hides along its course.
