The tributaries of the Rhine

The Rhine keeps on surprising. Its tributaries are gateways to historical and natural attractions. Beautiful vineyards, forested hills or medieval towns: the Rhine has got it all. Its tributaries include the Moselle, the Saar, the Main and the Neckar.


Romantic wine villages and steep vineyards characterize the incomparable landscape along the Moselle. The river flows through Lorraine, then forms the border between Germany and Luxembourg and finally meanders in many river bends between the Eifel and the Hunsrück into the Rhine. Along the way, it flows past many exciting and historic places such as Trier, Bernkastel-Kues and Cochem, all of which are well worth a visit.


A wildly romantic landscape is waiting to be discovered. Forested hills line the shore and picturesque small towns invite you to visit. The Saar Loop near Mettlach offers a unique and breathtaking view.


Our routes along the Main start near Bamberg. From there it flows through the wine-growing region of Franconia, past famous wine villages and through the beautiful baroque city of Würzburg. The small medieval towns of Wertheim and Miltenberg are just as worth a visit as cosmopolitan Frankfurt or Mainz at the confluence of the Rhine.


Cities such as Heidelberg, Heilbronn, Ludwigsburg and Stuttgart lie on the banks of the Neckar. History, romance, baroque castles and the typical Swabian atmosphere meet here. Numerous ruins and fortresses line the river’s course.
