Alsace & Lorraine Cruises

Alsace-Lorraine is a unique corner of France. Discover a land of storybook castles, rolling vineyards of Alsatian wines as well as Baroque, Gothic and Romanesque architecture. For centuries, the great empires of Europe confronted one another at this strategic and military crossroads. The area’s unique blend of French and German influences are strongly evident in its customs, cuisine, wines, architecture and language.

Cruise Map

Here you will see canalside villages of half-timbered houses, perhaps with a stork nesting in the chimney top. The waterway winds through steep sided forested valleys and features an amazing boat lift which carries the barge sideways 450 feet up the hillside and several tunnels which we cruise through by candlelight.

The deluxe 12 passenger Panache offers 6 night cruises in Alsace from summer through to October and the ultra-deluxe 8 passenger La Nouvelle Etoile spends four weeks a year cruising this unique region.
