  • History and Culture
  • Heidelberg

Join us aboard the elegant MS Royal Crown and cruise from Basle to Budapest along the wonderfully scenic Rhine, the fascinating Main and majestic Danube rivers. From Switzerland we will sail effortlessly through France, Germany, Austria and Slovakia to Hungary. September is the perfect month for such a journey when the weather still holds its summer warmth and the crowds have departed the towns and villages.

We will cruise through ever changing landscapes of idyllic rolling hills, pastures and vines, past centuries old villages, towns and imperial cities which have witnessed the fascinating and turbulent history of Middle Europe. The region is known for its intriguing history, superb musical legacy and delightful wine production and we have included some interesting events at a variety of locations to complement our travels.

Among his national responsibilities in the Church of England he was lead bishop on media issues for a long period, and has served on the Lords Select Committee on Communications. He has been a frequent presenter of Radio 4’s “Thought for the Day”.
