Q – We absolutely adore your site and hope you can answer a very specific question for us. We are going to take the plunge and do a Rhine cruise next summer. But the Rhine is a long river and we’d love to know if there is one part of it that is considered the “Must See” section? Oh, we have one more irrelevant question, really an argument between my husband and I. Is this Q and A section written by a man or a woman?
A – The “Not To Be Missed” section of the Rhine River is what is referred to as “The Upper Middle Rhine Valley”. The most beautiful stretch of the river is between Koblenz and Rudesheim. This entire area is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and it is protected by a commission of local communities dedicated to its preservation. That is why there are so few Walmart’s along the river’s edge.
The answer to your second question is “Yes”. Best not to refer to a future cruise event as “taking the plunge”. It is considered bad luck. Thanks so much and don’t even consider a Rhine cruise that does not include the “Upper Middle”.
