Viking Announces New River Itinerary and Additional Christmas Market Departure Dates

Viking announces Treasures of the Rhine, a new river voyage allowing guests the opportunity to experience Europe’s rich culture during winter. The new Middle Rhine itinerary debuts in December 2023 establishing Viking as the first to operate year-round on Europe’s rivers. This offers guests easier access to landmarks when there are typically fewer crowds.

“The Middle Rhine is one of our most popular destinations—with constantly changing views of hilltop castles, historic towns and terraced vineyards along the steep valley sides, it is a region that will always be best explored by the river,” said Torstein Hagen, Chairman of Viking. “Many of our guests have sailed the Rhine during other seasons, so we are pleased to offer a new option for those who may be interested experiencing Europe during a quieter time of year.”


Viking’s Treasures of the Rhine Itinerary

The 10-day Treasures of the Rhine itinerary allows guests to discover the enchanting landscape and rich cultures of the Middle Rhine, a UNESCO Site boasting turreted fortresses, grand cathedrals, medieval towns, and stunning scenery. Guests can admire the terraced vineyards dating back to the Romans and taste the region’s renowned red and white wines.

An ideal time to visit, winter offers Viking guests smaller crowds, easier access to landmarks, and opportunities to savor the culinary traditions of Alsace while exploring Amsterdam, Basel, and Cologne.

Hosting 190 guests in 95 staterooms, the award-winning fleet of identical Viking Longships offers a variety of stateroom categories. Onboard amenities include a restaurant, bar and lounge, library, and expansive sun deck. The ships feature al fresco dining on the revolutionary Aquavit Terrace and elegant Scandinavian design.

The river ships also offer environmentally considerate features, such as solar panels, an onboard organic herb garden, and energy-efficient hybrid engines for a remarkably smooth ride.

Booking Details

Treasures of the Rhine departure dates begin in December 2023 and run through early March 2024. Fares start at $1,999 per person. From now through May 31, 2023, Viking is offering its 25th Anniversary Sale for residents of the U.S. and Canada, with a $25 deposit for up to FREE airfare and special savings on all river 2023-2025 voyages.
