The Rhine in Flames, a magical and colorful show!

On several summer nights, the Rhine is set on fire for a unique and sparkling show. For this amazing occasion why not sail an itinerary allowing you to be in the front row of this world-famous event.

A dazzling show along the Romantic Rhine!

The Rhine Valley, from Bonn to Rüdesheim, becomes the scene of a spectacular firework show whose enchantment is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Along the banks of the Rhine, numerous sets of lights illuminate the landscapes, monuments, hills and castles of the banks of the Romantic Rhine. This event brings together the inhabitants of the villages and surroundings around popular festivals, wine festivals or markets with festive atmospheres.

To crown the natural spectacle that unfolds before your eyes, an ever-changing kaleidoscope of lights will illuminate the sky and dress it with a thousand colors.

One of the most beautiful viewpoints to fully admire this show is along the Rhine where the shimmering reflections are thrown into the water and immerse the spectators in a captivating, sensational and majestic atmosphere.

From the sun deck of the MS Gerard Schmitter, you will have a front row seat to admire the rain of sparks that plunge and animate the countryside of lights of an exceptional magic.
