As the summer sun sets over the Rhine valley, a flotilla of beautifully illuminated ships makes its way down the legendary Rhine, which basks in the glow of a thousand Bengal lights, while hilltop fireworks create shimmering cascades of colour high above the mountains, castles and vineyards. This is the Rhine in Flames, an annual celebration of the wine harvest season which brings joy to the towns and villages along the river, drawing visitors from near and far. Join the festivities on this relaxing cruise and visit treasured spots, including the quaint wine town of Rüdesheim and the fascinating city of Mainz, before taking up position for this breathtaking event.
