Current information on the coronavirus and hygiene concept

Due to the current Corona pandemic with all the associated official regulations and requirements for social life, there is a great deal of uncertainty with regard to travelling. We would like to take away these uncertainties and assure you that together with our partners, whether shipping company or local guides, we will do everything possible to ensure that your river cruise is as safe as possible and an unforgettable experience. We are absolutely aware of our responsibility towards our guests and our ship's crew and are always concerned about your health. Therefore, we implement all current official measures on our ships and during shore excursions and travel, for example, with an adjusted number of guests in order to be able to continue to offer you the comfort you are accustomed to.

Please note that all regulations in this hygiene concept are based on the current official requirements. Daily changes are always taken into account and immediately implemented on board.

We look forward to welcoming you on board soon - We wish you a pleasant journey!

Current information about - Embarkation - Proofs - Entry

Together with you, we would like to contribute to making carefree travel the norm again. That's why we now apply the 2G principle for new bookings starting with season 2022.

This means that all our guests over 12 years of age must confirm at the time of booking that they will be able to present one of the following certified proofs at the start of their trip according to the current coronavirus entry regulation:

  • Full vaccination coverage or
  • Proven recovery from Covid-19

Children under 12 years of age are exempt from this requirement and must present certified negative proof by PCR test (max. 48 hours old) prior to travel.

Also, for already existing bookings the above mentioned 2G regulation is valid on our cruises from the mentioned date.

Our recommendation: Keep your proof as a digital COVID certificate from the EU, either as a printed QR code or in one of the EU-connected smartphone apps, such as the RKI's Cov-Pass app from Germany. Information on this can be found at:

In addition, supplementary proof and documents are sometimes required for entry into certain travel areas. Before entering the country, we kindly ask you to inquire about the current regulations of your starting destination (also regarding the return journey) as well as other destinations of your booked trip:

We ask you to arrive with a sufficient number of medical masks and FFP2 masks, as it is mandatory to wear them.
