along the water

Discover the cities of Alsace and its bucolic places by gliding along the waterways of our beautiful region…

Waterways of Alsace

Alsace is full of river routes: crossing Alsace on a boat while discovering its typical landscapes is quite possible! The different waterways offer an idyllic setting to visit our beautiful region along the water…


Different types of cruises allow you to discover Alsace from different angles by being guided along the waterways. A visit of our region of several days on a cruise with all the services included allows to be carried by the rhythm of the Alsatian water.


CroisiEurope offers cruises from Strasbourg to discover the enchanting landscapes of Alsace and the Rhine Valley all year round. 

European Waterways

European Waterways offers a 7-day/6-night cruise on the Marne-Rhine Canal to discover Alsace-Lorraine. On board, tastings of the local cuisine will delight the taste buds and the excursions proposed over the 7 days will reveal the sites not to be missed.

Mini cruises

Small cruises of a few hours are also proposed for a discovery of the city of Strasbourg:

Bateaux de l’Ill

Bateaux de l’Ill offers its “bateau-mouche” Charles Frey to welcome up to 60 people for private events such as seminars or team building days while enjoying the city of Strasbourg.


Batorama circulates to give an overview of Strasbourg from the river side of the city. Several tours are offered to suit everyone’s taste.

Boat trips and rentals

Boat and barge rentals

For a freer visit, boat and barge rentals are available. At your disposal, boats with and without a license to allow everyone to sail on the Alsatian rivers. No need to panic! Before leaving the boats, the rental teams give the necessary instructions for a smooth trip and for novices to lead their boats.

Flat-bottomed boat rides

For a bucolic moment close to nature and more intimate, flat-bottomed boat rides are offered in several of our towns and villages. The rustling of the water as it touches the boat rocks the small groups for a soothing and relaxing visit in the heart of our Alsace.
