Rhine River Cruise Photography. Travel Photographer Chris Star has just published a new page of Rhine River Cruise photography.Cruising the middle-Rhine River is an excellent way to discover the castles and medieval towns of this part of Germany. Visit the old Roman ruins in Boppard, then board a steam-powered paddle-wheeler going towards Rudesheim. The boat stops at most towns along the way, including St. Goar and Bacharach. Go ashore and explore wherever you like, then catch the next boat to continue your journey.

The middle-Rhine became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2002, to help preserve the local history.

This is a selection of digital stock images are from a Rhine River cruise in 2011.Check out more stock photography by Chris Star here.
