New Rhine River Cruise Stock Photos. Photographer Chris Star has just published a new set of Rhine River Cruise stock images.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 amazing photos from Chris Star here.
