Since 1974, we have specialised in creating luxury hotel barge holidays on some of the most beautiful inland waterways of Europe. Over the past 4 decades, as well as building up the most extensive range of hotel barges in Europe, we have gained a unique expertise covering all aspects of the hotel barging industry; from designing and building the actual vessels, researching and creating our bespoke itineraries, to crew training, fine wine selection and choosing food suppliers.

You can rest assured that every member of European Waterways, from the top down is passionate about hotel barging, and your clients will be well looked after.

Aboard their hotel barge, your clients will glide serenely along waterways that pass through magnificent countryside; be taken on fascinating local excursions; indulge in delicious meals, fine wines and comfortable accommodation – whilst all the time being pampered by their attentive crew.

Our exclusive collection of hotel barges can accommodate between 6 and 20 passengers and are ideal for either an individual cruise with a group of like-minded people, or for those wanting a whole-barge charter for a group of family or friends.

Hotel barging is a unique experience and our Sales Team are happy to assist with any sales, commission or marketing enquiries to help you sell more European Waterways hotel barge cruises.
