The joys of Europe’s Main River
Winding between Mainz and Bamberg, the Main passes through 34 locks—16 more connect it to the Danube via the Main-Danube Canal. While this engineering feat enables river travel across the entire length of Europe, it also unlocks a trove of unspoiled landscapes and historic towns.
A Norway native, Torstein (Tor) Hagen's experience in the shipping and cruise industries spans 40 years, including having led Viking since the company’s establishment in 1997. He earned a degree in physics at the Norwegian Institute of Technology, where he completed his master’s thesis related to artificial intelligence in 1966. He was awarded a Fulbright scholarship to study computers at Wesleyan University in the United States, and received an MBA from Harvard Business School in 1968.
