Tour Itinerary

           

Saturday - We arrive late afternoon in Cologne where we board our ship.

 

Sunday - Set sail early this morning, where you'll pass Remagen, famous as the site of a WWII battle for the town's bridge. We then continue towards the pretty town of Andernach, one of the oldest towns in Germany, which is renowned for its impressive 13th-century 'Liebfrauen' Church.

 

Monday - We depart today on the picturesque Moselle River, fabulously set at the heart of the Moselle Valley wine-growing region. By lunchtime we have reached the enchanting medieval town of Cochem, overlooked by the colossal, 11th-Century Reichsburg Castle, perched high on a hill above the town and one of the most beautiful castles in the region. Dinner and overnight on board.

 

Tuesday - This morning we sail back along the Moselle and join the Rhine once more, passing some of the region's most spectacular landscapes on the way. We arrive late afternoon in the charming town of Boppard where you’ll have some free time to explore the ancient town.

 

Wednesday - This morning, we cruise to Rüdesheim and on route, marvel at some of the Rhine Valley's most famous landmarks including the 130metre high Lorelei Rock, named after the Rhine Maiden sirens and the Mäuseturm, an ancient customs post now used as a beacon tower for shipping. The afternoon is free to explore Rüdesheim, a picture book wine town overlooked by the towers of ruined Ehrenfels Castle, and perhaps stroll along the charming paved Drosselgasse.

 

Thursday - This morning we depart and make our way along the Middle Rhine to Koblenz, arriving in the early afternoon. The historic city of Koblenz is located on the convergence of two rivers with the 'Deutsches Eck', proudly marking the place where the Rhine and Moselle Rivers meet. The city dates to Roman times and is a centre of the German wine trade.

 

Friday - After an early morning departure we arrive in Königswinter, an elegaresort at the foot of the Siebengebirge Mountains. In the early afternoon we leave the town and cruise past the city of Bonn, birthplace of Beethoven, to the city of Cologne for an overnight stay. Cologne dates back to Roman times and is one of Germany's largest and liveliest cities. Its river skyline is dwarfed by the soaring twin steeples of its spectacular Gothic cathedral. Enjoy free time to explore this historic city at leisure.

Saturday - After breakfast, disembark your ship for your return journey home.
