After the huge success of this tour in 2018 we once again return to the lovely hotel Ebertor in the riverside location at Boppard. This year we are including a cable car in Koblenz as well as two fabulous boat trips and the Vulkan Express train through wooded valleys from Brohl to Engeln.

Tour Itinerary

           

Monday – Our luxury coach will depart this morning, and head to Folkstone for our Eurotunnel crossing to Calais. We make our way to our hotel in Boppard with a welcome glass of wine before dinner. Comfort stops on-route.

 

Tuesday – Today we take you to Koblenz and begin our day with a breath-taking cable car ride above the Rhine to the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress. Enjoy spectacular views of the UNESCO ‘upper middle Rhine valley’ world heritage site from one of eighteen panoramic enclosed cars. You may enjoy lunch in the restaurant and time to enjoy the museum before we return down to the river for a relaxing river cruise with an opportunity to see some of the German castles and fortresses that stand on the banks of this beautiful stretch of the Rhine.

 

Wednesday – Today we spend the day in Rüdesheim in the Rhine Valley, famous for its Riesling wine making and the enchanting Drosselgasse, the centre of town with its shops, taverns and restaurants. This afternoon we continue by coach and climb the 132m up the slate rock bank to the Lorelei on the banks of the Rhine. Once at the top, you will enjoy magnificent views of the Rhine below. The Rock produces an echo which is associated with the legend of a beautiful maiden who threw herself into the Rhine in despair over a faithless lover and was transformed into a siren luring fisherman to destruction. We will be sailing past the Lorelei statue on our boat trip on Saturday.

 

Thursday – Today is a free day for you to relax and enjoy the lovely town of Boppard, you may wish to join us for a walking tour of the town or take the little road train around the town for a 25-minute tour with commentary.

 

Friday – After breakfast we travel to Brohl to ride the Vulkan Express train for a one-and-a-half-hour journey through wooded valleys and villages to Engeln. At the end of the line our coach will be waiting to take us the short distance to Remagen, a town rich in history and brimming with churches, castles and monuments. Before free time for lunch and to explore the town, we will visit the Ludendorff Bridge, built in WW1 to move troops and logistics west over the Rhine to reinforce the western front.

 

Saturday – A day free of coach travel today as we catch a boat from the landing stage outside our hotel and enjoy a scenic cruise up to the Lorelei Rock. Returning via St Goer, we will leave the boat for an opportunity for lunch before re-joining it to take us back to the hotel for coffee and cake on the terrace.

 

Sunday – Time to leave Germany and retrace our steps back to Calais for our crossing on the Eurotunnel. Comfort stops on-route to our waiting taxis.
