COACH HOLIDAY ITINERARY 

DAY 1 UK to Cologne. We depart home area and cross the English Channel by ferry and travel to Cologne making suitable refreshment stops. Arrive in Cologne late afternoon where we board our ship.

DAY 2 Cologne - Andernach. We set sail early this morning, passing Remagen, famous as the site of a World War II 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. After lunch, we will have time to explore this historic town and its attractions before heading back to our ship in time for dinner.

DAY 3 Andernach - Cochem. Today, we cruise along the picturesque Moselle river, fabulously set in the heart of the Moselle valley wine-growing region. By lunchtime, we will reach 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. After lunch, we will disembark and spend time in this beautiful town, with its baroque styled architecture and spectacular scenery, nestled in the most romantic part of the Moselle Valley.

DAY 4 Cochem – Boppard. 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 into the charming town of Boppard where we will have some free time to explore this ancient town before dinner.

DAY 5 Boppard – Rüdesheim. This morning, we cruise to Rüdesheim and marvel en route at some of the Rhine Valley’s most famous landmarks including the 130m high Lorelei Rock, named after the Rhine water siren, the legend of whom is as old as time itself, and the Mäuseturm, an ancient customs post now used as a beacon tower for shipping. We have the afternoon free to explore idyllic Rüdesheim, located at the gateway to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Upper Middle Rhine Valley. This picture-book town has a long tradition of wine growing and the town is renowned for its Riesling and Pinot Noir wines. Overlooked by the towers of the ruined Ehrenfels Castle, a stroll along the charming paved Drosselgasse is a must. This famous 144m long lane is lined with traditional taverns, cafés and intimate courtyards where there is live music and dancing every day.

DAY 6 Rüdesheim – Koblenz. This morning, we depart and make our way along the breathtaking Middle Rhine to Koblenz, arriving in the early afternoon. The historic, 2,000 year old city of Koblenz is located where the Rhine and Moselle rivers meet, and where the “Deutsches Eck” headland proudly marks this spot. Koblenz prides itself on its friendliness and welcomes visitors from all over the world. Dating back to Roman times, it has an abundance of cultural monuments, historic buildings, cosy lanes and alleyways and its welcoming squares and river promenades make visitors feel right at home.

DAY 7 Koblenz – Cologne. After an early morning departure we arrive in Königswinter, an elegant resort at the foot of the Siebengebirge Mountains, where we can spend the morning at leisure exploring its attractions, including the Drachenfelsbahn funicular train which travels to the top of Drachenfels where the “Dragon Castle” and spectacular views can be enjoyed. In the early afternoon we leave the town and cruise past the city of Bonn en route back to the city of Cologne for our last overnight stay. Arriving mid-afternoon, we can enjoy our last afternoon discovering historic Cologne, one of Germany’s largest and liveliest cities, its river skyline dwarfed by the soaring twin steeples of its spectacular gothic cathedral, before returning to our ship for a farewell dinner with the Captain.

DAY 8 Return to UK. After breakfast, we disembark and make our way home from this beautiful region, making suitable refreshment stops.
