Your Itinerary

Rhine River

Cologne Wed 07 Jul 2021

Rhine River

The romantic Rhine River flows down from the Swiss Alps and meanders its scenic route through central and Western Europe until it reaches the North Sea. Historically significant for centuries, a Rhine River cruise means sighting waterfront castles and fortresses, medieval bridges and fairy-tale villages, hilly vineyards and stunning landscapes.

Cochem, Germany

Cochem Thu 08 Jul 2021

Cochem, Germany

Although small, the fairytale-esque German town of Cochem is sure to make a big impression. Situated within the breathtaking Moselle Valley on one of the winding Moselle River’s seemingly endless hairpin bends, Cochem is amongst Europe’s most charming and picturesque locations. Sailing here is always simply unforgettable, with views of unspoilt lush-green countryside to enjoy from your riverboat, while in the town itself there are plenty of eye-catching sights to discover too. Tucked away within the town’s narrow streets and twisting, maze-like alleys you can uncover a jumble of restored and remarkably well-preserved half-timbered houses; remains of the old town walls and fortifications such as the Endert Gate Tower and the Guard House, which date back to the 14th century; and the baroque-style, early-18th century Town Hall. A walk along the Moselle promenade is highly recommended too; while it is also well worth stopping by one of the friendly pubs or restaurants to try Riesling wines which are produced from grapes sourced at nearby vineyards.

Trier, Germany

Trier, Germany Fri 09 Jul 2021

Trier, Germany

It’s no surprise that Germany’s oldest city is full of fascinating ancient sites, many of which date back to Roman occupation from 17 BC, and helped give Trier the nickname of ‘Rome of the North’. Close to the border with Luxembourg, Trier sits on banks on the Moselle and at the foothills of the Eifel, Hunsrück and Mosel mountains. Among Trier’s ancient marvels are many well-persevered Roman monuments, including the outstanding Porta Nigra city gates, amphitheatre, Moselle Bridge and Barbara Baths, all of which have been classified as UNESCO World Heritage sites. In addition, the city is home to Germany’s oldest cathedral, the High Cathedral of Saint Peter in Trier, and the remarkable gothic Church of our Lady (Liebfrauenkirche). Aside from the city’s architectural delights, Trier falls within the Moselle wine region, with vineyards lining the steep banks of the river and used to grow Riesling grapes. The grapes are used to produce the famous wine of the same name, known the world over for its sweet and fruity flavour.

Remich, Luxembourg

Remich, Luxembourg Sat 10 Jul 2021

Remich, Luxembourg

A small tourist town, hidden amongst vineyards on the banks of the Moselle River in Luxembourg; Remich is not only an important wine centre, but captivates visitors with its promenade of birch and cherry trees and picturesque lanes alluding to a great historic past. Be sure to visit the Bacchus fountain, offering coolness on warm summer days, or wander to St. Nicolas Gate, built to honour the patron saint of fishermen and sailors; before stopping to sample the famous wine in one of the many taverns located in the myriad of tiny streets and squares of the town. Do take a tour of a wine cellar to discover how the delicious nectar is produced. Remich has an old-fashioned appeal, lending itself perfectly to leisurely lunches on beautiful terraces, romantic strolls along the river or exploring small, local museums. It’s not difficult to see why it’s known as the ‘Pearl of the Moselle’.

Grevenmacher, Luxembourg

Grevenmacher, Luxembourg Sat 10 Jul 2021

Grevenmacher, Luxembourg

The attractive town of Grevenmacher is located on the left bank of the beautiful Moselle River in Luxembourg, close to the border with Germany, and is now an important vine-growing and commercial centre, having previously been a fortified town. The Roman heritage is still felt in the town, coupled with many medieval sites. The Medieval Tower is part of the walled city but is now a hugely popular holiday rental. Contrasting with this, the Butterfly Garden is well worth a visit, and transports visitors into a tropical oasis, where hundreds of butterflies flutter around. The stunning flowers and idyllic atmosphere of the garden must also be explored. For a museum with a difference, visit the Kulturhuef Museum, featuring two permanent exhibitions. The first of these is a ‘Print and Playing Card Museum’ retracing the history of playing cards, where they were produced in the town for five generations; and the other focuses on the many forms of printing through history. No visit to Grevenmacher is complete without visiting the Domaines Vinsmoselle Caves de Grevenmacher, the oldest wine cellar of the Luxembourg Moselle.

Bernkastel

Bernkastel Sun 11 Jul 2021

Bernkastel

Known as the 'heart of the Middle Moselle', beautiful Bernkastel-Kues is an enchanting twin-town spread along both the east and west banks of the River Mosel at the centre of the picturesque Moselle Valley. Set amongst a backdrop of stunning lush-green scenery and world-famous vineyards, including the revered Berkasteler Doctor, Bernkastel-Kues is best known for producing some of Europe's finest and most expensive wines. As you might expect, many consider Bernkastel-Kues' plethora of wineries and taverns – there are around 100 here serving various types of Mosel and Riesling wines – as the main attraction, however the town has much more to recommend it than just the delicious local tipples.

Traban Trabach, Germany

Traban Trabach, Germany Mon 12 Jul 2021

Traban Trabach, Germany

Affectionately known as the ‘Jewel of the Central Moselle’, Traben-Trarbach was once a busy wine trading port, a town of great wealth at the turn of the last century. Today visitors can still uncover the large underground wine cellars and outstanding art nouveau villas on guided tours, sample the local wine or stay in one of the magnificent houses. Take time to explore the vine-bordered amphitheatre, woods and vineyards of this picturesque town nestled on the Moselle, before discovering a wealth of attractive buildings and architectural treasures. Discover the ruins of Grevenburg Castle, which house a cosy tavern and castle garden, and offers stunning views of the Moselle River; or explore the Mont Royal Fortress Ruins, where a few remnants of the cellar vaults and casemates are still preserved. The plans of the fortress and archaeological findings are on display in the Middle Moselle Museum, along with examples of the history of Traben-Trarbach and a unique collection of furnishings from a house belonging to wealthy families in the 18th and 19th centuries.
