The Rhine & Moselle Valleys are among Germany’s most beautiful, here fairytale castles perch serenely on hillsides, idyllic villages appear at every turn and green rolling hills are covered by glorious vineyards!

 

The pretty town of BOPPARD is located between the green of the Hunsrück hills and the blue band of the Rhine. The old town still has some of its medieval town walls along with romantic squares, little lanes and a wonderful riverside promenade. Dominating the skyline is the twin towers of St Severus Church and not far away is the Alte Burg (Electoral Castle) now a museum but once collected taxes from the river boats. A GUIDED WALKING TOUR of the town is included. For the more adventurous take the Boppard Sesselbahn (chairlift) for magnificent panoramic views of the Vierseenblick where the river appears separated into four different lakes!

 

RUDESHEIM AM RHEIN is a picturesque German winemaking town situated on the banks of the Rhine and has a rich and cultural background. At the heart of the old town is the charming Drosselgasse, this historical street attracts more 3 million visitors every year and is complete with narrow cobblestone alleys and timber-framed taverns, traditional buildings, restaurants and shops. For scenic views take the cable car to the Germania monument for an impressive panorama over the vineyards and river.

Enjoy a CRUISE BETWEEN RUDESHEIM AND BOPPARD where views from the river are second to none with hillside vineyards, pretty houses, castles and wildlife along the banks of the Rhine.

 

The picturesque town of COCHEM situated on the Moselle River, is a must see! Discover narrow streets and twisty alleyways, lovingly restored half-timbered houses, an historic market place, a beautiful medieval castle and town gates.
