Experience an unforgettable holiday cruising along two of the world’s most famous rivers – the Rhine and the Moselle. Admire stunning scenery from the comfort of your cruise ship and soak up the atmosphere of the captivating Rhine Valley, where legends and fairy tales emerge from its sweeping forests, medieval castles and historic cities, alongside miles of rolling vineyards.
Day 1 Embark in Cologne
We arrive late afternoon in Cologne, 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, renowned for its impressive 13th century “Liebfrauen” church. After lunch, we 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, reaching the enchanting medieval town of Cochem by lunchtime, overlooked by one of the most beautiful castles in the region, the colossal 11th century Reichsburg Castle. 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. We have the afternoon free to explore idyllic Rüdesheim, a picture-book town with a long tradition of wine growing, famous 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 cosy courtyards where there is live music and dancing every day.

Day 6 Rüdesheim – Koblenz
This morning, we 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 and its abundance of cultural monuments, historic buildings, cosy lanes and alleyways, welcoming squares and river promenades make visitors feel right at home.

Day 7 Koblenz - Königswinter - 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 Cologne for our last overnight stay.
