Mulled Wine on the Rhine

Enjoy a Christmas market cruise from our popular hotel in Boppard, one of the prettiest towns on the romantic Rhine, located in a scenic riverside location on a horseshoe bend in the river. With charming half-timbered buildings and snug wine taverns serving locally produced Riesling, Boppard offers a warming winter break.

The Christmas market cruise will transport us from Boppard to the wonderful Rüdesheim Christmas market. With musical entertainment on board plus a visit from Santa, this festive scenic cruise glides past the romantic landscape full of vineyards, castles, fairytales, legends and Christmas traditions. We have a different perspective on our return journey when the Loreley Valley and castles along the river are lit up.

One of the brightest and most popular Christmas markets in Germany, set in the town’s chocolate-box old quarter, the romantic old town is filled with more than 100 festive stalls selling traditional food and gifts from around the world.

The famous Drosselgasse lane is filled with a huge choice of handicrafts and food and drink - from brandy-filled chocolates, roasted walnuts and mulled wine to candles, porcelain, paintings, woodcarvings and Finnish specialities as well as a taste of the Far East in the Mongolian marquee!

An absolute must is to try the famous Rüdesheim Coffee – made with locally distilled Asbach Uralt Brandy, whipped cream and served in an authentic Rüdesheim coffee set – it would be rüde not to!

Europe’s biggest nativity scene can also be found in Rüdesheim with life-size figures which can be admired on the market square. Music, dancing and plenty of festive fun also adds to the Christmas spirit!
