The Divine Rhine & Plenty of Wine

The Rhine Valley is renowned for its vineyards, stunning scenery  and historic towns, and our fantastic packaged tour gives us a taste of the best bits of this picturesque valley. We enjoy spectacular views on cable car and chairlift rides and include a river cruise and guided tour of the Eberbach Monastery, with plenty of wine tastings along the way!

PACKAGED ITINERARY

Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel in time for dinner.
Day 2 Rüdesheim, Eberbach Monastery & Wine Tasting
This morning we catch the cable car from Rüdesheim up to the Niederwald Monument, affording us spectacular views over the Rhine Valley as we go. From here, we continue by coach to Jagdschloss Niederwald from where we descend by chairlift down to Assmannshausen, where we board a river boat for a scenic cruise back to Rüdesheim. After free time for lunch here, we visit the Eberbach Monastery for a 90 minute guided tour and tasting of Eberbach Riesling wine. Taste buds tingling, we make our way to the RheinWeinWelt wine cellar to sample more of the good stuff – we taste 5 wines, helping ourselves from the numerous self-serve dispensers. There are around 160 different wines from the Rhine region on offer here, so we must choose wisely!
Day 3 Rüdesheim Driver’s Day Off
We spend today at leisure in Rüdesheim. We can spend time exploring the famous  Drosselgasse area in the heart of Rüdesheim’s old town, sampling a glass of winealong the way, or, for the more adventurous among us, we may wish to take the train to the fantastic cities of Cologne, Koblenz or Mainz for the day.

This morning we head to the famous medieval city of Heidelberg. This outstanding city boasts the oldest – and one of the finest – universities in the  whole of Germany. To help us get our bearings we enjoy a 90 minute guided walking tour of the city before spending the rest of the day at leisure. As we wander through the narrow streets of the Old Town, we can admire the iconic Heidelberg Palace that dominates the skyline here as well as the Alte Brücke (Old Bridge) straddling the Neckar river.
