Wine on the Rhine

The Rhine Valley is renowned for its vineyards, stunning scenery and historic towns. Our new packaged tour gives you a taste of the best bits of the valley with a cruise on the Rhine whilst enjoying a traditional German Bergisch waffle and a full day exploring the city and castle of Heidelberg topped off with wine tasting in the Schlossweinstube at Heidelberg Castle.
Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel before dinner.

Day 2 Boppard
Today, we embark on a 2.5 hour cruise from Rüdesheim to Boppard, taking in the stunning views whilst enjoying a Bergisch waffle and a hot drink. We arrive in Boppard in the early afternoon for free time at leisure. Boppard has many interesting attractions, including its Roman Fort, 12th century St Severus Church, 14th century Carmelite Church, the baroque Church of St Pankratius and the Electoral Castle of Boppard.

Day 3 Rüdesheim Driver’s Day Off
We spend today at leisure. You could take the cable car up to the Niederwald Memorial, enjoying the amazing views and exploring the famous Drosselgasse area in the heart of Rüdesheim's old town, sampling a glass of wine along the way! For the more adventurous, why not take the train to Cologne or Koblenz?
