Itinerary

Day 1 – Fly to Germany

We take our scheduled flight from London to Frankfurt (regional flights available on request – please call) where we are met by our tour manager who will accompany us throughout our tour. Transfer in our private executive coach to 3* Hotel Scholz in Koblenz (or similar) for a four night stay on half board basis.

Day 2 – Koblenz & Cochem

This morning our optional guided tour of Koblenz, the largest city on the Rhine, takes in sights such as the 12th century Church of Our Lady and the magnificent Kurfürstliches Schloss, one of the most beautiful Renaissance buildings in Germany. We then travel on to the charming town of Cochem dominated by the Reichsburg Castle rising more than 330 ft above the River Moselle.

Day 3 – Rüdesheim & St Goar

The morning is spent at Rüdesheim, famous for the Drosselgasse - a narrow cobbled alley full of inns buzzing with the sound of revelry - but also boasting the remains of the 1,000 year old Bromersburg Castle. This afternoon you have the choice of either travelling by coach or joining an optional boat trip down the Rhine to the village of St Goar, located on the most scenic stretch of this beautiful river.

Day 4 – Trier

We spend the day in Trier, the oldest city in Germany. The city is home to the famous Porta Nigra, a huge and formidable mass of stone and the biggest Roman gateway north of the Alps, and the 12th century St Peter’s Cathedral, containing many rich treasures including the so called ‘Holy Undivided Robe’ of Christ.

Day 5 – Heidelberg & Oberammergau

We leave the Moselle Valley today and travel to Oberammergau. En route we stop at Heidelberg where you have the option of joining our guided tour taking in sights such as the Altstadt, the Castle and the University. We then check in to our allocated Category C hotels and guesthouses in and around Oberammergau for a two night stay. Dinner is included this evening.

Day 6 – Oberammergau Passion Play

This morning you have time to explore the village, visit the Oberammergau Museum and for lunch before we take our Category 1 or Category 2 seats for the Passion Play. The performance runs from 2.30pm till 10.30pm until 16th August and from 1.30pm till 9.30pm from 18th August, in each case with a three hour interval for included dinner.
