The Rhine & Moselle Valleys

Suggested Itinerary

Day 1 – Koblenz

Board our private executive coach at your designated pick up points – take the cross Channel ferry from your preferred port – continue to Koblenz and check in to the 3* Scholz Hotel.

Day 2 – Cochem & Bernkastel-Kues

The charming town of Cochem is dominated by the Reichsburg Castle rising more than 330 feet above the River Moselle – Bernkastel- Kues, with its beautiful Marktplatz of half-timbered, colourwashed houses with steep roofs and gables, is the ‘Pearl of the Moselle’ and high above the town stands the Landshut, the ruins of a 13th century castle.

Day 3 – Koblenz & Boppard

Koblenz is the largest city on the Rhine and among its sights are the 12th century Church of Our Lady and the magnificent Kurfurstliches Schloss, one of the most beautiful Renaissance buildings in Germany – cruise along the Rhine from Koblenz to Boppard where the rest of the day is free time to relax and explore.

Day 4 – St Goar & Rüdesheim

St Goar is on the most scenic stretch of the Rhine and you can take the train from the main shopping street up the hill to the museum in the ruins of Rheinfels Castle – continue along the Rhine to 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.

Day 5 – Trier

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

Day 6 – Koblenz to UK

Take our Channel crossing back to the UK and then return to our original departure points with comfort stops en route.

Tour Reviews

Reviews for The Rhine & Moselle Valleys

Date of tour: October 2016

I am very pleased to report that the trip to the Rhine and Moselle Valleys went really well. The coach was exceptionally comfortable. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and he imparted his information well. I was particularly impressed by his caring approach to people and his responsiveness. I wanted to have a farewell reception on our last evening and he came up trumps organising it with Frau Scholtz. I need not have worried. Our driver Neil was exceptional - so reliable, steady and friendly. The content of the tour was really well enjoyed by our members, particularly as we had no rain to interrupt our outside activities. Balance of free time was about right. Food is always a possible thorny issue but most of us found it to be very good. I did not receive any formal complaints. Service was also good. Hotel facilities are basic but clean and catered for everyone's needs. Overall I think the trip was very successful and good value for money.
