Arnhem - Düsseldorf
After a brief introduction, we'll set sail for Germany at 09:30. On this first day of your holiday, we will sail through the impressive Ruhr area. In the Altstadt (Old Town) of Dusseldorf, a lively atmosphere prevails in the evening, and it feels as if the day will never end.
Düsseldorf - Bonn
As one of the oldest cities in Germany, Bonn possesses a rich and fascinating history. As well as the many museums and government buildings, the city also has long pedestrianised shopping streets and atmospheric squares.
Bonn - Coblenz
We'll leave Bonn early in the morning. Throughout the morning you'll notice the scenery along the Rhine slowly changing. As soon as we pass the Siebengebirge hills you'll see the first vineyards, fortresses and castles. We'll dock at Coblenz in the Deutsches Eck mid-afternoon. Here the Moselle joins the Rhine. You will be able to enjoy a magnificent view over the city and both rivers from the Ehrenbreitstein fortress on the opposite bank, which you can reach by cable car.
Coblenz - Zell
The Moselle has been canalised since 1963, and before arriving in Zell, we’ll pass through multiple locks. Between the steep mountain slopes, covered with numerous vines, you can imagine yourself in a completely different world. The wines of Zell are world famous. Who hasn't heard of the delicious Zeller Schwarze Katz Moselle wine? Picturesque Zell is small but very lively.
Zell - Bernkastel
We will enjoy the beautiful Moselle valley to the fullest, and arrive at the idyllic Bernkastel during lunch. In the middle of the city centre you will also find centuries-old half-timbered houses on the enclosed market square.
Bernkastel - Remich
We'll sail further upstream until we arrive in Luxembourg. Here, we'll first make a short stop in Grevenmacher for those who want to join in an interesting excursion(*) to the capital of the Grand Duchy. After that we sail to the wine town of Remich, a popular tourist town at the foot of the vineyards.
Remich - Saarburg
With the Rhine and the Moselle still in your thoughts, the Saar might seem narrower than it really is. In order to reach the centre of Saarburg you will need to complete quite a climb, but once you reach the top you won't believe your eyes. In the middle of this attractive little town, you'll find a beautiful waterfall. You can enjoy the magnificent spectacle from one of the many outdoor cafés.
Saarburg - Trier
While you enjoy the natural surroundings, we'll sail towards Trier this morning. This city has a rich history that is reflected in a wealth of attractions. The 'Porta Nigra' (Black Gate) is undoubtedly the most famous.
Trier - Traben-Trarbach
We leave Trier behind and sail down the Moselle to Traben-Trarbach. This picture-perfect little town is ideal for a wine-tasting session. Above the town from the Grevenburg Castle there is a great view of the Moselle Valley.
Traben-Trarbach - Cochem
Our next destination, Cochem, is one of the most famous tourist attractions on the Moselle. The beautiful scenery, rugged mountain slopes, monuments from the middle ages, and of course the river that flows through the town, make Cochem the bustling heart of this area. The Reichsburg Castle at the top of the mountain offers a stunning view over the Moselle Valley and the town.
Cochem - Andernach
Before we leave the Moselle, we still have another wonderful day of sailing through almost fairytale-like surroundings. After lunch we'll dock in Andernach. This was once one of the fifty Roman fortifications along the Rhine. The narrow streets behind the city walls allow you to re-live bygone times.
Andernach - Düsseldorf
We'll sail with the current past large cities like Bonn and Cologne. We'll arrive in Dusseldorf at the beginning of the afternoon. You can spend the afternoon here shopping, and then recovering at one of the many cafés in the Altstadt (Old Town).
Düsseldorf - Arnhem
The time to say farewell is getting nearer. Only now do you realise how much the Rhine, Moselle and Saar differ from each other. We're expected in Arnhem at 14:00, and everyone can return home fully satisfied.
