We continue our journey to Cologne. There is retail therapy in the shopping streets behind the Dom (Cathedral), and you can also visit The House of 4711 located on the Glockenstrasse, where you can buy a bottle of the world’s most famous Eau de Cologne. A visit to the Chocolate Museum is one of the many things you can do in this city.

As soon as we have passed Bonn the panorama is transformed into a hilly landscape. The vineyards at the foot of the Siebengebirge hills are laden with the grapes that will soon be harvested. We will arrive in Koblenz after lunch. The Deutsche Eck (German Corner) with its statue of Emperor William I and Ehrenbreitstein castle, high up above the town, are just a few of the sights you can visit this afternoon. The captain will invite you to the Captain’s Dinner in the evening.
