Thursday 19 July:
Cologne - Bonn
We’ll arrive in Cologne towards the end of the morning. There is excellent shopping in the shopping streets behind the Dom (Cathedral). A visit to the chocolate museum is one of the many things you can do in this city. Or visit a beautiful castle(*) nearby. You can enjoy the music and the surroundings from the sun deck as we sail towards Bonn in the evening.
Friday 20 July:
Bonn - Remagen - Andernach
We will spend some time in the morning in Germany’s former capital. During lunch we set course for our next destination, Remagen. The further we sail along the Rhine, the more the scenery changes. It is now more hilly and the first vineyards are coming into view. One of the things you can do in Remagen is visit the Peace Museum. During the Second World War the capture of the Rhine bridge by the allies was an important step towards peace. Early in the evening we will sail to the small town of Andernach where we will stay overnight.
Saturday 21 July:
Andernach - Lorelei - Rüdesheim - Coblenz
Today we will pass by the highlight of the trip, the Lorelei. On our way to Rüdesheim we will sail along the Romantic Rhine where you can enjoy beautiful views. You will pass by many fortresses and castles on the densely covered mountain tops. Before we sail pass the Lorelei we will make a short stop and you will be offered a transfer to a lookout point. From here you’ll have wonderful views of the Rhine Valley and the Lorelei. The Rhine here is 25 metres deep and 113 metres wide which makes sailing along it very impressive. Once back on board you can enjoy a delicious barbecue on the sun deck. It won’t be long before we arrive in Rüdesheim and if you are taking part in the sightseeing tour(*) through the vineyards, the little train will be waiting for you. Rüdesheim is renowned for its many wine bars, historic half-timbered houses and the Drosselgasse. You can enjoy a delicious Riesling from the region in one of the lively Weinstuben in this narrow alleyway. During dinner we sail back to Coblenz.
