Thursday 3 May:
Cologne - Coblenz
We leave Cologne early and once we have passed the former capital Bonn we’ll soon be sailing through beautiful countryside. We’ll pass picturesque towns such as Königswinter and Andernach and every now and again you’ll catch a glimpse of a castle or ruin through the trees. We arrive in Coblenz around midday. This strategically positioned trading town is where the Moselle flows into the Rhine. In addition to several shopping streets you will also find various wine houses with pavement cafes in the centre. You can relax here with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine.

The fortresses and castles high above the rivers and the much admired Lorelei will ensure a stunning panorama. We set sail early for the wine town of Boppard where we’ll have a short stop.

During a tour(*) of the centre and the vineyards, you will get to know this lovely town. At the end of the tour you get out in the centre where there is so much to experience. The various Weinstuben in the famous Drosselgasse alleyway and many small shops offer plenty of fun throughout the day. At the end of the afternoon the captain will invite you to the Farewell Dinner.
Saturday 5 May:
Rüdesheim - Linz- Bonn
Even before breakfast we are once again sailing along the Romantic Rhine towards Linz. This town has the nickname the ‘Colourful City’ because of its brightly coloured half-timbered houses. You’ll have time to visit the town this afternoon. At around 21:00 we’ll weigh anchor and join the convoy of ships. While we sail slowly in the twilight towards Bonn you can enjoy a spectacle of fire and light. Villages and castles lit up by torches and fireworks add a magical and romantic atmosphere to the surroundings. You can watch the wonderful fireworks from the sundeck with a glass of champagne and canapes during this impressive voyage. On arrival in Bonn the evening will round off with an extravaganza of music and fireworks which will light up the sky in wonderful colours. After that we sail peacefully towards Arnhem.
