A special trip to a beautiful part of Germany, complete with a river cruise, wine-tasting and a mountain train ride

Day 1: Hop on board our coach, and your friendly driver will take you to Kent, where we will be staying overnight in a pleasant hotel not far from the Eurotunnel so we can take an early train tomorrow and be fresh for our trip into Germany.

Day 2: Sees us continue our journey by taking the Eurotunnel to Calais and then on through France and Belgium and into Germany, arriving at our hotel in Boppard – the lovely Hotel Ebertor – in the late afternoon. There will be time to relax and explore the hotel before dinner

Day 3: After breakfast, in order to help us get our bearings, the owner of our hotel, Vera, will take us on an informative, 1½ hour walking tour of Boppard, a pretty town on the edge of the River Rhine and a UNESCO world heritage site.

This afternoon, back in resort, you have time to explore more of Boppard if you wish. 

Day 4: This morning you’ll enjoy a relaxing cruise on the Rhine from Boppard to Loreley – an impressive and imposing slate cliff towering above the narrowest point of the river. Other wonderful sights include Schönburg Castle at Oberwesel, Pfalz Castle standing in midstream near Kaub, and the romantic wine village of Bacharach with Stahleck Castle.

This afternoon you’ll experience a thrilling ride on the Hunsruck Mountain Railway from Boppard to Emmelshaussen via 2 viaducts, 5 tunnels and wonderful views as the train passes through Boppard’s forests. One of the most delightful mountain railway routes in Germany.

This evening after dinner, an hour’s wine-tasting with local grower Thomas Perll who will tell us all about the local wines of Boppard.

Day 5: Our final day on the Rhine sees us enjoying free time in the medieval town of Oberwesel with its ancient town walls and 16 of its original 21 towers all standing in the shadow of Schönburg Castle. A delightful town to wander and explore at your own pace.

Other points of note here are Siegfried’s Mechanical Music Cabinet - a fascinating museum of automated musical instruments or, you may wish to take the chairlift over the Vineyards to the Neiderwald monument for spectacular views over the Rhine
