Holiday Itinerary

Holiday Itinerary

 

Enjoy the wonderful scenery as we travel through the Rhine Valley to our hotel in historic Koblenz, set at the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle Rivers. From here we’ll also have a day exploring the beautiful Moselle Valley, with a wine tasting in the pretty half-timbered river town of Cochem. On Saturday afternoon we head off for a highlight of our break, to join our river cruise trip for the spectacular Rhine in Flames extravaganza. See fire, water and light combine as the dazzling displays of fireworks illuminate the night sky above the Rhine. This stunning pyrotechnic display is an experience not to be missed, which has enthralled visitors in their thousands for more than 50 years.

We leave the Rhine Valley behind us as we head to the pretty village of Oberharmersbach in the Black Forest for two nights, from where we will follow the famous wine route into Alsace, enjoying a tour and tasting on the way.
