Enjoy a free day wondering through the lovely atmospheric town, with ancient walls, and idyllic halftimbered houses, narrow streets and cobblestones.
A stunning excursion today as we enjoy the scenery of the Eifel Mountains travelling to the Moselle River. We visit the beautiful town of Cochem, the most romantic part of the Valley where the river curves between the Eifel and the Hunsruck. On arrival we board an hour’s cruise taking in the beautiful scenery before enjoying free time in this delightful town.
A shorter trip today as we visit the City of Aachen, dominated by its magnificent cathedral and offering a cosmopolitan welcome. Be sure to visit the Charlemagne Route which is dotted with old buildings, the Town Hall dates back to the 14th Century and for something a little different why not try the Newspaper Museum, with over 200,000 Copies of Newspapers from all over the World.
Leaving Germany behind, we head into Holland today, we’ll enjoy a morning stop in Maastricht, and enjoy our lunch stop in lovely Breda before heading off to Rotterdam to check in for our overnight ferry back to Hull.
We make the short journey back from Hull arriving home refreshed around lunchtime.
