  • Christmas Eve - Cologne

    Today we visit the majestic city of Cologne on our included excursion. This stylish and attractive city stands on the banks of the romantic River Rhine and you will have free time to explore all the city has to offer. During the Second World War around 90 percent of Cologne’s inner city was reduced to rubble. Today the Rhine metropolis is the fourth largest town and one of the most outstanding travel destinations in Germany and Europe. Cologne cathedral, famous around the world, dominates the panorama of the city and is still today the second highest building in Cologne after the telecommunications tower. The local cuisine, with its many traditional pubs and restaurants, is highly varied and attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. Whether it’s relaxing on the Rhine promenade or drinking a Kolsch in one of the typical breweries – a visit to Cologne is always worthwhile!

  • Boxing Day - Rhine & Moselle Valleys

    Join our included Rhine and Moselle Valleys excursion, as we explore the stunning scenery of these breath-taking valleys. Famous for its picture postcard villages, fairy tale castles and vineyards there is no wonder why the area is considered by many, to offer the most picturesque scenery in Germany.

    We travel first to Boppard, with its lovely Rhineside promenade. Here you will have the opportunity to take an optional lunch cruise along the River Rhine, as you enjoy some wonderful views of the scenery. We then continue along the meandering Moselle Valley to visit the riverside village of Alken, where you can toast the festive season with some local wines during an optional wine tasting at the famous House of Anton Hammes. As well as the wine-tasting you will have the opportunity to purchase the wine should you wish to do so.
