  • Christmas Eve - Ahr Valley Train & Wine Tasting

    Perhaps enjoy an optional excursion into the Ahr Valley on board the Ahrtalbahn. We board the train not far from our hotel, which will then take you on a journey through narrow valleys past stunning scenery. We visit the old town of Ahrweiler which still retains its medieval gates and fortifications. The pedestrian streets, surrounded by half-timbered houses, are easy to explore on foot. We continue to Mayschoss by train, famous for producing some of the finest red wines in Germany. You will have the chance to taste the dark red wine for yourself on our visit to a local wine cellar, where a cold platter lunch will be served. Tonight, we enjoy our German-style Christmas with a 5-course candlelit dinner.

  • Christmas Day - Remagen

    Happy Christmas!

    Morning included guided historical walk of Remagen with a mug of mulled wine. The small town of Remagen is famous for its bridge that fell into American hands in 1945 providing them with a passage across the Rhine, but then only days later the bridge collapsed under the sheer weight of their armoured vehicles. Today stands a Peace Museum within the remaining towers (closed in winter). Enjoy Christmas lunch.

    Tonight, we enjoy a Christmas party with live band and festive buffet.

    Meals - Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

  • Boxing Day - Vulkan Express

    Included excursion, as we discover the Eifel region on board the Vulkan Express, a narrow gauge railway. The train will take you through one of the most scenic valleys of the Rhine from the half-timbered station at Burgbrohl to Engeln. The carriages are pulled by steam and diesel locomotives through the Brohl Valley where you will see volcanic formations, stone viaducts, castles and a monastery as you meander through the countryside.
