Itinerary

  • Dec 29

    Local departure by coach, then to Remagen, Germany for four nights at the 3-star Hotel Pinger.

  • Dec 30 - Ahr Valley

    Join our optional excursion into the Ahr Valley on board the Ahrtalbahn. We board the train not far from our hotel which will take you on a journey through narrow valleys past stunning scenery. We make a visit to romantic Altenahr, whose centre is dominated by the scattered ruins of the 12C castle. We continue to Mayschoss, famous for producing some of the finest red wines in Germany. You will get chance to taste the dark red wine for yourself on our visit to a local wine cellar. Our next stop is Ahrweiler which still retains its medieval gates and fortifications. The pedestrian streets, surrounded by half-timbered houses, are easy to explore on foot.
