Itinerary

  • Day 1

    Door-to-Door departure, then by coach to our hotel in Einruhr, Germany, for a four-night stay.

  • Day 2 - Free Time or Aachen

    Today, enjoy a morning at leisure to explore your beautiful surroundings. Perhaps take a stroll by the lake or enjoy a coffee on the hotel terrace, as you watch the lake cruisers moor by the hotel.

    This afternoon, we enjoy an optional excursion to the imperial frontier town of Aachen, which boasts some fine examples of medieval architecture, including the superb cathedral and town hall.

    See the Elisenbrunnen fountain, a famous symbol of Aachen’s heritage as a spa town or, to learn about the history of Aachen, why not visit the Centre Charlemagne?

    Delicacies to be found in local bakeries include the spiced gingerbread known as 'Aachener Printen’, or the 'Rice Cake', a light yeast dough filled with sweet and creamy rice and oven baked for a golden yellow appearance.

  • Day 3 - Eifel Hills, Ahr Valley & Ahrweiler

    Join our included excursion as we combine two scenic regions: the forested Eifel Hills, and the pretty Ahr Valley, with its sleepy wine-growing villages.

    The Eifel region was once a volcanic area, though maybe not overly obvious, the circular crater lakes offer a striking tell-tale sign of the hot-tempered beginnings of this stunning area.

    We visit the historic and romantic spa town of Bad Münstereifel, with its half-timbered houses, narrow alleyways and charming town centre, before continuing into the Ahr Valley.

    The vineyards dotted on the slopes of the Ahr provide the grapes for some of the best German red wines. You can taste the deep red wine for yourself on our visit to a local wine cellar (extra cost).

    We also visit the old town of Ahrweiler, which still retains its medieval gates and fortifications.

    We return to our hotel through the beautiful Eifel ‘Lake District’.

    Meals - Breakfast, Dinner

  • Day 4 - Monschau

    Today, we enjoy a full-day, included excursion to Monschau – a photographer’s paradise!

    Half-timbered façades overlook twisting streets, cobbled walkways and quaint market squares make Monschau one of Germany’s most picturesque towns.

    Visit the Rotes Haus (Red House), built in 1760 for the draper Johann Heinrich Scheibler, now open as a museum.

    A local speciality to try whilst in town is the famous Monschau Mustard, if you dare! The mustard mill sells the fiery condiment in many flavours, including honey, green pepper and even Riesling!
