Dec 30 - Little Switzerland
This morning we travel along the Moselle Valley to Remich, which boasts a charming town centre and a tree-lined promenade along the banks of the Moselle River. Remich is also known for its wine and great historic past. Once called ‘Remacum’, during ancient times the area became popular with fishermen and sailors. Its many beautiful sights include St Nicolas gate which was built in honour of the fishermen, St Cunibert Street, which was the birthplace of the archbishop of Cologne in the 17th century, and there are many lovely squares, fountains and churches throughout the town. After time at leisure in Remich, we travel to ‘Little Switzerland’, visiting the pretty medieval town of Echternach which is nestled in the meandering valley of the Sauer River. Echternach is an abbey town and is the oldest city in Luxembourg with stunning ancient city walls, marketplace and Gothic town houses. There is lots to see and do in the area including the museum, walking trails, beautiful buildings and places to enjoy local dishes.

New Year's Day - Free Time or Trier
Happy New Year! After brunch join our optional excursion into neighbouring Germany and to Trier, Germany’s oldest city. Emperor Augustus founded Trier as a Roman colony in 16 B.C. It then became the favoured residence of several Roman emperors and was even known as ‘Roma Secunda’, the second Rome. The Cathedral of Trier is one of the main sights of the city. It was originally built by Constantine the Great, the first Christian Roman Emperor, and is the oldest church in Germany. It houses great works of art as well as the Holy Robe, a garment said to have been worn by Jesus when he was crucified. You can see the impressive Porta Nigra, which once formed part of the city's Roman Walls as well as many other attractions.
