DURING YOUR STAY
Day 1 – With comfort stops along the way, we’ll travel to our excellent hotel in Kamp Bornhofen – one of the most beautiful landscapes in Germany.
Day 2 – Today we visit Bernkastel – Kues, these charming twin‐towns are split by the River Mosel and form, what is often referred to as ‘the heart of the beautiful Middle Mosel’. Bernkastel‐Kues is a quintessential medieval German town with many charming half‐timbered houses from the Middle Ages and attractions like the historic market square and the Landshut Castle ruins.
Day 3 – Celebrate Christmas day at leisure. Throughout the day you can enjoy a traditional festive lunch and a candle‐lit Christmas dinner followed by entertainment and dancing this evening.
Day 4 – Shortly after breakfast we’ll take you to Cochem for free time. Explore its small alleyways, which lead to its medieval market places and promenade lined with cafés and a pretty yacht harbour. Afterwards, we travel to Boppard, for free time. Scenically located on a bend in the river, Boppard is one of the Rhine’s prettiest towns. Explore its array of charming half‐timbered buildings, which house snug wine taverns serving Riesling from grapes grown nearby, in some of the Rhine’s steepest vineyards!
Day 5 – Avoid the Boxing Day mayhem back home, and relax as we visit relaxing Rudesheim. Located in the Rhine River gorge, Rudesheim is a picturesque winemaking town (most famous for its production of Asbach Brandy that has been in production since 1892). Complete with narrow cobblestone alleys and timber‐framed taverns, Drosselgasse is Rudesheim’s main street and a stroll along here almost feels like you’ve stepped back in time. This afternoon, we take you to Wiesbaden, for the remainder of the day. In the 19th century the city was planned to be a place of well‐being, luxury and beauty – and that’s exactly what it turned out to be! Today you can enjoy exploring the city’s grand architecture from neo‐classical to Art Nouveau.
Day 6 – We wave goodbye to our wonderful hosts and retrace our footsteps back home.
