About your holiday
It’s been more than 2,000 years since the Romans discovered the mineral-rich and fertile German landscape was perfect for growing grapes and laid the foundations for the vineyards which cover a quarter of a million acres of the country today.
Our expert cruise creators have a nose for picking out the best annual celebrations in atmospheric towns and villages along the riverbanks of the Middle Rhine and Moselle – two of the most prominent among the 13 official wine-growing regions in Germany. In addition to enjoying these Unique Experiences, they have also arranged some on-board tastings for you too! In addition to an abundance of wine, this full-bodied cruise promises to be packed with music, food and laughter, plus plenty of local pageantry and tradition.
Set sail from Amsterdam and enjoy an included tour of Dusseldorf’s famous Old Town, packed with hostelries for you to explore, you’ll spend time in Koblenz, where the two stately rivers converge, and moor in Oberwesel to enjoy the spectacular Rhine in Flames celebrations and annual wine festival the following day. Explore the pretty wine towns of Bingen, Winningen, Alken and Cochem before joining the celebrations at Traben-Trarbach’s annual festival. Moor in Piesport and enjoy an included tour of historic Trier, where Germany’s wine heritage began, to round-off this voyage of a lifetime...
