Today is New Year's Eve and our excursion is a journey on the Vulkan Express, a narrow-gauge diesel train which winds its way up across bridges and viaducts from the Rhine Valley at Brohl to Engeln. Later tonight, to call in the new year, we sit down to a spectacular 5-course gala dinner to celebrate. Afterwards, you may wish to join the festivities in town.
On New Year's Day you have the full day to explore Koblenz at your own pace.
Today we head out into the German countryside to pay a visit to two charming towns near the banks of the mighty Rhine. Our first port of call is pretty Cochem, whose elegant townhouses are watched over by an imperial castle.
