Itinerary

Day 1 - London & Remagen

Meet at London St Pancras and board the Eurostar to Brussels. Continue via Cologne to Remagen, a charming town on the banks of the Rhine and famous for its railroad bridge's involvement in WW2. You spend the next seven nights at the Hotel Pinger, enjoying wonderful, all inclusive hospitality.

Includes
  • Dinner
Day 2 - Remagen and the Peace Museum

Explore Remagen with a visit to the Peace Museum, located in the towers of the town's famous bridge. The bridge has a rich history; it was featured in several battles throughout the Second World War before the fascinating museum was opened in 1980. Immerse yourself in the bridge's history, as well as that of the nearby US prisoner of war camp, known as the Golden Mile, during your time here. After dinner join the group on a walking tour of Remagen, learning more about the town and its rich history.

Includes
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 4 - Remagen

Enjoy a free day to explore more of your surroundings at your own pace. You may wish to take the train to nearby Boppard with your included VRM card. Once a Roman fort, the town has earned UNESCO World Heritage status for its history and outstanding natural beauty. Here, you could admire the 12th-century church, notable for its twin spires and stained-glass windows, or the remains of the original Roman city wall. This is also an ideal destination for those who love walking. Nearby, there are miles of walking trails which wind through the stunning surrounding landscapes.

Includes
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 5 - The Rhine Gorge

Today takes you by rail to St Goar, where you board a riverboat for a scenic cruise along the iconic Rhine Gorge. One of the most spectacular sights along the Rhine, this striking stretch of water is dominated by the legendary Lorelei Rock, a dramatic rock which rises up out of the water. You pause at Rüdesheim, a quintessentially German town where half-timbered medieval houses, narrow streets, and old inns give a flavour of the Middle Ages. Enjoy time to take in the old-world charms. Be sure to stroll along the world-famous Drösselgasse, a vibrant street in the heart of the Old Town lined with quirky pubs, cafés, and wine cellars, before taking the train back to Remagen.

Includes
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 6 - Cochem

Take the train to Cochem, on the banks of the Moselle River, where you have some free time to look around. The town is known for its historic castle and Old Quarter, where you'll find preserved sections of the town walls and three of the wall's gates. Like many towns in the area, Cochem is celebrated for its wines, with its local Moselle famous across Germany. Perhaps relax in one of the pastel-hued bars or restaurants lining the river, and sample some of this excellent wine for yourself.

Includes
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 7 - Remagen

You have another free day. Perhaps stroll along the river in Remagen, soaking up the natural scenic beauty of the town. Or further afield, you could head to Koblenz. Set at the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle Rivers and considered the historic gateway to the terraced vineyards and ruined castles of the Rhine, there's plenty to occupy yourself with here.

Includes
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 8 - London

After breakfast, you take the train to Cologne, where you change for the service to Brussels. From here, join the Eurostar direct to London St Pancras.

Holiday basically enjoyable with an excellent manager but those at the front of the hotel suffered from train noise and station construction work, the hotel's rooms are adequate but basic whilst the dinners lacked imagination and were, to our taste, far too salty.

Hotel opposite the railway station in Remagen with no air conditioning, had to leave windows wide open each night with long noisy cargo trains going through regulary. Also the railway station is having major works carried out overnight. A good nights sleep almost impossible ear defenders did not help. Otherwise quite a decent holiday for the price.

The local train journeys were by using Gäste-Tickets which gives unlimited rides over a large area for €9 over a month. Consequently, they were packed, standing room only. Even on our return trip home the train from Cologne to Brussels where we had seats booked were so crowded because the previous train was cancelled, that we could not even get onto our booked coach to stand up in. I am not blaming the poor tour guide who did all her best for us, and feel Train Discoveries really dropped her in it. We had some people with wheeled Zimmer frames who really needed help. Apart from that the hotel and scenery was lovely!
