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, which featured in several battles throughout the Second World War, the museum was opened in 1980. Discover more about the bridge's history and that of the nearby US prisoner of war camp, known as the Golden Mile. This afternoon, you're free to explore on your own.

Day 3 - Altenahr & Mayschoss

Take the train to Altenahr today, an ancient village nestled in a valley and filled with fairytale architecture.

You have free time here to stroll through the winding streets, lined with classic half-timbered buildings. Continue by rail to Mayschoss, a renowned wine town surrounded by endless vineyards. We enjoy a wine tasting, after which you have the option to take a horse-drawn carriage ride (payable locally) - a truly enchanting way to see more of the sights. Or, head out and get to know the town on your own. After dinner back at the hotel this evening, there's a walking tour of Remagen that you're free to join.

Day 4 - Free day in 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, Boppard 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 over 100 miles of walking trails which wind through the stunning surrounding landscapes.

Day 5 - The Rhine Gorge

Today's excursion takes you by rail to St Goar, where you board a riverboat and cruise through the iconic Rhine Gorge. One of the most scenic sights along the river, the Rhine Gorge is dominated by the legendary Lorelei Rock, a striking sight which rises up out of the water. Stop at Rüdesheim, where half-timbered medieval houses, narrow streets, and old inns give the town a flavour of the Middle Ages, before railing back to Remagen.

Includes
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Rhine Valley
Day 6 - Cochem

Take the train to Cochem, on the banks of the Moselle River. You have free time to explore here. The town is dominated by a 1,000 year old castle, and is also known for its 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 also celebrated for its wines, with its local Moselle famous across Germany.

Excellent holiday, very well organised, the trips were well thought out and added to the experience. The hotel was a little tired and in need of updating, but food and staff were of a high standard. The only downside’s were no air conditioning in hotel rooms we were there during the heat wave. In your booklet it clearly states air conditioning in bedrooms. The hotel opposite train station so very noisy during the night.

Hotel management were unhelpful distant and on occasion rude to all the members of our group. From 8.45pm every 15 mins and all through the night freight trains with 30 carriages thundered through the station which was 10 yards from the hotel. The temperature was 28 degrees while we were there and we were refused tap water. The food was boring .

All went well. There were some changes enforced by end of season closures and the Rhine being low on water, but adaptions were quickly made by the tour Manager so there enjoyment was not affected. Hotel was good, food good and very friendly staff.
