Day 5 - Rudesheim & The Rhine Gorge
You have free time here this morning to explore Koblenz.
This afternoon includes one of the highlights of the tour as we
pass through the glorious Rhine Gorge, one of the most beautiful
sections of the river and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Sheer river
banks rise up, towering over the river below, covered in deep
forests and miles of green vineyards, lending an almost ethereal
feel to the waterway. We enjoy a commentary from our knowledgeable
Cruise Director during this passage.
Our lunch today sees us tuck into a wonderful themed buffet with
a suckling pig as the striking centrepiece, and several smaller
dishes from this part of the world making up the rest of the
offerings. Weather permitting we'll enjoy our lunch on the sun deck
as we take in the majesty of the glorious Rhine Gorge.
This evening we sail to the classic German town of
Rüdesheim am Rhein, known for its formidable wine production
especially of the dry Riesling variety.
