Drive on the left bank of the Rhine river passing Bingen and beautiful scenery up to Bacharach with a short stop en route to visit one of the local castles perched on the hills.
From there you embark for a 1 hour river cruise bringing you to Sankt Goarshausen on the other bank and where we meet again.
This stretch of the Rhine Valley is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and comprises romantic villages, pretty vineyards and medieval castles that frame the spectacular River Rhine in central Germany.
Our drive on the road will pass the world famous Loreley rocks and shortly before arriving in Rüdesheim we visit the Niederwalddenkmal or the "Germania" memorial offering splendid views from above the valley. Walk through the "Drosselgasse" and maybe taste the "Rüdesheimer cafe" one of the local specialties, enjoy a wine tasting or some shopping at the Käthe Wohlfahrt Christmas shop before returning to the Airport/Hotel.
