UNESCO site, Rhine cruise and castle tour Included!


Leave the city behind for an unforgettable day of River Rhine sightseeing! 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.

This is Germany's landscape at its most dramatic - muscular forested hillsides alternate with craggy cliffs and nearly-vertical terraced vineyards. Idyllic villages appear around each bend, their neat half-timbered houses and Gothic church steeples seemingly plucked from the world of fairy tales.

See majestic Rhineland scenery, bearing testament to its UNESCO World Heritage status
Enjoy a Rhine River cruise on a steamer boat (available 17 Mar - 8 Oct)
