Legends of the Rhine and Main Itinerary

Day 1 - UK – Mainz (Germany)

Fly from a choice of UK regional airports to Frankfurt and transfer to Mainz to board your ship. Meet your captain and crew. (D)

Day 2 - Wiesbaden

Famous for its mineral springs dating since Roman times, Wiesbaden resembles a 19th-century resort. This morning our guided tour will pass by the Russian Chapel (Russian Orthodox) and you can enjoy the magnificent view over the city and Rhine valley. We will see some fine examples of Wilhemine Architecture (UNESCO Heritage) on the way to the Kochbrunnen where you can take a sip of hot water. The walking tour will take us to the Old Town, the Castle and the Kurhaus where we will board the coaches for the ride back to Wiesbaden. (B,L,D)

Day 3 - Rudesheim

Visit Eberbach Abbey, one of the best-preserved medieval monasteries in the Rheingau Region. Founded in 1136 by St. Bernard of Clairvaux (Burgundy) the monastery was one of the most active in Germany, and also boasted the largest vineyards in medieval Germany. As a major filming location of the film In the Name of the Rose and the Games of Thrones TV series, Eberbach deserves a visit. Alternatively, enjoy a hike up the Niederwalddenkmal - a monument located in the Niederwald, near Rüdesheim am Rhein in Hesse, Germany. There is an optional tour to the Asbach Distillery. (B,L,D)

Day 4 - Koblenz - Cochem

Marksburg Castle has a fairytale appearance, not unlike something found in a story from Brothers Grimm. There is the chance to join a guided hike in Koblenz. After dinner, enjoy a visit to the Imperial Castle in Cochem which stands majestically over the Mosel River valley. Soaring over Cochem, this medieval castle was heavily damaged while in the possession of the electoral princes of Trier. However, it was restored in the neo-gothic style associated with German castle romanticism in the 19th century. (B,L,D)

Day 5 - Cochem

Enjoy the enchanting town of Cochem. In the morning, you will have a guided walk through the numerous well-preserved sites of this quaint town, including the remains of the historic town wall with its old fortifications, the Town Hall and its many other gems, or join the guided bike tour. (B,L,D)

Day 6 - Trier

In southwest Germany, near the Luxembourg border, the city of Trier is a hidden treasure often called the Rome of the North. During your guided tour, explore the ruins of the ancient city baths and the Porta Nigra, the best-preserved Roman city gate north of the Alps. (B,L,D)

Day 7 - Bernkastel

Bernkastel dates back to 3000BC and lies on the banks of the Moselle River. Enjoy a morning walking tour of Bernkastel with its timber-framed houses and medieval centre. Perhaps take the wine tasting excursion or join the active bike ride. (B,L,D)

Day 8 - Bernkastel - UK

After breakfast you will disembark your ship and transfer to Frankfurt airport for your return flight to the UK (B)
