Meticulous attention to detail is evident throughout - from the selection of the linens, to the fresh fruit and flowers in each suite.  The warm, elegant teak interiors, subtle color schemes and pleasant furnishings invite you to relax and enjoy.

A morning cruise takes us from Trier to the peaceful village of Trittenheim. Take a short drive to the nearby village of Piesport, where abundant remains of the Celtic times may be found.
