Cologne to Cologne
5 night Rhine and Moselle

 

It is served in the best restaurants in the world: Riesling from the Moselle. And what makes this wine so good is the sunny, mild climate on the Moselle, the location on the steep slope and perhaps also the view of the small river and the flourishing villages. To the people on the Moselle, the area seems to be a modern-day one: Here everything goes its way calmly, so that a wonderful feeling of deceleration comes to the travellers all by itself. Not only with a glass of wine.

Detailed Itinerary:


Day 1: Cologne, Germany    (Embarkation)

Cologne, the old Cathedral city, is also one of the most important traffic hubs and commercial centres in Germany, with world famous trade fairs and a busy shipping traffic. Cologne developed out of a Roman colony and looks back on a history of more than 2000 years. In the Middle Ages it was one of the leading towns in Germany. The Second World War destroyed most of the inner city; these parts were rebuilt in a modern style. The landmark and emblem of the city is the Cathedral, a masterpiece of High Gothic architecture and one of the largest cathedrals in Europe. Other tourist attractions are the town hall, the Malakoff Tower, the St Martin Church and the old abbey.

Day 2: Cochem

Even though it is Germany’s second-smallest district administrative centre, Cochem can look back on a long history, witnessed by its majestic Imperial Castle and the ruins of the Winneburg, each of which overlooks the town from its own small hill. Cochem is also home to the Pestkapelle (Plague Chapel) and the Kapelle zu den drei Kreuzen (Chapel of the Three Crosses). While these two places of worship are by no means huge, their understated elegance and beautiful location make them well worth a visit.

Day 3: Bernkastel-Kues

The twin town of Bernkastel-Kues is located at a wide bend in the Mosel. Kues and Bernkastel have been united since 1905 and joined with a bridge. The area has been settled for a very long time; a village from the Early Stone Age was discovered in Kues, the oldest known settlement along the Mosel. The city’s tourist attractions include the beautiful market square with the town hall, the St Michael fountain, the half-timbered houses from the 16th and 17th centuries and the parish church of St Michael.

Day 4: Mehring (Trier)

Trier lies right in the Moselle valley, a region characterised by the typical Moselle vineyards. The city boasts many churches, castles and palaces, plus a wealth of historic monuments – with UNESCO World Heritage status. Enjoy your time in the city, explore the Moselle valley and learn about the history of Rhineland-Palatinate. And as another lovely day draws to a close, you can look forward to the next picturesque port of call.

Day 5: Koblenz

Discover Koblenz during your Rhine cruise. Its history dates back over 2,000 years, making it one of Germany’s oldest cities – and one of its most picturesque, with a wealth of sights and cultural attractions. Marvel at Koblenz’s palaces, stately homes, grand townhouses, narrow lanes and romantic corners. And watch as our A-ROSA ship sails close to the famous Deutsches Eck headland.

Day 6: Cologne (Disembarkation)

Your cruise comes to an end this morning as you disembark in Cologne after breakfast.
