The best scenery on the Rhine is between Rüdesheim and Koblenz Gorge. We will drive down the one side by the legendary Lorelei Rock and St Goarshausen, Cross the river to Koblenz, a city with a 2,000 year history, and see the ‘Deutsches Eck’, the point at which the Mosel joins the Rhine and the landmark ‘Schängel’ fountain. Returning on the other side, Boppard and St Goar are especially attractive.

Day 4 Wednesday

More vineyards as we travel via Mainz and Worms to Heidelberg. This beautiful university city is renowned for its ancient inns, some in the same family for hundreds of years, its pleasant promenades along the River Neckar, and the Castle on a high ridge (accessible by funicular) affording fine views.

B=Breakfast, D=Dinner

Unquestionably the most popular holiday town on the Rhine is Rüdesheim, which incorporates Assmannshausen alongside the river. Lively entertainment, wine cellars, shops, museums, vineyards and much more will take up your time, as well as the ever-changing scene of barges, ferries and cruise ships on one of Europe’s busiest waterways. Don’t miss the ride, by chairlift/gondola, over the vineyards to the National Monument for a wonderful view of it all.
