The banks of the Rhine and Moselle are lands of legends where ancient castles crown the hillsides and vineyards cling to the slopes above enchanting riverside towns. Flying to Cologne, you will soon be onboard the Prinses Christina for your seven night adventure. Each morning, enjoy a relaxing cruise followed by an afternoon at leisure to enjoy the destination of the day at your own pace.

Monday:We embark on our river cruise, sailing past bonny Bonn and into the Rhine Valley with its vineyards, romantic castles and colourful villages studding its banks. We arrive at the old Roman town of Andernach.
Tuesday:We leave the Rhine at Koblenz and sail along the Moselle to Cochem, a traditional German village where history and folklore are woven into every alleyway and snaking streets of wine taverns nestle beneath storybook Reichsburg Castle.
Wednesday:We rejoin the Rhine and glide on to the traditional tourist town of Boppard.
