The focal point of this sizzling summer adventure is the Rhine in Flames experience - a spectacular event with fireworks and curtains of fire bathing the riverbanks and landmarks in a magical red glow as a flotilla of illuminated boats sail by. The finale of this dazzling pyrotechnic display sees fireworks fired up into the Heavens against a backdrop of inspiring music. We take in the stirring sights and sounds from the comfort of a river cruiser, enjoying a “front row” view along with a delicious two course dinner and a truly electric atmosphere. Our base is the Lamm Hotel in the riverside village of Assmanshausen. Includes outings to Rudesheim, Eltville and Bad Schwalbach Flower Show.
