ITINERARY

Sunday

After door to door collection we make our way to Hull to join our P&O cruise ferry for our overnight sail to Rotterdam with dinner and breakfast.

Monday

Travel to the beautiful old town of Aachen with time for lunch (not included) before continuing on to the Rhine Valley and our resort of Rudesheim and the Lindenwirt Hotel, a welcome glass of wine is served on arrival before dinner in the hotel.

Tuesday

Today, we embark on a 2.5 hour cruise from Rudesheim to ‘the pearl of the Rhine’ Boppard, taking in the stunning views whilst enjoying a Bergisch waffle and hot drink. We arrive in Boppard, which lies on a huge bend of the river backed by thickly wooded hills, in the early afternoon for free time at leisure. The promenade invites a stroll and there are many shops, wine tasting and quaint streets to explore as well as a Roman Fort, 12th century St Severus Church, 14th century Carmelite Church, the baroque Church of St Parkratius and the Electoral Castle of Boppard. We drive back to the hotel in time for dinner.

Wednesday

We spend the day at leisure. You could take the cable car up to the Niederwald Memorial, enjoying the amazing views and exploring the famous Drosselgasse area in the heart of Rudesheim’s old town, sampling a glass of wine along the way! For the more adventurous, why not take the train to Cologne or Koblenz?

Thursday

This morning we head to the famous medieval city of Heidelberg. This outstanding city boasts the oldest (and one of the finest) universities in the whole of Germany. To help us get our bearings we will have a 1.5 hour guided walking tour of the city before making our way to the iconic castle where we will enjoy a guided ‘Classical Tour’ before concluding the day with some wine tasting and return journey on the funicular cable car.

Friday

We leave Rudesheim after breakfast and travel north along Rhine Valley. We stop for lunch (not included) in northern Germany before arriving in Rotterdam where we take the overnight P&O cruise ferry, with dinner and breakfast, to Hull.

Saturday

We leave Hull and return home to Lancashire where taxis will be waiting to take you to your front door.
