Itinerary

Moselle
Route of the river cruise on the rhine

We will set off on our exciting Rhine cruise from here, heading for the northern or the southern Rhine. But you shouldn’t miss out on the opportunity to explore this cathedral city, with its wealth of monuments and attractions. The best way is to arrive the day before your cruise departs, so that you can relax – or simply extend your stay in Cologne after the cruise has ended.

{f:if(condition: '', then: ')}

Cochem, on the bank of the Moselle, is another port of call on your Rhine cruise, which will take you onto the Moselle. The entire Moselle region around Cochem is a real sight to behold. The town’s landmark is undoubtedly the famous Reichsburg, a splendid castle that towers above the river. But did you know that the West German government had a secret bunker built here for its federal bank? Strange, but true! And you’ll have the opportunity to visit it during your river cruise.

Mini busses will take you up 100 metres to the imperial castle, which is one of the most beautiful castles in the region.

Bernkastel-Kues has been blessed twice: once with fertile vineyards and once by perhaps the most unique ensemble of medieval half-timbered buildings. Especially famous for the Spitzhäuschen, which has been balancing on a foundation that appears to be much too narrow since the beginning of the 15th century. It is a true wonder that it has not fallen over yet! The Renaissance city hall, built in 1608, and the Michaela fountain in the market square are just as remarkable as the parish church of St. Michael with its more than 600-year-old tower.

The breath-taking cable car ride across the Rhine and up to the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress should not be missed: Behind you the roofs of Koblenz, below you the broad river and in front of you the gigantic fortress Ehrenbreitstein. This adjective is by no means an exaggeration, as you will be entering the second largest preserved fortress in Europe. Prussian King Friedrich Wilhelm III ordered the construction as part of an anti-French military line. Up to 6,500 craftsmen and day labourers were employed. The mighty fortress rises 118 metres above the Rhine and was once the core of the fortification around Koblenz. Together with the Deutsches Eck (German Corner), it forms the northern gateway to the UNESCO World Heritage Upper Middle Rhine Valley. Afterwards we will walk through the old town back to the ship.
