Experience the Moselle - BASIC

Itinerary

Moselle
Routenkarte Rhein Mosel Erlebnis

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.

The second smallest county seat in Germany is one of the most beautiful cities in the Moselle Valley. Cochem’s long history is revealed during a tour of the old town. You walk past the Capuchin monastery, the parish church of St. Martin and the town hall from the 17th century. Mini busses will take you up 100 metres to the imperial castle, which is one of the most beautiful castles in the region. The tour takes you through the neo-Renaissance and neo-Baroque designed rooms with valuable furnishings.

Cochem und die Reichsburg
€ 29

Is the Reichsburg really a haunted castle? No, not at all. On this tour, families and especially the little ones can discover hidden corners of the castle where only ghosts would go. In a playful way, children learn how life was in castles in the Middle Ages. Follow in the footsteps of a ghost and explore the Reichsburg in a very special way.

Cochem und die Reichsburg

Experience the unforgettable atmosphere of a picturesque old town full of history and culture, as your Rhine cruise takes you along the Moselle. Enjoy award-winning wines from well-known sites – whether in one of the cosy wine bars, in a rustic wine tavern during a wine-tasting session with a winemaker, or during a tour of the steep vineyard slopes.

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.

Trier lies right in the Moselle valley, a region characterised by the typical Moselle vineyards. The city boasts many churches, castles and palaces, plus a wealth of historic monuments – with UNESCO World Heritage status. Enjoy your time in the city, explore the Moselle valley and learn about the history of Rhineland-Palatinate. And as another lovely day draws to a close, you can look forward to the next picturesque port of call.

Trier - one of Germany’s oldest cities - is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The city was founded around 16 BC by Emperor Augustus and you will find numerous architectural monuments from this period. From the ship, you will drive along the Moselle, past old Moselle cranes and monastery complexes, to the oldest bridge in Germany, the Roman Bridge. In the footsteps of the Romans, you will then explore the amphitheatre, the ruins of Barbara thermal baths, as well as the throne room of Emperor Constantine the Great. We will then pass the Palace of the Electorate from the 18th century before reaching the city's main landmark and UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Porta Nigra.

In Trier you can find 8 of the 46 German UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Such a concentration is unique and there is a lot to explore in the old Roman city. If you prefer to stroll around individually, you may take the transfer bus from the berth directly to the city centre, where you will have ample time to discover the beauty of the old Roman city. After a three hour stay we will take you back to the A-ROSA cruise ship in Mehring.

Discover Koblenz during your Rhine cruise. Its history dates back over 2,000 years, making it one of Germany’s oldest cities – and one of its most picturesque, with a wealth of sights and cultural attractions. Marvel at Koblenz’s palaces, stately homes, grand townhouses, narrow lanes and romantic corners. And watch as our A-ROSA ship sails close to the famous Deutsches Eck headland.

When modern rationality mixes with southern German nonchalance, something wonderful is created. Koblenz itself is the best example! The excursion begins with the landmark of the city: the monumental Kaiser Wilhelm monument at the Deutsches Eck (German Corner). The second landmark is the Schängel Fountain, which depicts a cheeky boy. Stroll through the romantic lanes between the Basilica St. Kastor and the Church of Our Lady, both feature impressive Romanesque two-tower façades. You will hear exciting details about the city's history along the way.

If a city tour isn’t quite exciting enough for your children, why not take the whole family to Ehrenbreitstein Fortress, where visitors of all ages can go on journey of discovery. You’ll start by taking a cable car up the hill, which is an experience in itself! Once you’ve arrived, you’ll go on a walking tour that’s geared to young guests and makes exploring and learning fun. There’ll also be plenty for you to enjoy, including breathtaking views from the Fortress across the mouth of the Moselle and the city of Koblenz.
