Rhine Discovery St. Goar 2023

Itinerary

Rhine Cruise

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: ')}

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.

Founded in 1794, the Deinhard house in Germany stands for sparkling wine. This 200-year tradition has its origins in the Koblenz headquarters in the middle of the unique cultural landscape between the Middle Rhine and the Moselle. Since last year, the city of Koblenz has turned it into a sparkling wine museum. Your A-ROSA host will take you to this historic headquarters on a small train. Here you will get to know the tradition of sparkling wine at close quarters and embark on an exciting journey back in time in the cellar museum. The hearts of wine and sparkling wine lovers beat faster here. The soul of wine culture can be felt in every part of the vault. Learn all about the tradition of sparkling wine production and, of course, taste one or two fine wines. The little train will then take you back to the ship.
