The Spectacular Rhine in Flames

Highlights: Rhine in Flames procession, Koblenz, Moselle Valley, Cochem, Boppard, Rhine Gorge, Andernach

Experience the amazing spectacle of the Rhine in Flames as the riverbanks erupt in a feast of colour and celebration. You’ll have a privileged ringside seat aboard your floating hotel as it cruises amid the spectacular flotilla of vessels taking part in this most famous of Rhineland events. You’ll also enjoy the scenic wonders of the mighty River Rhine, one of the world’s most awe-inspiring rivers, as it carves its way through spectacular mountain gorges with vineyards clinging impossibly to the slopes.

Hilltop castles look down from above, and pretty, flower-decked riverside towns are a delight to explore. And there’s no finer place to take all this in than onboard the Prinses Christina - effortlessly gliding over the water as the scenery changes with every bend in the river. It’s an experience not to be missed!.

Cruise Itinerary

Day 1 - We head for the Channel and on into Germany and to Rüdesheim in time for a late supper on board.

Day 2 - A morning cruise today takes us through the incredible Rhine Gorge and passing embattled castles and attractive shoreside villages, to reach Boppard - known as the 'Pearl of the Rhine'. The remainder of the day is free to explore this charming riverside town, well-known for its local wines.

Day 3 - This morning a short cruise to Koblenz at the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle rivers with the day free to explore. The 'Old Town', re-built after World War II is certainly worth a visit. This evening we depart Koblenz to join the Rhine in Flames procession of vessels cruising downstream. A spectacular fireworks display from the riverbanks illuminates the river at five spots between Linz and the finale in Bonn.

Day 4 - Today we cruise from Bonn to reach the old Roman town of Andernach. From here we travel by coach for a scenic tour of the Eifel Mountains, where the gently rolling hills and forests blend with the traditional picture-postcard villages.

Day 5 - This morning we cruise onto the River Moselle to Winningen. From here we enjoy a coach excursion through picturesque wine villages to the favourite tourist centre of Cochem, with its colourful riverside promenade and cobbled alleyways and squares.

Day 6 - Disembarking after breakfast we return to Calais for our Channel crossing and homeward bound.
