The Moselle Cruise, November 13th – 20th

from £1,400.00

November 13th – 20th

The Moselle – one of the most picturesque rivers in Europe. It twists and turns its way between the Trier and Koblenz along one of Germany’s most beautiful river valleys. Today its hillsides are covered by terraced vineyards where some of the best Rieslings grow and numerous castles dominate the hilltops above wine villages below.

Our cruise leaves Cologne on November 13, returning eight days later. It visits Koblenz, Cochem, Schweich, Remich, Bernkastel, Rudesheim and back. Itis that time of year when autumn colours transform the landscape; temperatures are pleasant and tourist crowns are beginning to reduce.

We have allocated more than 30 main deck cabins for single passengers with no single supplement.

The entertainment will be of the highest order and for those who want to sing, there is an opportunity to rehearse and present a semi-staged production of Iolanthe following the Gala Dinner.
