  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The morning will be dedicated to an excursion to Eltz Castle. Surrounded by a lush forest lining a deep valley, Eltz Castle looks like it came straight out of Game of Thrones. The interior is just as extraordinary as its exterior and spans 850 years of architecture and culture.

We'll spend the afternoon cruising towards Koblenz, arriving in the afternoon. Join us for an excursion: Koblenz and the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress. Situated at the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle Rivers, Koblence is a great city to stroll through.

Day 4: Koblenz | Mainz | Romantic Rhine Valley

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
We’ll spend the day cruising on the Rhine River. This remarkable route meanders between sheer rocks as it passes picturesque vineyards and fortified castles perched high above the water. The legendary rock of the Lorelei is just one of the high points we’ll see. A subject of many literary works and poems, the rock is most famously associated with the myth of a beautiful maiden who threw herself from its heights in despair, only to be transformed into a siren who lures fishermen to their deaths. We’ll pass famous German cities dotting the river, including Mainz, Mannheim, and Speyer. Tonight is our festive gala evening.

The trip was terrific with great planning on your part. Most of the adventures were not mainstream and somewhat off the beaten path which made it especially enjoyable!! We felt taken care of and you all were readily available to respond to questions and issues. I would highly recommend your company and friends have already expressed interest based on our pictures and excitement.
