Autumn Colours & River of Wine

MV Virginia (Trans Riverline)

6 Days Full Board River Cruise

Highlights: • Rüdesheim • Koblenz • Cologne • Wine Festival in Boppard • Fabulous cruising on the Rhine

Autumn is one of the best times to visit the Rhine Valley area, when the trees and vineyards turn to red and gold and the weather is usually still quite mild. This lovely river cruise takes you to the most scenic section of the River Rhine, through the spectacular Rhine Gorge, passing attractive riverbank villages and sloped hillsides. It also coincides with the wine festival in Boppard, one of the most important events of the Rhineland calendar as wine growers delight in inviting all to celebrate the harvest of the vines as the centre of Boppard comes alive with wine stalls and music.

Your Itinerary

DAY 1: From local joining points we cross to Calais and onwards to join the Virginia in Cologne.

DAY 2: This morning we sail upstream, passing the former West German capital of Bonn, to reach Andernach. From here we take a coach excursion to Koblenz, at the confluence of the rivers Rhine & Moselle.

DAY 3: A full day cruising today, departing before breakfast, as we pass through the spectacular Rhine Gorge and by the famous Loreley Rock, to reach the ever-popular tourist centre of Rüdesheim, well known for its bustling Drosselgasse - a narrow lane of wine taverns.

DAY 4: This morning we cruise back downstream to pretty Boppard - the 'Jewel of the Rhine'. Here the annual Boppard Wine Festival is taking place with local wine growers celebrating the harvest amid one of the largest wine producing regions of the Rhineland. Enjoy the atmosphere in the market square as the wine flows and the music plays at one of the key events in the town’s calendar.

DAY 5: Departing from Boppard after breakfast we continue along the Rhine to return to Cologne where the afternoon is free to explore at leisure.
