Cochem Imperial Castle

Duration 10 Days
Available July 2022

Relax aboard your floating hotel as you discover the quaint riverside settlements that hug the banks of the Rhine and Moselle.

Highlights include Andernach, a little gem that is home to the world’s highest cold water spouting geyser as well as medieval fortifications such as the Round Tower and castle ruins with a well preserved keep.

We sail on to Cochem where snaking streets of wine taverns are tucked below imposing Reichsburg Castle and bustling Boppard with its chairlift that gently glides visitors up to a spectacular viewpoint.

Rudesheim boasts historical treasures while ancient Koblenz nestles at the confluence of the rivers, overlooked by a mighty statue of Kaiser Wilhelm
