Weave to the very heart of Germany on the timeless course of the Moselle, Main and Rhine rivers, passing through iconic heritage towns and remarkable landscapes on an unforgettable 8-day journey from west to east. Sample pristine heritage as you travel from Bernkastel to Nuremberg on these three Germanic passageways, marvelling at the incredible vistas of the Moselle Valley and the Rhine Gorge along the way. Experience the enchanting medieval history of Bavaria in Miltenberg and Bamberg, and savour the time-honoured and beloved viticulture of the Moselle in Cochem and Bernkastel. This is a journey of beauty, heritage and tradition, and one that reveals the Germany of your imagination.

Begin in Bernkastel, an ancient town on the banks of the Moselle River. As part of a guided walking tour, you’ll stroll through the medieval marketplace and see the ruins of the town’s medieval gates. As a centre of viticulture, you can savour an exclusive EmeraldPLUS wine tasting in Bernkastel, while those feeling more active can enjoy a guided bike tour through the surrounding valley. From here, we travel to Cochem, where you’ll revel in the romanticism of Reichsburg Castle before travelling on to Koblenz, a beautiful city with fascinating ties to WWII. This afternoon, cruise through the fabled Rhine Gorge on your way to Miltenberg and Wertheim, where you can enjoy a guided hike or see more of the village’s charming half-timbered Old Town. The UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Würzburg and Bamberg are next, and each offers a feast of cultural treasures, from the Bishops’ Residenz to Bamberg Cathedral. Cruising to Nuremberg on the Main-Danube canal, it’s time to say ‘Auf Wiedersehen’ to your fellow guests as you begin your journey home.
