Our trip begins with direct travel to the Mosel Valley through some of the country’s most picturesque landscapes and most productive wine regions. The natural beauty of the valley combined with the festively lit timbered houses and the narrow winding streets, thoughtfully decorated with seasonal ornaments give this historic village a Christmas fairy tale feel that will charm and delight you. Stroll through the Christmas market, following the scent of hot mulled wine and sample this tasty tradition for yourself, right in the heart of the Moselle wine country. Experience first-hand how Christmas is celebrated here before we ascend to the beautiful decorated Castle Burg Reichsburg for an evening of festivities.
Castle Burg Reichsburg is over 1000 years old and proclaimed by local lore to be the original "Sleeping Beauty" castle. After a castle tour with a local guide (included) we will dig into a medieval-style dinner (included) in the Knight’s Dining Hall. This tasty regional meal features rye bread with schmaltz spread, beef soup, a turkey leg, flat bread, cheese, nuts and grapes. Wine will be served in a souvenir wine mug (beer and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase). We will be entertained throughout the meal with bawdy stories about medieval table manners and enjoy live entertainment before the Knight’s Games begin after dinner.
