Our Thanksgiving day adventure begins with a visit to one of the oldest Christmas Markets along the Moselle River in Bernkastel- Kues. The charm and unique atmosphere of this historical city will trigger your holiday spirit in no time. More than 40 festively decorated stalls filled with high-end artisanship, delicious gingerbread and famous Moselle Wine in hot steaming mugs send out for a warm welcome. We invite you to stroll along cobblestone streets framed by adorned half-timbered houses, take in the dreamy ambience and get a whiff of the impending holiday season that is on the way. After this early taste of Christmas, we continue along the Moselle, following its windy bendy path all the way to Cochem for our next adventure.
We venture on to the castle perched high above the town. 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 festive 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.
