Castles on the Rhine

Watch it!

Day Trip • €79

Our exciting day on the Rhine River includes a tour of Burg Rheinstein, a scenic Rhine River cruise, regional German lunch, visit to Rüdesheim, one of the most famous wine towns on the Rhine River and much more! We’ll begin our adventure high above the Rhine River where the castles are perched for a panoramic view of the valley and delve into the history of one of these grand fortresses.

After exploring the castle we’ll head back down to the river to board our cruise ship and enjoy the Rhine River and valley from a totally different vantage point. We’ll journey through one of the most beautiful and romantic parts of the River and see many more castles and ruins along the way before arriving at the charming town of Rüdesheim. Here we enjoy a tasty regional lunch followed by some free time to sightsee the famous “Drosselgasse”, sample some wine or do a little shopping.

Weather permitting we’ll also take a cable car ride up to the Niederwald Monument for another splendid view of the vineyards and valley.
