Rhine Valley

Thanksgiving on the Rhine

River Cruise, Lunch & Castle Tour

This amazing all-inclusive Thanksgiving Celebration on the Rhine River offers a tour of Burg Rheinstein, a scenic Rhine River cruise with Thanksgiving turkey lunch, visit to Rüdesheim, one of the most famous wine towns on the Rhine River, and more!  Our adventure begins high above the Rhine River, perched atop Burg Rheinstein, where we are the first to visit the castle, which provides an uncrowded pleasant touring experience and panoramic view.  A tasty snack of coffee, hot cocoa, and a freshly baked waffle will be provided as we enjoy the festively decorated castle

After the castle tour, we'll head back down to the river to board our riverboat which offers plenty of outdoor space to enjoy the scenic views of the castles and valley.  We’ll journey through one of the most romantic parts of the Rhine River and see even more castles and ruins along the way while enjoying a festive Thanksgiving lunch.  During the cruise, our favorite wine purveyor Stefan from Stefan’s Wine Paradise will give us a presentation about the art and science of German winemaking, followed by a tasting and purchasing opportunities (adults only).

Our final stop brings us to the charming town of Rüdesheim and the famous “Drosselgasse. But before we start our free time, the season calls for a mug of hot Glühwein (mulled wine), so follow us to a festively decorated stand that opens only for us. Now we invite you to explore the many local sites and enjoy some souvenir shopping in the quaint streets and alleyways. Perhaps sample some of the famous German wine.
