About the tour: Cruising along the Rhine & Moselle

Set sail on a five-night river cruise from Andernach, and meander the Rhine and Moselle Rivers in complete comfort, on board the MV Prinses Christina. Overlooked by vine-clad slopes and legendary fairy tale castles we travel up and downstream taking in the historic river side towns of Andernach and Cochem, the 'pearl of the Moselle', passing the Loreley Rock and arriving at the ever-popular town of Rüdesheim. We disembark back in Koblenz and on this tour we will also pay a brief visit to the Dutch town of Valkenburg either before or after your river cruise.

Later, we arrive in Cochem, the ‘pearl of the Moselle’, a picturesque town with narrow cobbled streets and twisting alleys and restored half-timbered houses with slate roofs, overlooked by the magnificent Reichsburg Castle. Cochem is the biggest town in the district and the Reichsburg Castle was first documented in 1130. The castle was once an Imperial castle as in 1151 King Konrad III named it his home. Why not visit the castle or enjoy one of the many cafés which offer a wide range of local pastries and cakes.
