Our exciting new packaged itinerary features journeys on some of the most charming little railways of the Rhine as well as relaxing cruises along the Rhine and Moselle rivers, all of which offer panoramic views and spectacular scenery - jump on board, relax and watch the beautiful scenery gently pass you by. The holiday starts as we cruise from Hull to Rotterdam with P&O Ferries and we then travel to Boppard, making suitable stops along the way.

We head to the Moselle Valley and the pretty riverside town of Cochem from where we embark on a&#0;round-trip cruise along the Moselle River. We spend the rest of the day at leisure in Cochem. We travel to Brohl, for a one-way journey on the&#0;Vulkan Express, a unique narrow-gauge railway.

Day 3

Today we spend some free time in Boppard before hopping on board for a one-way river cruise from Boppard, upstream through the northern section of the UNESCO protected Upper Middle Rhine Valley, to Oberlahnstein, from where we continue by coach to Königswinter, a historic Rhine Valley town located at the foot of the Siebengebirge Hills. Here we join the Drachenfelsbahn, Germany's oldest cog railway, for a return journey. From the Valley Station to the summit we cover a height difference of 220m and at the top we see the ruined medieval Drachenfels ('dragon's cliff') Castle with great views across the River Rhine. After our time in Königswinter, we return to our hotel by coach.

Day 4

Today we head to the Moselle Valley and the pretty riverside town of Cochem from where we embark on a round-trip cruise along the Moselle River, enjoying views of Reichsburg Castle and the surrounding vineyards. After our cruise, we spend the rest of the day in Cochem at leisure, giving us time to explore the Old Town, made up of quaint squares, winding alleys, half-timbered buildings and imposing town gates, watched over by its magnificent 11th century Reichsburg Castle, a Gothic masterpiece which is perched on a rocky outcrop from where there are fantastic views.

Day 5

Today we travel to Brohl for a one-way journey on the Vulkan Express, a unique narrow gauge railway. The line meanders up through the Brohl Valley into the Eifel Hills, where dramatic rock formations were created during a period of volcanic activity. Opened in 1901, the 11 mile journey takes one and a half hours as the locomotives reach a speed of 20km, climbing around 1,310 ft! We continue by coach from Engeln to the Ahr Valley, one of Germany's most famous wine growing regions where we visit the charming town of Mayschoss and enjoy wine tasting in one of the town's traditional wine cellars.
