Legendary Rhine & Moselle (2018) : River Queen
13 Days From Basel To Amsterdam
Experience the enduring allure of the spectacularly scenic Rhine and Moselle
Revel in the UNESCO-designated Rhine River Valley, with its vine-covered slopes and castle-dotted shores, and the mesmerizing Moselle, the Rhine's breathtaking tributary. Explore the delights of five nations and savor the best these regions have to offer.
Discover Amsterdam's rich legacy in art at either the Van Gogh Museum or the Rijksmuseum, home to Rembrandt's The Night Watch. Step into the pages of fairytales as you walk through the cobblestone streets of postcard-perfect towns such as Cochem, Riquewihr, Rudesheim and Colmar, and as you cruise along the historic canals of picturesque Strasbourg. Learn the time-honored traditions of Villeroy & Boch at the baroque Benedictine Old Abbey in Mettlach, where they have been producing exquisite porcelain since 1803. Take in the grand landmarks of Cologne, Trier and Luxembourg. "Go Active" with hikes to the 12th-century Thurant Castle and through the steepest vineyard in Europe, the Calmont Steig, and cycle along the Moselle, over bridges, past steep vineyards and through picturesque wine villages.
Throughout your journey, gain an appreciation for the region's flavors. Join the mayor of Ediger- Eller at a wine tasting of delicious local Rieslings. Hear the legend of Dr. Pauly-Bergweiler at his historic estate and sample its delightful Rieslings. And visit the Doktorenhof vinegar estate to sample unique aperitifs made from wine vinegars in the atmospheric tasting room complete with candles, cloaks and choir music. Fall under the bewitching spell of the legendary Rhine and gently flowing Moselle.
