The mighty Rhine, for so long one of Europes main trading routes contrasts beautifully with our exploration of the Moselle, surely one of the loveliest rivers in all Europe. We will also visit the historic city of Heidelberg on the Neckar River, one of Europes great seats of learning.
Most trips on offer along the Rhine are based on four to six days and concentrate on only one section of the river. Here you have a most comprehensive journey including as it does some of the most interesting places in the Netherlands, combined with the great wine producing areas along the Moselle and the historic cities of Cologne, Koblenz and Heidelberg and the enchanting resort of Baden-Baden.
Added to these riches are visits in France to Strasbourg, an endlessly fascinating place in the delightful Alsace region. This detailed look at two of Europes great rivers will offer a captivating and endlessly romantic journey. The scenery is stunning and makes an excellent combination with the artistic riches we shall see along the way from the wonderful collections on show in the museums and galleries to the fairytale castles and medieval charms of the towns and villages along the rivers. This promises to be a most relaxing and rewarding journey.
