Day 1

Following a collection from home we head to Dover for the short sea crossing to Calais. We continue our journey to Germany, arriving at our hotel in time for dinner.


Day 2

This morning we catch the cable car from Rüdesheim up to the Niederwald Monument, affording us spectacular views over the Rhine Valley as we go. From here, we continue by coach to Jagdschloss Niederwald from where we descend by chairlift down to Assmannshausen, where we board a river boat for a scenic cruise back to Rüdesheim. After free time for lunch here, we visit the Eberbach Monastery for a 90 minute guided tour and tasting of Eberbach Riesling wine. Taste buds tingling, we make our way to the RheinWeinWelt wine cellar to sample more of the good stuff - we taste 5 wines, helping ourselves from the numerous self-serve dispensers. There are around 160 different wines from the Rhine region on offer here, so we must choose wisely!
