Spend six wonderful days on the meandering Moselle, following its path past a patchwork of sweeping, vine-clad banks, dotted with pretty timbered villages, medieval castles and Roman ruins.
Board your ship in Cologne and sail south on the Rhine, joining the sleepy Moselle at Koblenz. Your first call is the picture-perfect Cochem, its fantastic medieval castle looming over the pastel-coloured waterfront buildings. Enjoy an included walking tour of the town and castle, before continuing to the quintessential medieval twin towns of Bernkastel–Kues, located on opposite sides of the Moselle, amid picturesque vineyards.
Your next port of call is Mehring, for the UNESCO-declared city of Trier, established by Emperor Augustus and home to a collection of stunning Roman sites. Spend the day exploring this fascinating city, before cruising overnight to Koblenz, where you'll enjoy an included walking tour. Sitting at the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle, Koblenz has been a strategic stronghold for over 2,000 years and is dominated by the imposing mass of the mighty Ehrenbreitstein Fortress on its far bank. Return to Cologne to complete a wonderful cruise.
View a full breakdown of your holiday to help you plan your trip
Travel to Cologne, and board your sleek A-ROSA vessel at the quayside. Perhaps take a stroll through the city’s famous Altstadt beneath the great, twin-spired cathedral, before the ship sails in the early evening. Board your ship, dine when you wish at the gourmet buffet, and perhaps enjoy a nightcap before turning in.
Overnight, you’ll sail south on the Rhine, joining the Moselle at Koblenz.
This morning you’ll arrive in Cochen, a picture-perfect town with an imposing medieval castle. A-ROSA SILVA will moor at the town for the morning, giving you time to explore its charming narrow streets, lined with timber-framed buildings, and the pastel-coloured waterfront restaurants and cafés. Enjoy an included walking of the town and its impressive castle, or if you’re feeling extra-energetic, you may choose to join the optional bicycle tour through the Moselle Valley.
Depart in the early afternoon, and sail to Bernkastel–Kues, arriving in the early hours.
Wake up to the wonderful sight of the idyllic twin towns of Bernkastel–Kues, perched on opposing banks of the Moselle. Both towns are characterised by medieval half-timbered buildings and winding, narrow alleyways lined with cafés and restaurants, and are surrounded by picturesque vineyards. Your boat will moor here for the whole day, giving you the chance to find out more about your surroundings on an optional walking tour. Alternatively, you may choose to explore a little further afield on an optional bicycle tour along the banks of the Moselle River and past the surrounding vineyards.
Re-board your ship, dine when you wish at the gourmet buffet, perhaps enjoying a nightcap before the ship sails later in the evening.
In the morning you’ll arrive at Mehring, near the border with Luxembourg, for optional visits to Trier. Board the coach for the short journey from the boat’s berth in Mehring to the UNESCO-protected city of Trier, founded by Emperor Augustus and birthplace of Karl Max. The city is famous for its collection of well-preserved Roman sites. In fact, eight of Germany’s 39 protected UNESCO sites are found in Trier, including an amphitheatre, Emperor Constantine’s throne room, and Germany’s oldest bridge. These sites are bought to life by an optional tour, or perhaps you’ll choose to explore the city under your own steam.
Return to your boat for an early evening departure.
Spend the morning relaxing, taking in the majestic scenery from the deck as you softly glide around the Moselle’s sweeping bends, or perhaps make the most of the on-board facilities.
After lunch, you’ll tie up in Koblenz, which sits spectacularly at the meeting point of the Rhine and Moselle. A strategic stronghold for over 2,000 years, Koblenz is dominated by the imposing mass of the mighty Ehrenbreitstein fortress on the far bank. Step ashore an enjoy an included walking tour. Afterwards, why not take a seat in a café or weinstube, a small traditional German bar, along the riverside promenade to Deutsches Eck, where the rivers converge.
Later, enjoy a last evening on board before your ship slips back out into the river and cruises downstream to Cologne overnight.
Today you’ll wake up in the city of Cologne. Bid a fond farewell to A-ROSA SILVA and her crew at the end of a marvellous cruise, as you begin your journey home.
