About the tour
Breathtaking riverside scenery adjoins cities where modern history is but a footnote in their long and colorful stories in the Moselle wine region. We explore some of the most significant locales along the Moselle River, including Luxembourg, with its modern grandeur and contrasting castle-filled landscape, and many beautiful cities throughout Germany. Each harbor along the river unveils the mystique surrounding this ancient region and leaves travelers wanting for more. Stops range from Trier, the oldest city in Germany, to Bernkastel-Kues, renowned for its interesting past and "Doctorwein;" Cochem, home to Reichsburg Castle; and Koblenz, where the influences of numerous cultures have shaped the landscape into a melting pot of culture. Sail from the Moselle to the Rhine, with even more to be discovered in the wonderful cities of Rüdesheim, located in the heart of the Rhine Valley, and Speyer, where a UNESCO-listed cathedral is just part of what makes this destination so incredible. Guided excursions allow you to get an authentic feel of each city's ambiance - a taste of the history that seems to bring each destination to life. Between ports enjoy lavish accommodations aboard a luxury Amadeus river cruise ship. Chef-prepared multi-course meals and incredible views come standard. Paved on a path of old-world romance and adventure, this rail and cruise vacation introduces the best of the Moselle.
