Glide along the Moselle on MS Serenade 1 and discover this river’s best-kept secrets. Scurry between timber-framed houses and cobbled streets in the shadows of Cochem’s grand castle. We travel back even further in time to explore the ruins of a one-time Roman metropolis in Trier.

Day 1 - Cologne

Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your journey to Dover, where we take a break before boarding our coaches, for the Channel crossing to Calais and onward journey to Cologne.

Upon arrival, embark MS Serenade 1 (4T), where light refreshments are available.

Dinner

Day 2 - Koblenz

Our first port of call on the trip, Koblenz has a charming old town with beautiful castles, a neoclassical Electoral Palace and markets that sprawl its string of small squares.

The dock is just a short stroll from the centre and as you walk, you’ll notice the vast ruins of Ehrenbreitstein Fortress on the opposite bank of the Rhine.

The cable car to the fortress makes for a wonderful view over the city and river (available in the summer and winter weekends).

We’ll start the morning off the right way today with an included wine tasting at Deinhard Cellar Museum.

Day 2 - Koblenz

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 3 - Cochem

Huddled among the lush slopes of the Moselle Valley, decorated with a mass of timber-framed houses set on a scurry of streets and a towering medieval castle above – there may not be a more beautiful scene in Germany than the town of Cochem (and there’s some stiff competition).

We’ll spend some time today exploring the 12th century castle together, before enjoying the local wine with another tasting.

Day 3 - Cochem

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 4 - Bernkastel

Resting in the heart of the beautiful Middle Moselle, Bernkastel is a quintessential medieval German town. Life is unhurried and simple pleasures prevail.

It’s one of those places where it’s better to simply ‘be’ than ‘do’. Spend your morning here slowly wandering the beautiful cobbled streets, feasting your eyes on the old-time architecture and maybe stopping for a coffee (or beer) in one of the squares to really soak up the small-town ambience.

But if you really want something to do, join us on an optional city walk and wine tasting.

If you have time, the 9th century hilltop Landshut Castle makes for a good wander – and offers a great viewpoint.

Day 4 - Bernkastel

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 5 - Trier

One of Germany’s oldest cities with an impressive number of UNESCO-listed sites (eight!), you won’t be left twiddling your thumbs here in the ‘Rome of the north’.

Step on shore to discover the pastel-hued city centre in Hauptmarkt square. Well-preserved townhouses create a mix of Renaissance, baroque and classic architecture. Further afield, the remnants of a Roman metropolis can be found with a number of ancient sights, including the majestic Porta Nigra gate.

Alternatively, opt for our optional excursion to beautiful Eltz Castle.

Nestled in the wooded hills north of Trier, this grand castle is still owned by the same family who lived there in the 12th century, 33 generations ago.

Day 5 - Trier

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 6 - Zell

Our next stop on the enchanting vineyard-wrapped slopes of the Moselle is Zell, a charming wine-producing town of old.

Wander through the selection of pretty-fronted shops and pick up a bottle or two as a souvenir.

Day 6 - Zell

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 7 - Andernach - Bonn

Spend the morning exploring the ancient town of Andernach before a lunchtime cruise, or opt for an excursion to Andernach Geyser – the highest cold-water geyser in the world.

Arriving in Bonn this afternoon, we’ll enjoy a walking tour taking in the Beethoven monument, the Romanesque Minster Cathedral, the University of Bonn, and the baroque City Hall.

Naturally, we’ll also visit Beethoven’s birthplace, which gives a fascinating insight into his life as you explore the museum, archives and chamber music hall.

Day 7 - Andernach - Bonn

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 8 - Cologne - UK

After breakfast we board our waiting coaches for the return journey to Calais and Channel crossing.

Upon arrival in Dover, your Titan vehicle will be waiting for the journey home.
