Itinerary

  • Düsseldorf... transfer from the airport and board Spirit of the Rhine here. Spend the evening settling into your cabin and exploring the ship.
  • Cologne... see city highlights on a walking tour that takes you to the Cologne Cathedral, and to see the characteristic buildings of the Medieval old town.
  • Bonn... the birthplace of famous composer, Beethoven—visit the monument, Romanesque Minster Cathedral, and the University of Bonn on your coach tour of the city.
  • Königswinter... a picturesque town nestled on the river banks, overlooked by the ancient castle ruins of Drachenfels.
  • Koblenz... dock here overnight, with free time to explore in the morning. Visit the point where the rivers meet (Deutsches Eck), or ride the cable car across the water. The next day, cruise through the Middle Rhine, which is home to roughly 40 hilltop castles and fortresses. 
  • Rüdesheim... wind your way through the narrow street of Drosselgasse, which is lined with traditional wine taverns.
  • Frankfurt... see the striking contrast of the modern city centre and historic square of Römerberg on a guided tour. Spend your last night on board ahead of your flight home.
