COACH HOLIDAY ITINERARY
DAY 1 Depart home area and head to Folkestone for the Eurotunnel crossing. We make suitable comfort stops along the way including somewhere suitable for lunch to be purchased before travelling to the hotel where we have a welcome glass of wine, followed by time to freshen up before our evening meal.
DAY 2 After breakfast visit Cochem, one of Germany’s traditional towns with half-timbered houses, which also has an exceptionally scenic location on the Mosel River. The majestic Reichsburg dominates the townscape from nearly all perspectives. Cochem market square is straight out of a fairy tale, boasting lots of independent shops and cafes for lunch to be purchased. After a day at leisure here, return to hotel for our evening meal.
DAY 3 After breakfast travel to Trier, the oldest city in Germany, situated on the banks of the Moselle River. The highlight of Trier is the Porta Nigra (‘black gate’). The gate looks much as it did when it was built in 180 A.D. (Free entry). Opportunity to visit the Cathedral of Trier, which houses great works of art and a holy relic that draws many pilgrims. Return to the hotel for our evening meal.
DAY 4 After breakfast head to Bernkastel Kues, located on the Moselle. Immerse yourself in the thrilling atmosphere of an old town that is full of history and culture. The picturesque old town of Bernkastel, with its many charming half-timbered houses from the Middle Ages and attractions such as the historic market square or the Landshut castle ruins, invites you to stroll and explore. In the district of Kues, however, there are many wineries and taverns. Bernkastel-Kues is famous for its vineyards, which are amongst the oldest in Germany. Opportunity to enjoy wine tasting here (price not included, from approx €10pp) before returning to the hotel for our evening meal.
