  • Coblenz
    ---
    18:00

    The German city of Koblenz enjoys a fabulous geographical setting. It lies at the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle rivers (what a treat for riverboat cruise trips) and the convergence of three low mountain ranges, the Westerwald, Hunsrück, and the Eifel (great photo opportunities). It is a popular destination for exploring the romantic Rhine Valley. It is a rather unimposing town mostly visited because of its strategic position but it is welcoming and pleasant with a good range of bars and restaurants in a pedestrianised centre.

    There are some interesting attractions, a major one being the Deutsches Eck, a park with a huge statue of Kaiser Wilhelm who base provides a great position to view the point where the Rhine and Moselle meet. The best time to visit Koblenz is in August during the festival Rhein in Flammen (Rhine in Flames) when there is a splendid fireworks display.

  • Bernkastel

    17:30

    Situated in the Moselle Valley of Germany, Bernkastel is a small town that is famous for its Renaissance Town Hall established in 1608, the Graach Gate, and cultivating and harvesting grapes used to create some of the finest wine in Europe. With a population of approximately 1,087 people, the town strives off of the wine-growing industry. Although the town has undergone some renovations to make it modernized, you can still find sturdy, pointed timber-frame buildings dating back to the 17th century in its medieval marketplace.

    Festivals and celebrations such as the Wine Festival of the Middle Moselle, International Rowing Regatta on the Moselle, annual horse shows, along with street fairs and Christmas markets bring to life unique cultural traditions. The town once had two railway stations that have since been dismantled and converted to cycling trails, limiting the town's main source of transportation to automobiles, bikes, and water vehicles. Bernkastel is also the birthplace of Nikolaus von Kues, a famous German philosopher and mathematician.

    14:30
    Trier is the oldest city in Germany, nestling in the west on the banks of the Moselle. The city has been inhabited since Roman times, and some huge remains are still standing, including the stunning Porta Nigra gate. With multiple UNESCO World Heritage sites, Trier offers much more for the visitor, ranging from other Roman remains such as the imperial throne room to the oldest Gothic church in Germany. Karl Marx was born here, and there's a museum in the Baroque-style house where he grew up. The city offers lovely waterfront views, and it's also the home of some of the country's best wines with which you can accompany the tasty local cuisine. The city's lively university gives the place a youthful, energetic vibe that continues after dark.

    Excursions Trier / Riol

    Trier: The secrets of Porta Nigra

    The Porta Nigra gate dates back to a time (around 180 AD) when the Romans often constructed public buildings from huge blocks of stone (here the largest weigh up to six tons). Here a Roman centurion will show you the secrets of the Porta Nigra. The centurion - in the splendour of his parade armament - takes us back to a time when Rome ruled the world - and the emperor in Trier decided the fate of the empire.
    Suddenly the audience stands in the middle of this eventful time - and not just as passive observers! In his exciting, entertaining and humorous way the Centurio takes us on an eventful journey through time. He snatches the many different secrets from the walls of the Porta Nigra: priceless and enigmatic, delightful and desolate. Suddenly all the people come to life who have entered and left through this gate: Emperors and warriors, bishops and barbarians, living bricklayers and devilish demons. And little by little the suspicion arises that not only the Porta Nigra holds a great surprising secret - the centurion too ...

    You will be thrilled by this eventful journey through the centuries: sometimes haunting, often entertaining - and always exciting.

    Trier: On the traces of the Romans

    You might think that the Roman Empire and antiquity are long gone? That may be true, but in Trier you still meet real Romans from time to time. They still know the city as "Augusta Treverorum", lived under the reign of Constantine and helped to create and build the famous buildings such as the basilica, the cathedral or the imperial thermal baths. Who could tell us the stories more authentically and with more enthusiasm than these very Romans? Let your Roman guide take you back to the Roman Empire and revive the times in your mind's eye while you visit the most important buildings in Trier. You will be surprised how much ancient Rome still appears in our everyday lives.

    Due to Covid-19, guided tours of the Porta Nigra are unfortunately not available for groups at present. You are welcome to do the tour yourself afterwards.
