Rhine in Flames Spectacular – Tour Completed

27th June - 9th July 2024(12 nights)pdfdownload


Spectacular Fireworks & Evening Dinner Cruise

The main highlight to this tour is an evening cruise with dinner & wine to see the magnificent Rhine in Flames, which is the collective name given to a series of spectacular firework displays that take place each year on the river Rhine.  

We meet at our first campsite in Luxembourg, situated in the middle of the Upper Sauer Nature Park in the Luxembourg Ardennes

Our drive into Germany, takes us first to Bernkastel-Kues, nestling on the banks of the Moselle River. Here we will be visiting a Wine Producer to sample the local wine.

Our next stop is Koblenz, one of Germany’s oldest and most beautiful cities, where the Rhine and Moselle converge 

Our final location is Rüdesheim am Rhine, an attractive town laying in the rivers gorge and renowned for its wonderful views. The narrow-cobbled lanes of the Old Town lined with wine taverns and gardens are certainly not to be missed. We have included a visit to the fascinating museum of mechanical musical instruments, and you will also see the Germania Monument and get a bird’s eye view of the vineyards that cling to the sides of the Gorge as we return to the river by cable car.

It is from Rüdesheim that you will board the river cruiser where dinner will be served whilst enjoying a leisurely cruise along the river. Then we join a flotilla of illuminated riverboats to take in the spectacle of the fireworks, pyrotechnics and experience the riverbanks and landmarks as they change into a magical red glow – an unforgettable experience.

This tour is also reasonably pet friendly.
