Itinerary

To join the Romantic Rhine Valley Half-Day Tour from Frankfurt you should make your way to the tour office at Wiesenhüttenstr. 39, 60329 Frankfurt to meet your English-speaking guide. Hotel pick-up can be arranged for an extra charge (approx euro 5.00 per person).

This tour takes you by coach to the most beautiful part of the great Rhine Valley – the Middle Rhine. This area has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its natural beauty and historic importance.

In its middle section, the Rhine runs through a spectacular gorge. Rich agriculture and a booming water-borne trade made the area wealthy and great castles were built on crags to protect the trade route.

The glorious landscape has been celebrated by many poets and artists. It inspired Heinrich Heine to write his poem “Lorelei”, and Wagner used this stretch of the river as the setting for his opera “Götterdämmerung”.

Enjoy a scenic boat trip on a Rhine steamer and a wine-tasting session before relaxing over dinner in a beautiful waterside restaurant. The set meal is German roast chicken with French fries and a mixed salad. A vegetarian option is available. Your guide will ask the group prior to arrival to the restaurant if they wish to have the regular dinner or the vegetarian dinner.

Your tour ends back at the starting point at Wiesenhüttenstr. 39. Hotel drop-off can be arranged for an extra charge (approx euro 5.00 per person).
