Day
Route

Individual arrival and embarkation between 3:00 pm and 5:00 pm; On the ship, you will be welcomed by your captain and crew and the tour management.

You begin your first cycle tour at the gate to the Upper Middle Rhine Valley, in the historic city of Koblenz. Surrounded by vineyards and castle ruins, cycle alongside the Rhine River in the direction of Boppard.

From Boppard, start off for a cycle tour that leads along the Rhine to Oberwesel. On this short trip, you come by many scenic outposts from where you have the possibility to enjoy the varied landscape. From the bank of the river, the many fortresses and the legendary Loreley cliff offer a picturesque backdrop all along the way.

Today`s cycle tour starts in Oberwesel. Riding past slate cliffs and through thick forests, on your way you pass sights like the Pfalzgrafenstein Castle near Kaub and the Niederwald Monument before reaching today`s destination, the wine town of Bingen. Here we suggest that you visit the world-famous Drosselgasse.

On this stretch, the Rhine River shows off again all of its beauty. On your way, you ride past Eltville am Rhein. The town`s landmark, the Electoral Castle, is well worth a visit.  Mainz, today`s destination, is home to numerous impressive buildings. You may want to visit St Martin`s Cathedral, one of the proud imperial cathedrals in Germany, or the Electoral Palace. Lined with beautiful half-timbered buildings and wine taverns, pretty narrow lanes and marvellous squares like the Augustinerstraße and the Kirschgarten Square invite you for a stroll through the Old Town.

A short leg of the journey with lots of time to indulge: directly alongside the Rhine, you cycle on the well-paved Rhine Cycle Route to Nierstein. With almost 1.000 hectares of vineyard surface area, Nierstein is the biggest wine-growing municipality on the Rhine. You may also want to visit the historic Old Town with its medieval market square and the noble houses. In the afternoon, enjoy the boat tour from Nierstein to Worms.

Start off for today`s cycle tour in Worms, the city of the Nibelungs. On an extensive cycle tour alongside the bank of the Rhine River, you will have again the possibility to fall for the charms of the vineyards and to enjoy the scenery along the Rhine. Coming from the south, you cycle towards Nierstein, also referred to as the Riesling City. From there, your ship sets sail for Mainz.

After breakfast, disembarkation until 09:00 am.

Tour character
