Join Brabant and embark on an effortlessly rewarding German jaunt combining stops at a string of enchanting towns and cities with unforgettable daytime scenic river cruising. From spectacular cathedrals and castles to world-famous vineyards, magnificent mountains, rolling hills and more, you’ll experience the best of this beautiful country from aboard your smaller-sized river boat and during time ashore. A taste of historic France is thrown in for good measure too.

Calling first at Cologne, there’s a chance to marvel at the remarkable exterior and interior of the city’s iconic twin-spired cathedral and explore the charming Old Town before continuing onward along the Rhine. You’ll pass by Bonn, birthplace of Beethoven and the former capital of West Germany, see the historic Dreesen and Petersburg hotels, and marvel at the gorgeous Siebengebirge Mountains en route to Remagen. This fascinating town is like a living-museum of wartime history. Be sure to visit the famous Ludendorff Bridge during your time here; one of the surviving towers is now an interesting museum exhibiting the role of Remagen and the Ludendorff in World War Two.

Brabant will then divert down the breathtaking Moselle, a simply unforgettable scenic river cruise experience. Revel in the glorious scenery of the Middle Moselle Valley as you glide by the region’s steep vineyards and postcard-perfect riverbank towns towards Bernkastel-Kues, where a medley of half-timbered houses, welcoming wine taverns and stunning lush-green scenery beckons you ashore. The journey through the Moselle Valley will be extra special, as only smaller river boats can transit this narrow stretch. The delights of Cochem, including romantic squares and the imposing Reichsburg Castle, await the following morning before you sail through the sensational scenery of the Lower Moselle Valley to Koblenz. Here you can take in a plethora of historic landmarks, such as the ancient Ehrenbreitstein Fortress, the Prussian Electoral Palace and the 13th century Alte Berg.

Your time in Germany concludes in Speyer after yet more scenic cruising by the forests and fairytale fortresses of the Middle Rhine Valley. Speyer’s UNESCO-listed Romanesque Cathedral is a must-visit, while the city’s stellar museums are worth a look too. Finally, a foray into France ensures a memorable end to your cruise. Be mesmerised by the exquisite Cathédrale Notre-Dame and peaceful canals of Strasbourg, then sit back and relax as Brabant navigates the tranquil Upper Rhine Valley and the locks of the Grand Canal d’Alsace.

In recent years the city has been extensively rebuilt and restructured, and is now one of the most important historical and cultural centres in Europe.

    With such a rich history and heritage, Cologne is a picture book of fascinating highlights and experiences.

The soaring gothic spires of this incredible 13th century structure can be seen from all over the city, however visiting the cathedral is a must to marvel at its spectacular architecture up-close and uncover the treasures within.

    The city’s many other must-visit sights and attractions include the impressive Hohenzollern Bridge, which spans the Rhine near the cathedral; a collection of 12 glorious Romanesque churches including St Kunibert, St Severin and St Andreas; the beautiful Forstbotanischer botanical garden; and several galleries and museums such as the Fragrance Museum and Museum Ludwig, which boasts one of the Europe’s finest Picasso collections.

    As you sail along the Rhine you’ll pass by some of the historic landmarks of Bonn – West Germany’s former capital – and the 13th century Godesburg Castle, which towers over the village of Bad Godesburg; see the arresting sight of Hotel Dreesen; and take in the stunning Siebengebirge Hills, where you’ll catch a glimpse of Drachenfels Castle overlooking the pretty resort city of Königswinter.  

  • Remagen

    Believed to have played a major role in bringing about the end of World War Two, Remagen – situated on the Rhine River just a short distance south of Bonn – is one of the most important towns in German history. It’s here where the infamous Battle of Remagen took place in March 1945, which led to the capture of the Ludendorff Bridge by Allied forces and eventually the downfall of Hitler as the Allies stormed Germany’s western front.

    Although the Ludendorff Bridge no longer spans the Rhine here – it unfortunately collapsed shortly after the Battle of Remagen – the bridge’s foreboding black-basalt towers still stand defiantly on the west bank of the river today. These towers are Remagen’s most popular attraction and house the interesting Friedensmuseum (Peace Museum), which offers a fascinating insight into the history of the Ludendorff and Remagen before, during and after the war.
     
    There is much more to Remagen than its role in World War Two though. Venture away from the river and into the ancient town centre and you’ll discover traces of Remagen’s past which long predate the towers of the Ludendorff. Among the historic highlights are the imposing Roman-Gothic Church of St Peter and Paul – which stands of the ruins and relics of a Roman fort – and the Pfarrhoftor, an impressive parish gate featuring many late Romanesque carvings. Just north of the city centre is the spectacular Apollinariskirche. This stunning mid-19th century church was built in tandem with Cologne’s world famous cathedral and features soaring spires and beautiful frescoes – a sight that’s not to be missed.

    While Koblenz’s beginnings date back to Roman times, the Franks, the French, the Prussians and of course, the Germans have all controlled and heavily influenced the city over the years. Many centuries-old fortifications and castles, impressive palaces and sculpted parks, which offer an insight into Koblenz’s fascinating past, highlight this rich and diverse history. The magnificent 19th century Stolzenfels Castle, watching over the Rhine on the left bank of the river; Alte Berg, the former electoral castle built in the 13th century; the Prussian Electoral Palace, where the Prussian Crown Prince and Kaiser Wilhelm I once resided; and the neo-romantic Prussian Government building are all among the highlights. Also not to be missed is the ancient Ehrenbreitstein Fortress, which can be reached via the Koblenz cable car and offers stunning views of Koblenz and the surrounding river scenery from 118 metres above the city.

    It’s also well worth taking the time to venture into the charming Altstadt district, where pretty squares, ornate churches such as Liebfrauenkirche and St Castor Basilica, and the iconic Vier Türme towers await.

    Compact, picturesque and beautifully well-preserved, stunning Speyer always makes for a rewarding stop while cruising along the beautiful River Rhine. Easily explored on foot, the city is perfect for a few hours of relaxing sightseeing in the sunshine. Having survived the Second World War largely unscathed and unspoilt – something which can't be said about many settlements strategically situated on the banks of Germany's waterways – Speyer is a 'living museum' of magnificent monuments and landmarks exhibiting several centuries of incredible history.

    The main attractions include the soaring neo-gothic Memorial Church – the tallest structure in the entire Rhineland-Palatinate – which was built between 1893 and 1904 to commemorate the city's imperial protests in the 16th century; the Old City Gate and the 'normal foot', remnants of Speyer's fortifications from the Middle Ages; and reminders of the city's remarkable Jewish heritage, such as the ruins of the medieval synagogue and the 12th century Jewish ritual bath. The late Baroque architecture of the stately City Hall is worth a look too.

    Off all the city's impressive sights, the UNESCO-listed cathedral is without doubt the crowning glory. This mighty architectural wonder has loomed large over Speyer for nearly 1000 years, having been founded by Konrad II in the 1020s, extended by Henry IV in the 1080s and extensively rebuilt in the 18th century after the Palatine War. Today it stands proud as the largest preserved Romanesque church in Europe.
