Amazing holiday on the Rhein & Mosel rivers. Fabulous ship - William Shakespeare - cabins with sliding french doors so you can sit in your cabin as you glide along. Great places to visit including Koblenz, Bernkastel, Cochem & Boppard. The food is excellent, plentiful & varied for all tastes. The crew are helpful and cheerful. Riviera travel has an... More

We stayed in the vineyard town of Mehring at Hoffranzen Gasthaus they produce their own wine and allowed us to watch the process and see the cellars. We walked to dinner at a local spot for dinner. We had breakfast at our Gasthaus it was nice sitting and visiting with other travelers while enjoying breakfast. Hoffranzen is not listed on... More

If you start in Koblenz and journey to Trier the Mosel River Valley presents a lot of fantastic options that can easily consume a week. This was our second time in the area, the first being in December, this time late May. This trip we used Cochum as our home base for three days. Cochum is a picturesque city that... More

We travelled to this region from Kerry Airport in Ireland and arrived at Hahn airport. Our accommodation was self catering at Bacchus apartment in Enkirch. We really enjoyed our stay here and travelled along the Mosel river stopping off at the picturesque villages along the way. I would highly recommend this area for a relaxing holiday. Bicycles would be a... More

The Mosel river is a much nicer experience compared to the Rhein. It is romantic and each village has its own charm. We are a young couple, so beware there is not as much night life, but ideal for a romantic holiday. I recommend Cochem, Bernkastel and Calmont! Best wines and food!

My husband and I just arrived home after a two week stay with our friends in Germany. They took us for a three day stay to the Mosel River. The area there was absolutely beautiful. It is wine country there so there are vineyards everywhere. We went on a 2 1/2 hour boat ride down the Mosel River. Words just... More

We had a chance to learn more about the... More

Imagine, a rural river of vineyards and small wine villages, lined with bicycle and walking paths, lined in turn with wineshops, stretching leisurely for a hundred kilometres in the heart of Germany. Sound impossible, but it's real. And the riesling is the best in the world. If you don't want to stay in one of the main cities, you don't... More
