Cozy up on this festive cruise along the Rhine River, listening to Christmas music as you admire castles, churches and vineyards on the shores of the river. Savor waffles and hot coffee (at own expense) as you make your way from Rüdesheim toward Koblenz. On your 2-hour journey through the Rhine Gorge, a UNESCO World Heritage site, breathe in the crisp air as you capture photos of attractions including Rheinfels Castle, Katz Castle, Marksburg Castle and Stolzenfels Castle and sing along with favorite Christmas carols before returning back to Rüdesheim. This is an ideal way to spend a winter afternoon in this scenic region!

Your 2-hour Rhine cruise begins in Rüdesheim, a popular wine country town that’s home to a huge Christmas Market in Old Town selling festive food and crafts from a dozen different countries. Board your heated, covered boat in mid-afternoon for your scenic cruise along the romantic Rhine River.

Make your way through a winter wonderland as you cruise toward Koblenz. Delight in the snow-topped cliffs and many castles you pass, including Rheinfels, Katz, Marksburg and Stolzenfels. The mighty fortresses and storybook villages with their towering church steeples will capture your imagination.

While you glide along the magnificent Rhine River, enjoy hearty waffles with sour cherries -- a local favorite -- and coffee (at own expense) that will help keep you warm. Festive Christmas carols make this winter’s afternoon jaunt even more merry.

Meet your guide at Adlerturm, the Eagle Tower next to the river, a Gothic corner tower of the old town fortification. Built in the 15th century, it once was located directly on the Rhine. From there immerse into the charming Old Town with its crooked cobble-stoned streets. Walk up Marktstrasse and get to the Market Square. In the middle of the square you will discover a fountain decorated with the statue of a wine-drinking man. View the Catholic Parish Church of Saint James built in the 14th century and reconstructed with quarry stone from the Rhineland after its almost complete destruction in 1944. Next we continue to Klunkhards Estate, one of the architectural pearls of the old town: this slightly curved half-timbered building dates back to the 16th century and was formerly owned by one of the highly-esteemed families of Rüdesheim. Walk along the pedestrianized area on Oberstrasse, the „upper street“, and pass in front of the Medieval Torture Museum which illustrates the history of punishment and torture in the Middle Ages as well as the time of witch-hunting in Germany.  Get a glimpse of the cable cars departing from the station Oberstrasse and gliding smoothly over the vineyards up to Niederwald Monument with its main figure Germania. It was erected between 1877 and 1883 to symbolize the re-establishment of the German Empire. Stroll down Drosselgasse, the famous picturesque lane amid the old town and definitely the heart of Rüdesheim. Formerly built for boat owners to settle into town, it nowadays provides beautifully decorated restaurants, wine-taverns and in summer never-ending music performances. Your guide will also take you to Brömserburg Castle, originally the residence-stronghold of the bishops of Mainz built in the 10th century. In earlier times it was situated directly on the banks of the Rhine, completely surrounded by water and its more than 2 meters thick walls successfully withstanding any attack. Brömserburg is actually one of the oldest castles in the Rhine Gorge World Heritage site. Nowadays, it houses an outstanding wine museum which informs how winemaking has evolved throughout the ages and exhibits an extensive collection of wine presses. In Rüdesheim, some of the vineyards are right in the middle of the town’s center thus giving it an amazing rustic charm and blending perfectly with the historic buildings. In the immediate proximity of Brömserburg you will find Boosenburg tower from the 9th century dominating all other buildings in the city with its 38 meters high Romanesque defensive construction. Returning to Oberstrasse up the slope, you will discover some more beautiful aristocratic residences with half-timbered architecture. The most attractive of them undoubtedly is Brömserhof which was constructed in 1542.  Brömserhof today is the site of Siegfried’s Mechanical Music Cabinet providing a vast collection of fascinating musical instruments dating back 3 centuries.
