Colours of Autumn on the Moselle – Koblenz to Trier

This autumn explore some of Germany’s oldest cities on this fascinating river cruise along the picturesque Moselle river. We follow its course between Koblenz and Trier, through one of Europe’s most beautiful river valleys, where we will discover hillsides covered by terraced vineyards and ancient castle ruins overlooking quaint wine villages. Join our optional wine tasting excursion in Cochem, explore the ancient Roman region of Trier or simply stop and watch the world go by in some of Germany’s prettiest medieval market towns. With history and culture combined, this wonderful cruise aboard the MPS Lady Anne is the perfect autumnal break.
