12 Dec 2018 on the mps Lady Anne

Day 1 UK – Andernach

We travel to Andernach and settle aboard our ship. The remainder of the evening is free for strolling through the delightful streets and along the riverside promenades of this attractive walled town.

Day 2 Andernach – Oberwesel – Koblenz

An early start takes us through the spectacular Rhine Gorge and past the famous Lorelei rock, to the picturesque town of Oberwesel. From here you can join our optional excursion visiting the Christmas market in Rüdesheim, a delightful event held in the town’s chocolate-box old quarter. Alternatively, stay onboard as our ship cruises to Koblenz, where you can spend the rest of the day enjoying the Koblenz Christmas Market, with its festive wooden stalls offering a huge range of seasonal gifts.

Day 3 Koblenz – Cologne

We continue cruising down the Rhine to our final destination, the beautiful city of Cologne. The hive of festive activity takes place around the cathedral and the old town, where you will find a maze of pretty stalls offering outstanding arts and crafts. There are also a number of smaller markets to enjoy including the Harbour Christmas Market held on the Rhine, with snowy white pagoda tents reminiscent of a ships sails, and there’s the idyllic market held in the city garden. Alternatively, you can join our optional excursion visiting Düsseldorf Christmas Market. The Marketplatz in front of the town hall hosts the most stalls; there’s also the Little Angel Market, Little Star Market and several more festive areas to explore.

This morning we bid farewell to our captain and crew and disembark for the return journey to the UK.
