Discover the historic cities of Cologne, Trier and Koblenz, as well as charming medieval towns in the beautiful Moselle valley on this picturesque six-day cruise

Made famous by the delicious wines produced on their sloping green sides, the Rhine and Moselle valleys in Germany are one of its most gorgeous regions. The river has been an important trading route for centuries, and so the cities along it, including mighty Cologne and ancient Trier, are full of fascinating history and inspirational architecture.

The sunny climate and fertile land here has produced beautiful landscapes of forests and vineyards, and the area has been making wine for over 2,000 years, with the Rhine's flowery Rieslings considered some of the finest white wines in Europe.

On this idyllic six-day river cruise you'll start and end in Cologne, with its lovely old town and stunning cathedral that's more than 150 metres high. Climb the 533 steps of the south tower for incredible views out across the city and the countryside beyond. More amazing sights await you in Koblenz, with its wealth of stately homes, palaces and smart townhouses.

You'll also visit Trier, a UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to its status as Germany's oldest city, and its impressive Roman buildings. Discover the amphitheatre, Roman baths, Basilica of Constantine and the iconic Porta Nigra - a soaring city gate made from sandstone. In the medieval town of Bernkastel-Kues you'll find traditional wine bars, and can tour the local vineyards to try wonderful vintages.

Your home for five nights will be the A-ROSA SILVA, a sleek, stylish river cruise ship with a spacious sun deck and outdoor bar and dining area, as well as a heated pool and putting green. As you sail through the idyllic Rhine and Moselle valleys you'll enjoy daily buffet meals of regional and seasonal specialities, plus drinks included all day and evening (tea, coffee, soft drinks, wine, beer, spirits and cocktails).

The ship's spacious, air-conditioned cabins have private bathrooms TVs, Wi-Fi and ensuite bathrooms with powerful showers. Many come with a French balcony (supplement applies).
