The Rhineland, where breathtaking scenery steeped in legendary folklore meets traditional German towns and cities. The rolling green hills surrounding the banks of the mighty River Rhine are adorned with magnificent castles and palaces – making it feel like something out of a fairy tale – whilst the cobbled streets and traditional architecture seen in Cologne and Koblenz gives students an all-round taste of ‘real Germany’.

The friendly locals will welcome you with open arms. However, with little English spoken throughout the region, students’ language skills will be put to the ultimate test! Germany is famed for its Christmas Markets and this region hosts some of the best around, so why not speak to us about the possibility of a trip in December?

Day 1:

The group had an early check in for their flight from London Stansted to Cologne Bonn Airport. Upon arrival the group travelled into Cologne, the city centre and took advantage of some free time to explore the area and familiarise themselves with their surroundings. Many chose to visit the magnificent cathedral to climb the 509 stone steps of the spiral staircase to the viewing platform for amazing views over the city. Others took a guided tour of the Chocolate Museum where they learned more about the history of chocolate and ceased the opportunity to sample a little too! The group travelled on to their hotel in Boppard for their evening meal and a welcome nights’ sleep.

Day 2:

After breakfast the group made the short walk into Boppard town centre to explore the town and to experience its bustling central market, the impressive church of St Severus and it’s many quaint streets and shops. After a spot of lunch the group embarked on a Rhine River Cruise from Boppard to St Goarshausen. Sitting back and relaxing as the sights of the river bank passed them by from the comfort of the boat was an absolute pleasure for all! After the cruise the group met their coach for the journey back to the hotel where they sampled their next slice of German cuisine. The remainder of the evening was spent reminiscing about their day and relaxing in the evening sunshine.

“Excellent organisation from start to finish.”

Day 3:

Today the group spent a thrilling day at Phantasialand Theme Park travelling on the numerous water rides, roller coasters and rides. Everyone had a thoroughly brilliant day and enjoyed a slower paced evening meal and much needed nights’ sleep.

Day 4:

On their final day the group took time at leisure to explore the town of Boppard. After completing a treasure hunt, making good use of their now well practiced German language skills, many took advantage of the Boppard mini train and chairlift ride for a new perspective of the Boppard landscape. They then returned to the hotel to collect their belongings before commencing their return journey home.
