5 ‘must-dos’ on your Rhineland Language Trip

Jun 23, 2017


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 give students an all-round taste of ‘real Germany’.

With so much to experience, we’ve put together our top 5 ‘must-dos’ suggestions for your Language Trip to The Rhineland!

1.      Cruise on the River Rhine

A Rhine cruise is the most picturesque way to view the surrounding area, as you pass by castles, vineyards and beautiful towns. Commentary in German is a great way for students to test their listening skills as well as learn more about this ‘wunderschöne’ region.

2.      Chocolate Museum

Take a journey through the 3,000-year-old history of chocolate in this unique and exciting museum, built to look like a futuristic ship. Machines have been moved from a working factory to the museum and visitors can watch the chocolate being made – and taste the results – making the experience that little bit sweeter!

3.      Phantasialand Theme Park

Phantasialand is one of Germany’s oldest and most popular theme parks. Like all great theme parks, there are plenty of roller coasters and water slides, as well as rides for those not looking for the big thrills and spills.

4.      Cologne Cathedral

Cologne offers plenty of attractions and language learning opportunities, but a visit to the impressive cathedral is a must. This Gothic cathedral with its distinctive twin towers is Germany’s most visited attraction. Climb the south tower’s 509 steps to be rewarded with a stunning panoramic view of the city.

5.      Koblenz Town Rally

Offered by our chosen language school, this unique opportunity begins with a classroom session learning about the history of Koblenz, asking for directions and map reading, before heading out into Koblenz town centre. Exciting tasks encourage students to interact with the community and explore local culture as they ask for directions and information.
