World Heritage site containing parts of the original palace of Charlemagne

Day 3 Wednesday

Leisure time, maybe for a cruise on the lake, plus a short drive
to medieval Bad Munstereifel, a delightful town full of attractive buildings in a largely
traffic free centre.

B, D

Day 4 Thursday

y. We start at Altenahr at the head of the valley, a tourist centre with
bars, restaurants, a castle and even a summer toboggan. Then we follow the River
Ahr, a tributary of the Rhine, through a deep valley lined with Germany’s northernmost
vineyards, producing notable red wines. Plenty of places to drink them too, such as
the Mayschoss cellars. Stop afterwards in Bad Neuenahr/Ahrweiler, a remarkably
attractive spa town, full of pretty gardens and attractive buildings

B, D

Day 5 Friday

Homeward via Calais and a late afternoon ferry to Dover


B=Breakfast, D=Dinner

An updated tour to one of the most popular hotels we have had in our programmes over the years. 2020 seems an appropriate time to bring it back. There are fine views of wellwooded valleys from the volcanic high ground and a succession of attractive market towns and villages with their timber-framed houses and terrific floral displays. Lots to see and enjoy round Monschau, Bad Munstereifel, the Ahr Valley and Aachen.


HOTEL SEEMOWE, SIMMERATH-EINRUHR A deservedly popular hotel in a small village with a beautiful waterside setting on the Rursee, a part of the Nordeifel Nature Reserve. The modern en suite rooms have TV and most have balconies. Lift, bar, restaurant and a special feature – the large lakeside terrace for drinks, cakes and ice creams
