Spend an unforgettable New Year break on the Rhine, as you take in some of this iconic river’s most essential cities, , together with a call at financial powerhouse Frankfurt, on the River Main. You’ll depart from Cologne and sail south to the famous wine town of Rüdesheim, set amongst the vine-clad banks of the river. Continue your journey south, and into France and to the pretty Alsace capital of Strasbourg, home to Europe’s oldest Christmas market. Turning north, you’ll head for the picturesque historic city of Mainz on New Years’ Eve, for the chance to see the Rhine lit up with a wonderful midnight fireworks display, and then follow the Main to Frankfurt, birthplace of the famous writer and poet Goethe. Tie up in Frankfurt overnight and then rejoin the Rhine to make a final call at pretty Koblenz, at the confluence of the Rhine and the Moselle, before returning to Cologne.
