2023 Season

Active & Discovery on the Moselle with 2 Nights in Paris


cruise: WRFQ 10 days from Paris to Frankfurt
Begin your Active & Discovery river cruise vacation with two nights in romantic Paris. See the legendary landmarks of the “City of Light,” taking a city tour or enjoying a bike ride. Before embarking your Avalon Suite Ship® in Remich, join a guided tour to Verdun, known to history as being the field of one of the major battle of the First World War. An excursion to historical Luxembourg City offers unique and dramatic views, as the town is set on two levels—high above on straddling hills and dropping into two river valleys. Alternatively, you can choose a canoe excursion on the Moselle or a visit to Schengen with a tasting of local products. Enjoy a guided walk in the charming wine village of Bernkastel and taste some of the region’s best wines. Continue on the Moselle River to the picturesque town of Cochem where the Riesling grape is cultivated. Visit Reichsburg Castle, nestled among vineyards and offering breathtaking views of the town and river valley below. Next stop is ancient Koblenz, where you can enjoy a guided walk or visit a local brewery or adventure on a kayak excursion.

Sail onto the Rhine River to the quintessential Rhine valley town of Rüdesheim. Here visit the amazing Mechanical Musical Instruments Museum, and enjoy a stroll through the town’s famous cobblestone Drosselgasse lined with shops, restaurants, and lively taverns. Your river cruise vacation ends in Frankfurt, where you may join a guided sightseeing tour of the city, or visit the Frankenstein castle, or take a bike tour along the riverbanks of the Main and Nidda Rivers.

Join us on this Active & Discovery river cruise and experience the Moselle your way. Your Active & Discovery Moselle River cruise can be as active or leisurely as you like!
