Land Tour: Luxembourg
11/16/2021
11/16/2021

Multilingualism is one of the assets of the Grand Ducal capital. Visitors may be ushered in with a hearty ”Moiën”, as the natives stick to their mother tongue, ”Lëtzebuergesch”, now as before. Placed in the heart of Europe, Luxembourg has matured into an economic and cultural center. The modern edifices of the European Institutions on the Kirchberg Plateau or the futuristic bank head offices lining Boulevard Royal bear witness to progress the city has made. The media world has found a home here, just like the circles of the specialist conventions or international conferences. Many great names, from Goethe or Victor Hugo to William Turner, used to think highly of Luxembourg hospitality and open-mindedness. Therefore, visitors should feel at ease in a cosmopolitan city stamped by the spell of smallness, visible at a glance.

The St. Martin Wine Cellars, underground wine caves and cellars that have been cut into rock, offer tours and wine tasting to visitors. Visitors can also enjoy a glass of local wine while boating on the Moselle River.


A tow path through the Moselle Valley is a great place to go for a bicycle ride. A tourist train can take vistors on an hour tour of the beautiful town or you can walk and stop in a restaurant with an indoor and outdoor patio during the summer.

Arriving in the Moselle River village of Bernkastle, Germany, is like stepping back in time.

The cobblestone streets, enchanting architecture and steep green hillsides enhance the storybook ambiance of this picturesque little village.

Cochem
11/18/2021
11/18/2021

This medieval town, located in one of the best wine regions of the Mosel Valley, is crowded against the left bank of the river by a huge vineyard-covered hill. Because of its large number of inns, Cochem is your best choice for an overnight stopover between Koblenz and Trier.

The town is a typical wine village, with tastings and festivals. But the biggest attraction is Reichsburg Cochem, a huge castle at the top of the mound behind the town. The original 1027 structure was almost completely destroyed by Louis XIV's army in 1689. It has since been restored according to the original ground plans, and its medieval ramparts and turrets create a dramatic backdrop for the town.

Erected between 1877 and 1883, this huge monument symbolizes the re-establishment of the German Empire and unity. From Rudesheim, one can either take the foot path to the monument or the cablecar leading to the top. The panoramic views from the top are spectacular. Rudesheim is also famous for the Abbey of St. Hildegard. Some think the building is older than it is, but truly, it was built at the beginning of the 20th century.
