Germany (Rhine Valley, North Rhine-Westphalia , Lower Saxony), Linz
Take a journey through picture book scenery of rolling hills, fairytale castles, terraced vineyards and picturesque villages to discover the spectacular Rhine Valley, steeped in history and legend. Not just for rail enthusiasts, this break is for anyone who appreciates wonderful landscapes, old world charm and a friendly welcome. Based on the left bank of the mighty River Rhine, Remagen is the perfect base to explore this picturesque region and its Rhine promenade is ideal for a stroll to watch the endless flow of busy barges and pleasure boats pass by.
Konigswinter & Drachenfels Railway
From the lovely riverside resort town of Königswinter, take a 1.5km ride up to the legendary Drachenfels on Germany’s oldest rack railway. Enjoy the comfortable ascent up an incline of (in parts) 22% to admire the breathtaking views from the 321m summit. Continue to Linz, the ‘colourful town on the Rhine’ with its cobbled alleyways and pretty timbered houses.
Vulkan Express & Koblenz
A ride on the narrow gauge Vulkan Express is a very special experience. Although named ‘express’, it is actually takes 90 minutes to travel 11 miles up the Brohl Valley into the Eifel mountains. From Engeln continue by coach to Koblenz, famous for its ‘German Corner’, the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle rivers. The mighty Ehrenbreitstein Fortress towers above the town at 118m above the river.
