This morning we cruised through the most beautiful stretch of the Rhine, lined with castles on both sides. This area is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A game of chess up top. Much fuss about departure procedures. A walking tour of Cochem City followed by a tour of the Reichsburg Castle. Built 1,000 years ago, the imposing castle dominates the city from its hilltop location. An independent tour of the quaint Moselle town and its medieval town gate, various churches and friendly marketplace. A return to ship for the Captain’s Farewell Reception and Dinner.
