Sensational firework displays light up the sky and flotillas of river boats illuminate the pretty stretches of the River Rhine where thousands of people watch on in awe. Join this fabulous weekend break based in central Koblenz, at the confluence of the Moselle and Rhine rivers, and experience the 'Night of the Loreley - Rhine in Flames' extravaganza at the twin towns of St Goar and St Goarhausen from the deck of a river cruise boat complete with 3-course set dinner and music.

The boat returns to Boppard at approx. 23.30 where your coach will take you back to the hotel.

Perhaps take a stroll along the riverside promenade or head to the charming old town with its cosy wine taverns, narrow alleyways, romantic spots and a genuinely welcoming atmosphere. and the German Corner with its emperor monument are just a few of the sights to be discovered in Koblenz.
