At each of the stops you are invited off the ship to explore at your leisure. Including Koblenz, where the Rhine and Moselle meet. Rüdesheim, why not take a cable car ride up to Niederwald for a truly stunning view of the Rhine. Lastly, Mainz known for its medieval squares set against the backdrop of Cathedral St Martin.
