The Rhine, or Rhineland, is Germany at its most romantic. A UNESCO designated world-heritage site, this river valley has popped right out of a picture book. The Rhine is a land of vertiginous cliffs adorned with vineyards and fairytale castles on almost every hilltop. The region is rich not just with grapes but with myth and legend such as that of the Lorelei, the feminine water spirit, reputed to bewitch men causing their deaths.

But vineyards and legends are not the only characteristics of the romantic Rhine. This is a dreamscape of villages and towns with a rich cultural heritage epitomized in such towns as Bacharach, which dates back to 923. The perfect way to enjoy the region and the delightful St Goar, is to take a riverboat cruise. Picture yourself sitting in the sunshine drifting along while sipping a chilled glass of wine made from the vineyards that you’ll go floating by.  For the more active types however, the Rhine can alternatively be explored on hikes and bikes.

The Rhine is reached from Weeze Niederrhein Airport. Pre-book your hoppa airport transfer service now and let us transport you to your final destination, stress-free, with our bewitchingly reliable service.
