This morning enjoy a guided bus tour of Germany's 'capital of carnival'. Cologne has a long and illustrious history, which stretches back to Roman times. The cathedral is Germany's most popular attraction and it is easy to see why. Hugely imposing, with twin steeples over 500ft tall, the gothic masterpiece can be seen from miles around. Your guide will explain all about its construction, and how it took over 600 years to complete, as well as all the features and history, which makes it such a special place. We continue to the Fragrance Museum of Cologne - home of the popular Eau de Cologne No 4711 which was launched in 1709 by the Italian perfume maker, Farina. In the afternoon we head south into the beautiful Rhine Valley visiting the city of Konigswinter. Here, we board the Drachenfels Bahn Rack Railway that will take you up to the beautiful Castle Drachenberg. Enjoy a stroll in the gardens and the breathtaking views over the Rhine Valley before a little guided tour through the castle. Tonight dinner is taken at a nearby beer cellar close to our hotel.
After a leisurely breakfast we depart Cologne late morning. We travel to Belgium, arriving mid-afternoon, in the beautiful medieval city of Bruges in time for dinner and our overnight stay.
A morning free to explore this lovely city, often referred to as 'the Venice of the North', before an early afternoon departure to Calais and our ferry home.
