Our tour leaves Paris for a pleasant picturesque trip through the Champagne region's rolling landscape, renowned all over the globe for the sparkling white wine generated here. Enjoy seeing the historic attractions of the provincial capital Reims, including the city's cathedral–a main domestic heritage site, where from the 11th century onwards coronations of French kings took place.
In your next place, history and tradition are equally obvious: Luxembourg, the only surviving Grand Duchy in the world. After arriving in sophisticated Luxembourg City, the primary places of concern, including the Place de Constitution and Pont Adolphe, will be brought to you on foot before you have time for further exploration on your own.
We are leaving Luxembourg today and heading to Germany across another European frontier. The first stop is historic Trier, the oldest city in Germany and Karl Marx's birthplace. From the outside you will have the opportunity to see the house where the influential philosopher was born, now functioning as the Karl Marx Haus museum.
Here you can look around the impressive cathedral of the city, where the famous Holy Robe –said to be Christ's coat –is maintained and sometimes displayed. Trier is also known as' The Second Rome' (Constantine served here as a ten-year administrator), and the once-great empire's important legacies stay today. There is no doubt that the highlight is Porta Nigra, the best-preserved Roman city gate north of the Alps, which you can see and photograph.
You'll drive on to Koblenz after an interesting morning in Trier, renowned as the Rhine and Mosel confluence place. Here you can enjoy a relaxing dinner by the water, and then you can also choose to add some memorable town views on a picturesque Rhine boat tour. You'll drive back on dry soil through Rüdesheim's wine-making town. Then it's on to Frankfurt am Main, where you'll find Römerberg's delights, a charming plaza with a characteristic medieval town hall as its centerpiece.
We're going to create our way to Bonn, West Germany's former capital. We'll visit Beethoven House and Bonn University, then head to Cologne to see the iconic Cologne Cathedral, followed by a walk along the Schildergasse shopping street.
