School Trips - School Germany tour-Rhine & Mosel
Most school groups see the Rhine Valley as a natural starting point to make their students aware of German life and culture. As a result this is the most popular destination in Germany. The river Rhine flows all the way through Germany from the Swiss border in the south to the Dutch border in the west. The area known as the Rhineland to British tourists is the stretch of the river from Rüdesheim to the north of Koblenz. The Rhine Valley is a gorge with vineyards and castles adorning its steep slopes. The Germans know the area as the Romantic Rhine, as it is steeped in legend and history, as well being extremely attractive. For us, the best way to appreciate the river is from a river cruise boat
