Red line Tour

Day 1: Saturday
The Red Line tour leaves from Paris for a delightful scenic journey
through the rolling countryside of the Champagne region, famous
the world over for the sparkling white wine produced here. Enjoy
seeing the historic attractions of provincial capital Reims, including
the city’s cathedral – a key national heritage site, where coronations of French kings took
place from the 11th century onwards.
History and tradition are equally evident in your next location: Luxembourg, the world’s
only remaining Grand Duchy. After arriving in refined Luxembourg City, you’ll be introduced
on foot to the main places of interest, including the Place de Constitution and Pont Adolphe,
before having time for further exploration on your own. (B)
Hotel: 3* in or outside Luxembourg City
Day 2: Sunday
Today we leave Luxembourg behind and head across another
European border into Germany. The first stop is historic Trier, Germany’s oldest city
and the birthplace of Karl Marx. You’ll have the chance to see from the outside the
house where the influential philosopher was born, which now functions as the Karl
Marx Haus museum.
Your walking tour then takes you into the centre of Trier; here you can look around the
city’s impressive cathedral, where the celebrated Holy Robe – said to be the tunic of
Christ – is preserved and occasionally displayed. Trier is also known as ‘The Second
Rome’ (Constantine served as an administrator here for 10 years), and significant
legacies of the once-great empire remain today. The highlight is undoubtedly Porta
Nigra, the best-preserved Roman city gate north of the Alps, which you’ll get to see
and photograph.
After an exciting morning in Trier, you’ll drive on to Koblenz, famous as the location of
the confluence of the Rhine and Mosel rivers. Here you have the option of indulging in
a relaxing lunch alongside the water, then afterwards you can also choose to add on
a scenic Rhine boat cruise for some memorable city vistas. Back on dry land you’ll
drive through the wine-making town of Rüdesheim, and stop to see the bronze 19th

Day 3: Monday
The morning begins with a leisurely drive north-west from
Frankfurt to Bonn, the capital of the former West Germany
until reunification. The national government is now run from Berlin, but Bonn retains
a rich history that is well worth exploring. Discover the city’s secrets on an orientation
stroll through its streets, walking past highlights such as the Rococo-fronted town hall and

popular model town of Zaanse Schans* (see box below). Next, you’ll head from the quiet
countryside to the cosmopolitan city as your journey takes you back to Amsterdam.
After visiting a well-known diamond factory, where you’ll see the unique cutting techniques
that have been practised here since the 16th century, you can take an optional hour-long
pre-dinner canal cruise, which is a great way to discover more about this unique European
city. After disembarking you’ll walk to one of the city’s grandest areas, Dam Square, where
the Royal Palace is located and the Queen’s birthday celebrations take place. You’ll have
photo opportunities here, free time for shopping or further sightseeing, and then round the
day off with dinner. (B)

exhibition of beautifully coloured and scented displays of spring flowers - most notably
millions of tulips. This replaces the visit to Zaanse Schans. For more information see www.

Day 5: Wednesday
After leaving Amsterdam in the morning you’ll head south
across the border into Brussels, the Belgian capital and political
centre of the European Union. On the way, the tour stops to see the distinctive
Atomium monument, a cell-shaped structure of stainless steel spheres and tubes built for
the 1958 World’s Fair. In the centre of Brussels itself an orientation tour will call in at the
exquisite Grand Place, as well as seeing the famous impish Manneken Pis statue.

Day 6: Thursday
Paris is your oyster over the next two days as you enjoy guided
tours around one of the world’s most celebrated cities. Your
Parisian adventures get off to a spectacular start with a drive along the
famous Champs Élysées to the Place de la Concorde, which played such a key part in the

You’ll take in another significant historical building next as you head to L’Hôtel National des

including Notre-Dame Cathedral and Pont Alexandre III.
