Rhine Christmas South

ITINERARY

Visit: Cologne, Mainz, Strasbourg (Kehl), Koblenz, Cologne 

Il est ne le divin enfant: "He is born, the Heav'nly Child," intones the choir in the mighty nave of Strasbourg Cathedral.  The Gothic arches seem to lead up into the heaven to produce a scene that never fails to raise the goosebumps.  Christmas Mass in this world-famous Cathedral is an unforgettable experience. The medieval lanes of Mainz and Koblenz are somewhat quieter and more down-to-earth.  Timbered houses, fairy lights and the aroma of baked apples warm the heart, while the wine punch warms the belly and the mind.  But poor Lorelei sits on her wintry rock and looks out at the Danube.  The best way to recount the legends about her is over baked Christmas delicacies and hot chocolate.  With cream on top.
