Rhine Ablaze

The Rhine Valley is truly beautiful. Grand castles and sprawling vineyards cling to its slopes and charming towns and villages wait round each bend.

The Rhine Valley is truly beautiful. Grand castles and sprawling vineyards cling to its slopes and charming towns and villages wait round each bend. This idyllic destination also showcases a unique annual event when each autumn, celebrations and firework displays erupt when the wine harvest is over and it’s time to try the new wines.
