culinary day tour from Bonn

Sure, you are in Germany for business rather than for food – but why not taking advantage and exploring the traditional dishes and wines of the region? Our guided tours will give you a glimpse of the cultural heritage and show you the gems off the beaten path.

Taste of Riesling

Taste of

Riesling

The middle Rhine is not only a world heritage site with spectacular scenery but also the cradle of the Riesling grape. Since most of the produced wine is drunken in the region, not a lot gets exported, so you rarely find it outside of Europe. The grape is known for its good aging abilities, a bottle of Riesling might age for 25 years and still be an outstanding wine. In order to support the aging capabilities, the work in the vineyard has to be done very carefully, mostly by hand. During our wine tour we join a known winemaker on his way through the vineyard, he explains the specialties of the grape and the terrior, sure enough we taste his Riesling.

Not only the Rhine is known for Riesling, also the Moselle valley has its share and what would be more educating than comparing the Riesling from Rhine and Moselle? The winery visit at the Moselle reveals the differences in terroir and climate, but also the common and unique taste of Riesling.

No visit at Rhine and Moselle can be done without seeing a castle

….and some exercise between the tastings can’t hurt, so we climb and explore one of the castles along the way.

The tour ends with a 3-course dinner at the restaurant “Deutschlandreise”, which is famous for offering typical German dishes and pays a lot of attention to local and traditional producer.

Bridge at Remagen and Ahr valley tour

Bridge at Remagen and Ahr valley tour

The capture of the bridge is known in the annals of the war as the “Miracle of Remagen”.  General Eisenhower stated that “the bridge is worth its weight in gold”. Today the bridge hosts the “Peace Museum”, an exhibition which recounts the history.  In a small video room a documentary done by the Royal Military Academy of Sandhurst is shown.  One is reminded of the bridge’s construction, its capture and the battles for the bridge involving German, American, Belgian and British soldiers.

History combined with tradition – after the museums visit we will tour the Ahr valley and taste the famous “Spätburgunder” from different wineries.

The tour ends with a 3-course dinner at the restaurant “Deutschlandreise”, which is famous for offering typical German dishes and pays a lot of attention to local and traditional producer.
