Synopsis

The author, a travel journalist, was born and lives in Germany. This guide focuses on the Rhine & Mosel Valleys, including Mainz, Cologne, Bonn, Trier, Worms, Speyer and more - with the kind of inside detail that only a resident can provide. The Rhine valley is one of Germanys prime tourist attractions. The most interesting part of the valley is between Speyer, with the largest Romanesque cathedral in Germany, and Cologne (Köln), with the largest Gothic cathedral in the world. In between is the Rhine of legend with a castle or castle ruins every mile. The equally beautiful Mosel River is a meandering stream in a steep, narrow valley. Trier has the largest collection of Roman monuments in Germany. Hundreds of small towns are barely changed from the Middle Ages. We visit the best ones. The author provides innumerable tips on special discounts available for travelers (some 20 on train and bus travel alone) and tells how to save on gas (cheapest on Mondays, most expensive on Wednesdays), as well as virtually everything else, with inside information on getting the best hotel rooms at the best prices, the best deals and the best food at restaurants. For every area of the country, full information is supplied on how to get around, the best shopping, the foods and the recommended places to eat, where to stay, from charming guesthouses, hostels and campsites, on up to the most luxurious hotels. Includes town and country walks, cycling, fishing, canoeing & kayaking, Rhine cruises, wine tours, concerts and other cultural events - it's all here! As a Pocket Adventure Guide, it shows you how to experience everthing the country offers more intensely and directly than most travelers know how to do - seeing the place close-up through adventures, both cultural and physical, including in-depth encounters with the people. Other guides lack our level of detail, our adventure perspective and our emphasis on direct experience of the country. We provide an insider's knowledge that you won't find in other guides.
