Music Tours to Rhine & Moselle Valleys

  • One of our most popular locations with interesting destinations
  • Both hostel & hotel accommodation

The Rhine and Moselle Valleys are both very popular and successful destinations for our young performing groups. These two regions sit next to each other are bound together by the confluence of the two rivers at Koblenz. The Rhineland, with its sweeping vineyards, quaint halftimbered houses and imposing castles, is steeped in legend and history. The Moselle Valley, quieter and less scenically dramatic than its neighbour, is no less interesting; the wine town of Cochem has a lively atmosphere and an imposing castle, while the Roman city of Trier with its mighty city gate, the Porta Nigra, makes an interesting excursion.

The hostel has a central courtyard which can be used for meals or socialising.

Also in its own grounds, Traben-Trabach youth hostel is situated some 20 minutes’ walk from the centre of this charming small town. This modern, well-run hostel offers 170 beds, with all rooms having private facilities. Students’ rooms in this hostel are 4-bedded, with bunks. Leaders’ rooms also have bunks, usually with one pair of bunks per person.
