Arrival at Frankfurt Airport or Frankfurt Hahn Airport. Short transfer to Mainz and check in at Hyatt Regency Mainz 5*-hotel. Dinner will be served at restaurant “Bellpepper” with open show kitchen. During summer you can enjoy culinary specialties from the barbecue on the terrace, overlooking the Rhine.
Breakfast at hotel. Discover Mainz, the historical wine capital, on a guided tour through the city’s history from the beginning until today: the Roman period, the Cathedral, the Old Town and the modern Mainz city centre. After lunch (optional), a visit to the “Kupferberg Sektkellerei”, built in 1850 on a site where the Romans cultivated vines and built cellars. The Kupferberg family expanded the cellars into 60 seven-story-deep vaulted cellars - the deepest in the world. See the “Traubensaal” (Grape Hall), a tremendous example of the art nouveau style. Dinner will be served in the restaurant “Kasematten”. It is housed in a XVII century historical vault with exposed stone walls inside.
Breakfast at hotel. Short travel to Oppenheim, a historical town on the Rhine known for its wines and festivals. With its maze of underground passageways and vaulted cellars, Oppenheim's old quarter is like a piece of Swiss cheese. Walking through this extensive labyrinth is a spine-tingling experience: descend the old stone steps and you'll feel like you've travelled back in time to the Middle Ages. After lunch (optional) you may relax with a guided walk through the vineyards and finally a unique picnic with wine tastings. Enjoy the tranquil beauty of this vast, sun-kissed region. Dinner will be served in a typical wine restaurant.
Breakfast at hotel. Short travel to Bingen, with a round-trip-cruise on the Rhine. A lot of castles are placed majestically on the hills along the route.
