Castle Weekend Tour Germany And Luxembourg
Weekend Tour visiting to medieval castles and meeting great people! We will visit three remarkable castles in the beautiful frontier of Germany and Luxembourg. Drachenburg Castle is on the Rhine River near former Germany capital Bonn, Cochem Castle is on River Mosel, and Vianden Castle is on the Our River, in Luxembourg’s Ardennes region. Romantic Itinerary Day 1 Schiphol -> Drachenburg -> Cochem (Germany) Departure from Schiphol, we head directly to Drachenburg Castle in Germany. Drachenburg Castle is a castle-like estate on the Drachenfels in Königswinter, built from 1882 to 1884. In 1986 Drachenburg Castle was declared cultural heritage, now regards as one of the most significant castle buildings of the late 19th century in Germany. Reichsburg Cochem, a massive hilltop imperial castle - the largest in the Mosel Valley - that once guarded this stretch of the river. Built in 1020 and later destroyed by the French in 1689, much of the castle was restored in the 19th century in the Neo-Gothic architectural style. Day 2 Hotel in Germany -> Vianden Castle -> NL (Luxembourg) After breakfast at a nice and spacious hotel with balcony view, we drive to Vianden in Luxembourg, Vianden is on the banks of River Our. There we can visit the feudal castle, with towers high above the city. You can take the chairlift up to the Belvédère, which is at River Our at 450 meters altitude. In the afternoon, we will head back to The Netherlands.

Wat we doen


This is a group for anyone interested in taking long weekend trips out of Amsterdam, to bounce around Europe. Please join us also at:


We'll meet twice every 3-6 weeks (or "on demand"). The first meeting is for the large general membership to brainstorm city ideas. After the city or cities have been finalized, perhaps the second meeting(s) is a (fun!) afternoon for small groups to independently announce, plan and book travel/accommodations/itinerary to the new European city... Trips will typically last 3-5 days (including travel days), and hopefully designed to visit the occasional festival (i.e. Oktoberfest / San Fermin) or sports event (i.e. Wimbledon/French Open/soccer)... Group size per trip should probably be at least 4 people. Ideally, we can all board the same airplane flights! If groups become "too big", no need to worry; everybody would be welcome to have their own private tour activities. But then hopefully everyone attempts to meet up at least once during the trip!

Budget-wise, trips will generally involve hotels, not hostels. That said, this group is still mainly intended for adventure, not necessarily for luxury, and so fits young or even mid-level professionals particularly well. Singles, couples, Dutchies and ex-pats are equally welcomed.
