Assist Please: A'dam/Cologne/Mosel Valley/Aachen

Jump to last reply

Next month I am visiting my son who lives in Amsterdam and we are planning a long weekend trip of two or three overnights. Currently we are thinking of Cologne to Mosel Valley to Aachen with Cologne being a half day visit moving on to the Mosel Valley for our first overnight. I would like suggestions as to length of stay/where to stay for each of the remaining two areas and anything else you'd like to add.

During our time in the Mosel Valley I'd like to do a boat trip, see castles both standing and in ruins, walk and explore villages--love looking at architecture and gardens, maybe visit small museums--I really like house tours, drink beer and wine, and eat--not at the foodie level though :) Not a shopper.

In poking around previous posts I've seen Koblenz and Cochem frequently mentioned, where would you stay? In researching I get distracted by all the other beautiful places to experience and know from previous travel that I'd prefer to concentrate on smaller areas than spend time running around and I suspect that already the scope of this trip is too wide for our time frame. That said, I hear the upper Rhine is pretty spectacular too...would you swap out Mosel for upper? Would you take Aachen out of the mix and save for a separate trip? An overnight trip to Aachen had been planned for our last visit to Amsterdam and didn't happen because we had so much else to explore given that it was our first visit; there's just so much to see!

Thank you.
