The Rhine-Rhur region of Germany has a rich cultural history and industrial heritage that are admired around the world. It has also been the focus of turning points in European history throughout the ages, from the Roman Empire through to being one of the powerhouses of modern Europe that it is now. May 2023 marks the 80th anniversary of Operation Chastise - the famous 'Dam Busters' raid. We will visit two of the three targets of Barnes Wallis' bouncing bomb. We will also explore the 2,000 year old city of Cologne and the city of Wuppertal with its unique suspension railway. A cruise on the Rhine from Bonn to Linz is also included. Half-board accommodation is provided at the modern H+ Hotel in the centre of the pleasant town of Bochum. All rooms are en-suite with air conditioning, TV and free Wi-Fi. Crossing via Euro Tunnel.

Excursions: Mohne & Sorpe Dams; Rhine Cruise; Cologne; Wuppertal.
