A leisurely breakfast. A walking tour of Bernkastel, known for its winemaking, cobblestone streets and timber-framed houses. We walked to the Vinothek in Kues and visited the historic vaulted cellars of St. Nikolaus’ Hospital and learned about wines from the Moselle Valley, which produces more than 130 types. Returned to Odin for a short nap and lunch. It’s time to start to prepare for disembarking. We disembarked in Wintrich for a tour of Trier, Germany’s oldest city. We saw the Roman amphitheater as well as the massive Roman baths. We also saw the wonderfully preserved Roman city gates called Porta Nigra, another UNESCO World Heritage Site; Trier Cathedral and the Church of our Lady. Then we found a local pub where we had more beer!
