SHORE EXCURSIONS View all excursions
A tour and a tipple are the two main ingredients on this excursion. You’ll head to the Eberbach Monastery, which is around half an hour’s drive from the port in Mainz. When you arrive at this Gothic-cum-Romanesque abbey, a guide will usher you inside for a tour of the time-worn cloisters and vaults. After you’ve learned a bit about the building and the monks who occupy it, you’ll head to the candlelit wine cellars. You’ll get to sample six different varieties, and there’s a shop where you can buy your favourites. When things wrap up, you’ll drive along the banks of the Rhine back to the port.
