Default Rhine Valley - Lorelei to be revamped

The end of the old Hitler Youth hostel and amphitheatre.


If the hostel isn't covered with swastikas, isn't it just a youth hostel?
Of course, replacing that with a hotel will bring in more money. Messing
with the view apparently has the same object. What will that do to the
view from the river? Does anyone care?

How do their prices compare?


This type of thing is bound to be bumped up because of the costs of the
"expert"

the button for the prices results in a 404

Both were built for and used by the Hitler youth. They both fit in well.
Credit where credit is due. :-)

Of course, replacing that with a hotel will bring in more money.


Especially if it is 20 floors high and has a zip wire running from the roof to
the other side of the river. :-)

I do. I like it as it is.


So do I, hence my question.

Really? Verbatim copy-and-paste inluding typo:

"Price per Person from 1499pp (Based on 2 sharing)
Single Cabin Price from 2249pp
(SIngle cabin price is based upon one person in a double cabin)
(Price based upon coach transport - for air add 150pp, rail add
130pp)"

"from only 1499"

leads to:

http://www.focustravel.co.uk/antique...--pricing.html

Result 404

Verbatim copy-and-paste inluding typo:

"Price per Person from 1499pp (Based on 2 sharing)
Single Cabin Price from 2249pp
(SIngle cabin price is based upon one person in a double cabin)
(Price based upon coach transport - for air add 150pp, rail add
130pp)"


I see that is from "Pricing and Cabins"

but I didn't scroll down to find that having failed already

TBH these look good prices given the included experts.

I wish I was finding similar offers for other cruises
