We will be based at the pleasant village of Kamp Bornhofen which is set along side the mighty Rhine itself overlooked by two castles known locally as the “feuding brothers”.
Our holiday hotel - The Wagner is an old Harry Shaw favourite. There is a bar and restaurant area and all rooms have private facilities. The cuisine here enjoys a fine reputation and there will be entertainment on several evenings.
