The Caravan Writers’ Guild sets off for Germany
First ever German study trip to take place in June
Chairman Nigel Rosser, vice Chairman Barry Norris and the members of The Caravan Writers’ Guild (CWG) – the UK & Ireland’s only professional body of specialist writers for caravan and motorhome owners – are embarking on their first ever study trip to Germany.
Thirty Seven writers will take part in the two week tour, which runs from 8th – 22nd June. It has been devised by the Caravan Writers’ Guild in collaboration with and full support of the German National Tourist Office. The tour is also supported by the tourism regions of Rheinland-Pfalz, the ancient city of Trier (Germany’s oldest city), Bavaria, Moselle and Rüdesheim (also renowned for its wines). The itinerary includes stays at three of Germany’s leading campsites (with visits to several more), plus cultural and gastronomic sightseeing trips including castles, vineyards, a variety of Germany’s finest inns and restaurants, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, plus a river cruise through the Rhine and Moselle wine regions. Germany has thirteen such regions which produce wines of international acclaim. Modern vinotheques and wine cellars offer many opportunities to sample a wide variety of wines to suit all tastes.
Campsites in Germany have earned an enviable reputation for their high quality facilities, as well as being excellent value for money. The choice of locations – with over 1,000 sites to choose from – is tempting and diverse. The CWG members will be travelling in vehicles of all styles and sizes, through spectacular scenic routes and pitching in some of the most beautiful locations in Europe.
Organisers Alison & Terry Owen of the CWG said: “We are absolutely delighted to have this unique opportunity to discover Germany and all it has to offer. Our sponsors and partners and especially the German National Tourist Office, have gone out of their way to help us plan the tour. As a result we have an action packed programme of events designed to give a glimpse of some of Germany’s best treasures and to inspire our members to write about them in the UK/Ireland and beyond.”
