Procedure of the event
Most of the ships are leaving from Rüdesheim between 6.00 p.m. and 8.00 p.m. and return to Rüdesheim around midnight. The journey leads past numerous castles into the fabled Upper Middle Rhine Valley (UNESCO World Heritage since 2002). Like pearls on a string line the forts, castles and romantic ruins turn up on both sides of the Rhine between Rüdesheim/Bingen and Koblenz. Around 50 ships join the flotilla that glides majestically below perhaps the most elaborate fireworks to be seen in Germany. The surrounding valley erupts in a final climactic display of pyrotechnic art. Immerse yourself in the magical atmosphere created by the rain of stars and fountains of fire reflected on the water of the Rhine and the thunder of the fireworks echoing from the steep banks. The culmination of Rhine in flames is the great final firework fired from a platform in the middle of the Rhine between Rüdesheim and Bingen. Then the ships put back to the exit in Rüdesheim or Bingen.  A supporting programme takes place in town from Friday to Sunday.
