Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 22, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Seven tour categories offered Cruising on The Rhine A cruise ship passes Oberwesel on th e Rhine with Schoenburg Castle on the hill- top. This is the heart of the romantic Midd le Rhine district. Romantic Rhineland Returning visitor finds little change in 36 years By HARRY BERRY OBERWESEL It was In 1936 that I last visited Ober- wessel on the Rhine. It also was my first trip abroad. The mayor met our party on arrival then and in the market bade us welcome and concluded his speech with the hope that the Germans and the Now In Stock for You A selection of: HOLIDAIRE Trailers TRIPLE E-E-E Trailers TRIPLE E-E-E Campers TRAVE-L-MATE Campers for every imported truck Foreign Car (Lethbria'ge) Ltd. 1102 3rd Ave.S.

But the Rhine to me remained a romantic wonderland picturesque towns and villages dot the banks; the steep terraced vineyards surmounted at frequent intervals by impos- ing castles; the music, the dan- cing, the wine festivals, the happy cheerful nature of the Rhenish people. It was the most exciting and glamorous time I had in my young life and the vision re- mained with me over the years. I kept meaning to return, but it was not until recently more than 36 years later that I revisited Oberwesel. Within two hours of leaving London on a British European Airways jet for Cologne I was boarding a German train. As we sped southwards following the Rhine valley my excitement grew and when I stepped out at the small station I looked around and was thrilled. The Rhine- land had not changed. No ugly skyscraper hotels or blocks of concrete apartments had been erected to spoil the country- side. Everything was exactly as I had remembered. Oberwesel on the left bank and two miles upstream from the famous Lorelei Rock, is in the heart of the romantic mid- dle Rhine district. It is a wall- ed medieval town with eight- een ancient towers still stand- ing and overlooked by the Friday Junt 22, 1973 TH!

E you are fond of walkini you can follow the quiet foot paths into the nearby country side of woods, murmuring trou streams, and meadowland. Or you can spend pleasant hour just sitting in the Rhineside gardens, sipping wine, breath ing the wine-like air, and wat ching the river-traffic glide by One way to enjoy more o the scenic beauty is to take a trip in a Rhine Yoi can make this last a whole da; or you can get off to explor any of the romantic old towns And should you become so fas cinated that you miss your boa you can, for a small suppla ment, return by train and still enjoy the scenery. Wine festivals are celebrat- ed in practically every Rhine- side town and I attended one at Bacharach another beau- tiful town just a few miles south of Oberwesel. In the mor- ning the village band played Rhine songs in the market square and people were sing- ing and dancing. In the after- noon there was a parade through the narrow streets with color- ful floats, each representing a wine-producing town. The Germans who gather in their hundreds from nearby towns and villages make a point of enjoying themselves. Like the Welsh they love sing- ing. There is little, if any, CHARLOTTETOWN, Prince Edward Island Atlantic Tours Limited, with offices in Saint John, Halifax, Moncton and Fredericton, has been ap- pointed the exclusive whote- aler for Summer Wings fly-in iracations to PEI, a unique ser- es of package tours on Prince Edward Island.

In a major consumer adver- ising campaign that has never before been developed for a domestic top, the Department of the Environment and Tour- sm and EPA are promoting Prince Edward Island as a single destination during peak season, rather than as part of a Maritimes tour.

An exception is Alitalia which operates a direct Toronto-Italy route. It will increase its flights to one daily June 22 from four flights weekly. From June 15 Into August an Alitalia spokesman says the flights are sold out "and then the traffic starts to come back." But if transatlantic travel ap- pears to have dropped off for most airlines, both Air Canada and CP Air report an unex- pected demand for flights within Canada this summer. Bryan Renwick, CP Air vice- president of marketing, said in an interview domestic bookings are 23 per cent ahead of last year. An Air Canada spokesman at- tributed the demand for domes- tic flights to new excursion fares introduced by Canadian airlines. Devaluation of the dollar anc reports of rising costs in Eu- rope probably are the reasons many Canadians are not trav- elling across the Atlantic this summer, said Andre Boily of Air France. "I think many of them have just made up their minds to stay at home where at the least the dollar is worth 100 cents.' Centennial Golf Weekend- er.

Tourists can learn how a farm operates, help with chores, or just relax in the peaceful coun- tryside.

Atlantic Tours can also ar- range other activities such as horseback riding, sight-seeing, harness racing, golf, harbor cruises, deep-sea fishing, etc. The initiation of Summer Wings fly-in vacations on PEI part of a major new policy of the PEI government, with the active support of Premier Atex Campbell and his government. Summer Wings grew from an announcement in a speech from the throne regarding develop- ment of PEI's tourist industry, which is the province's fastest growing industry. The funda- mental policy decision is to in- crease the number of air tra- vellers to the Island, because studies have shown that air tourists to PEI spend about three times as much aad stay twice as long as auto tourists. Although Summer Wings is being promoted primarily in Canada in 1973, it will be avail- able in much of the U.S. through major participating airlines in that country.
