train from strasbourg to frankfurt
I will be in strasbourg next week and hope to travel on the train from strasbourg to frankfurt. I want to know the name of the train that travels along the rhine and you can see the castles?

>I want to know the name of the train that travels along the rhine and you can see the castles?
I don't get it. Are you going from Frankfurt to Strasbourg (straight to the south) or to the Middle Rhine valley where most castles are (Nort-west)? And what name do you want to know? Trains don't have names, they are not ships...
For schedules consult www.bahn.de
RE: train from strasbourg to frankfurt
The only way to see some castles from Strasbourg to Frankfurt would be to go to Mannheim and then take a local train to Frankfurt via Weinheim. There are a few castles . To see them,sit on the right, in the direction the train is going.
BUT: This is not the Rhine route with the famous castles!
Travel Tips for Strasbourg
Cathedrale Notre Dame
Visit the Cathedrale Notre Dame. Strasbourg Cathedral was once the tallest in Christendom (142m high). It is a dominating landmark of the city and offers fantastic views over Strasbourg and the surrounding countryside both sides of the Franco-German border. The cathedral, built of red sandstone, was begun in 1176, but wasn't completed until 1439. The stained glass windows date from the 12th to 14th centuries.
While visiting the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Strasbourg, we happened across the saddest gargoyle Sarah and I have ever spotted. We can only assume that since he was located at the bottom of the cathedral that he had done something terribly wrong and was banished to guarding the very bottom stones. In terms of gargoyle-dom, this must be one level above gum remover from the bottom of the ground. Hopefully he will have an opportunity to regain his stature at or near the top.
L'oeuvre Notre Dame
Place du Chateau, those very old houses, situated just between the Cathedral Notre Dame and the Palais des Rohan, host the workshops of the "Oeuvre Notre-Dame".
Here, since nearly a tousand years, companions, sculptors, stone workers maintain the Cathedral in a good shape, using the same techniques than their medieval precursors.
You can also find there a very ineresting museum dedicated to the medieval and renaissance periods.

Here is nice place to ride a bicycle ! I bought Strasbourg Pass so I rent a bicycle a day for free . I rode around the town and visited somewhere nice that doesn't write down in the tourist guide ! It is nice choose !

There were several good restaurants..I ate at the hotel restaurant (kammer-zell) directly on the Cathedral square and enjoyed wild boar, Alos the Ancienne Douane is close by and is a little on the Tourist side but great food, and a small weinstube called 'Le Port du Corbeau' this wasn't far from the Ancienne Douane..just the other side of the bridge along the canal..I arrived about 1900 and the place was empty..I was asked if I had a reservation, no, but was seater anyway...Within an hour the place was completely full...It is a well kept secret..reservations or early arrival is a good idea...The concierge at the hotel in Bitsche had recommended this place and it was a good tip
The Le Port du Corbeau was moderately priced, but had the traditional hand written menu and it was full of locals. Without hesitation the local Charcroute which is a mountain of sour kraut topped with several types of sausages and pork cuts..There are several variations, ie egg, fish, etc..but the secret is the sour kraut
