Ferry boats

by alt627

Do any of the ferry boats make stops at some of the towns (such as Rudesheim), along the way so you can walk around? I'm arriving in Mainz in August and I'm really interested in seeing the romantic Rhine valley, but I'd like to be able to walk around some of the towns instead of just seeing it from the boat only.

Help ??

There are probably various possibilities as I know that boats do run a kind of 'bus' line along the Rhein.

here's an example:

Yup. The boat won't wait for you, but you can get off, visit the town and then board the next boat to continue your cruise.

The most scenic part is between Rüdesheim/Bingen and Koblenz. This is also the part with the most frequent boat services.
Biggest boat company is KD
http://www.k-d.com

You can make stopovers, but e.g. with KD your ticket has to be marked before leaving the boat for the stopover.

What you can e.g. do is to travel by train from Mainz to Bingen, boat to Braubach, visit Marksburg castle there, return by train via Rüdesheim (stopover) and Wiesbaden to Mainz. You can use for the train part a Rheinland-Pfalz Ticket. EUR 20 for 1 person. EUR 28 for 2-5 persons travelling together. This ticket covers all regional trains in the state Rhineland-Palatinate and a bit beyond (Rüdesheim - Wiesbaden). It covers also the trams and buses in Mainz. Rheinland-Pfalz Ticket is valid
Mo-Fr: from 9am till 3am next day
Sa,Su: from midnight till 3am next day

With KD you'll get a 20% discount if you can present a valid train ticket.

there is a trainline at each side of the river and many villages like Ruedesheim, St.Goar, Kaub will have car-ferries.
Those ferries go from one side of the river to the other and back all day long only between the 2 same places.
I am sure you wanted to know about cruise-ships or excursion-ships and they will not wait, but go on after a few minutes and you might catch the next one to continue.
Your best chances of day-cruises are between Ruedesheim and Koblenz. The Rhine south of Ruesdesheim is NOT worth the trouble !

Travel Tips for Rüdesheim am Rhein

A few moments of quiet

by shrimp56

Riding the Seilbahn to and from the Niederwald over the vineyards provided amazing moments of peace between people talking in the gondolas that pass you and the traveling of the cable over the support. It was a nice respite from the bustle and noise of the town. The silence except for the wind when riding the Seilbahn.

great sculptures at the Niederwald Denkmal

by globetrott

Monuments of that type look a bit outdated for our time, and they would also deserve some cleaning and restorations.
The "tooth of time" seems to kill them, and maybe they are only sad to see, that most people get there ONLY in order to have the great panorama-view...

Siegfried's Mechanisches Musikkabinett

by globetrott

Siegfried's Mechanisches Musikkabinett inside of Broemserhof , not far away from Drosselgasse.

I did not dare to put in some coins, but I may imagine that most of the machines are still working fine that way, and performances of these musicboxes are also part of every guided tour through the museum.

entry fee is 5,50 Euros
and 3 Euros for students and children.

By all means take the chairlift

by wadekorzan

There's a chairlift going from Oberstrasse (2 minutes walking from the Drosselgasse) that takes you up to the so-called "Niederwald Denkmal" (Lower Forest Monument). It is also known as the Germania Monument.

The chairlift runs constantly until 5, 6, or 7 PM depending on when you are there, and it takes 12 minutes to the top, 700 feet above the Rhine River. The ride is so beautiful, so peaceful...you are dangling right above the vineyards for which the town is so famous.

Roundtrip ticket costs 6 Euros, and it is well worth it.

Beautiful Castles

by sargentjeff

Most have an impression of castles being large stone buildings surrounded by water with a drawbridge entrance. In northern Italy Villas were the local castle, but in the Rheingau many of the castles take on a less intimidating appearance, and would be a great place to call home. One such castle sits about 100 meters from the mighty Rhein River, and even though it's not open to the public remains an impressive sight from the outside. I guess if I lived here I wouldn't want tourists wandering through my living room either. The tower is 38 meters high, and towers over all other buildings in the city, and the tower walls are over 3 meters thick!
