    Rhine cruise

    by emmaben Written May 7, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A fantastic day trip is to take the boat from Rudesheim to Koblenz and admiring all the castle's along the way. The commentary gives you a lot of information about the sites along the way and it really is a great way to get to know the area from the river's edge.

    KD Lines day River cruises

    by mvtouring Written Mar 13, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We took a daycruise on the river Rhine from Rudesheim to Koblenz and I feel that this is a must on every itinerary !
    These cruises offers a lot of views of the castles along the Rhine plus other views which is not always possible to see when you are driving along the road , or even with the train.
    We took the ship to Koblenz and then took the train back.

    Ferry from Bingen

    by mvtouring Written Jan 25, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    "Delilah" from the GPS gave us wonderful directions from Triberg, but getting to Bingen, the funny lady told me to drive straight and in front of me was the river Rhein. I thought the lady was crazy, but discovered that I was suppose to drive onto the ferry that would take me to the other side. ha ha ha on me.!

    Train from Frankfurt airport

    Catch the S-Bahn from Frankfurt airport to Wiesbaden. Then transfer onto the local line that runs alongside the Rhine river. The DeutcheBahn information centre at Frankfurt airport were EXTREMELY helpful in sorting this out.

    Take the train to Rudesheim

    by shrimp56 Updated Aug 21, 2005

    The view as you exit the station

    Rudesheim is very easy to get to from Frankfurt and Wiesbaden/Mainz. For example it's 30 minutes on a Regional train from Wiesbaden.
    .
    There is one quirk to leaving Rudesheim, however. Because the tracks are so close together they only let you out a few minutes before the train is due to arrive, otherwise, as a warning sign says, you might get smashed by a faster train.

    Roamin' the Rhine

    by shrimp56 Written Aug 20, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are a number of cruises on the Middle Rhine that will allow you to enjoy some fresh air and some old castles at the same time.
    .
    Currently there are 3 companies offering trips of various lengths. We used the Bingen-Rüdesheimer Fahrgastschiffahrt and took their 1 1/2 hour roundtrip to see several castles. The link shows our trip. There are longer options and fancier boats, but for 7 euro we were happy campers.
    .
    We stopped at Bingen, Assmannhausen and I THINK Trechtingshausen and saw at least 4 castles and lots of vineyards!

    Take the Seilbahn to Niederwald!

    by shrimp56 Written Aug 20, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Seilbahn

    You'll see this wooden sign for the Seilbahn or tram to the Niederwald. Turn left when you see it, otherwise you will wander as we did! The trip is about 12 minutes each way and as of this writing was 6 euro per person.
    .
    You will also see it referred to as the Gondolbahn or the Cabinetbahn -- they are the same thing.
    .
    The boarding point is located on Oberstr. Go to the head of Drosselgasse and turn right.
    .
    On the website are described the many ways you can combine the seilbahn with hiking and a boat trip. Next time I will just take the gondolbahn up and walk down through the vineyards as I saw many others doing.

    Rhein Ferries

    Rhein

    If you are in the Rhein river area, you should take a ferry, relax on the deck with a glass of cold local white wine and watch the beautiful sights of the river. On both banks you will find charming villages, magnificient castles and of course, the vineyards.

    Daycruises on the Rhine

    Pfalz / Pfalzgrafenstein

    A daycruise on the river Rhine is a MUST ! Plenty of ships of all sizes offer such tours, mostly downstream to the Loreley.

    Such a cruise offers a lot of views, that you will never get, while driving the road along the river, or with the train.

    take the Carferry from Bingen

    by globetrott Written Jun 19, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is a ferry for cars and pedestrians from Bingen to Ruedesheim, as the next bridge over the Rhine is in Mainz ( 50km upstream) or in Koblenz ( more than 100 km downstream)

    This ferry runs almost all day , and we did not have to wait a long time before it strated to go across the river.
    It is a hard job for the captain of such a ferry to find out the right moment for the crossing, as there are plenty of small and big ships going up and down the Rhine - almost like on a highway...

    Get to Ruedesheim by car

    by globetrott Written Jun 19, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The very centre of ruedesheim is Off Limits for cars, as most of the streets are too narrow, and thousands of pedestrians are walking there more or less sober...

    Take one of the many pakings and pay about 1 Euro per hour.

    The closest bridge across the Rhine is in Mainz, about 50 km upstream - but there is a carferry from Bingen to Ruedesheim .

    take the small cable-car to the Germania !

    by globetrott Written Jun 18, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In Obergasse - not far from Drosselgasse you may enter a small cablecar in order to go up the mountain to the Niederwald Denkmal and the Germania-monument.

    There are only 2 seats opposite of each other in each cabin, and of course it is great fun to glide through the vinyards that way.

    take the Winzer - Express !

    by globetrott Written Jun 18, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In Ruedesheim you may take that small road-train in order to go through the small streets, that are off limits for cars.
    Most of these tours will include a ride up the mountain through the vinyards to the Niederwald Denkmal.

    That train also makes sense - just in case, that you are not used to the local wine, as there will be no taxis inside these small streets.

    LORELEY

    Loreley round tours

    Once in the Rheingau near Rüdesheim it is a must to do a boat tour on the Rhine to the Loreley. There are a lot of histories about this cliff in the middle rhine, so I think I better give you the link to search on your own a bit about it if you are interested. The Loreley has his fame especially from the poem of Heinrich Heine, there is a translation written by Mark Twain. You will all this find on the page mentioned, in several languages.

    Tour the Rhine valley

    The Rhine valley

    German highways are well-known and take you almost everywhere... Renting a car from Frankfurt-Hahn airport, we arrived to Rudesheim only after we understood that there are only 2 bridges crossing the Rhine river:in Koblenz and in Mainz. Otherwise you can cross the river by ferry from Bingen and a few other places.
