    Scenic Viewpoint (My Ar$e)

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Passing back along the Autobahn near Koblenz it crosses the river Mosel on a pretty impressive bridge. And just by the bridge are signs for the "scenic viewpoint".
    Well, we couldn't resist - this was a VT outing, and pictures had to be taken! So off we went to the viewpoint... We parked, and we walked and we looked... and this was it :-S
    Really, it looked better from the Autobahn!

    Unique Suggestions: Go to the "onsite loo".

    Fun Alternatives: Stop by the side of the Autobahn with your hazards flashing - it's a much better view.

    Wow, What A View!

    Apparently, in Germany, the police pull you over from in front of you. What those cops probably thought was a high speed chase, to me was a leisurly rive on the autobahn. It took me like 15 mins to realize they wanted ME to pull over....that was sooo funny.

    The wine village of Rudesheim is very touristic and very crowded. The famous Drosselgasse (Thrush Lane) was virtually impassable - better to visit some of the quieter places on the Rhine like St. Goar.

    I was shocked when I saw the postcard selection at a postcard stand close to the "Deutsches Eck". They sold postcards showing Neuschwanstein Castle - which is in Bavaria hundreds of miles away from Koblenz. I wonder do tourists really buy these postcards here????

    Unique Suggestions: Well ... if you dont want to send a postcard of Koblenz buy a postcard showing the Rhine valley or the Loreley! At least that's close to here!

    Fun Alternatives: How about a postcard from Koblenz ? ;-)

    Language tricks

    by solopes Updated Dec 28, 2013

    My idea was to travel from Koblenz to Bingen (with the car in the boat) and proceed from there to Strasbourg. I asked (in English) at the ticket booth a ticket for "a car with two adults and two children".

    The lady gave me the tickets and I paid them.

    Moving to the boat, I discovered that there was no car access, and went back to the lady asking her where to enter - "No car, no car".

    How to argue in German that I demanded a ticket for the car and thought that I'd paid for it?

    It was hard, the discussion, but I couldn't leave the car behind.

    After a babylonic nightmare, the lady decided to accept back the tickets, but returning only 90% of the charged price.

    No it was not a great experience, my Rhine cruise!
