    Rhine cruise

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We arrived by boat from Rudesheim which was a fantastic experience. On the boat we had commentary about all the castle's and little villages on the banks of the river Rhine and cost us 13 euro each to get to Koblenz. We boarded at 09h05 and arrived in Koblenz at 13h00

    Koblenz is easy to reach by rail. Just about one hour from Cologne or Luxembourg. Consider buying a Reinland Pfalz ticket which allows unlimited travel on local trains for a day. Cost is only €23 for up to 5 people, great value.

    catching the train from Koln

    I caught an IC train from Koln. The journey took an hour and passed some nice scenery on the way and indeed Remagen looked worth a stop off on a future visit.

    The train was vert smart and comfortable as was the jouney.

    When you arrive at Koblenz outside the station is the tourist office and a bus station.

    There is a bus service to/from the deutsches Eck.

    Koblenz is easily accessible by all kinds of transport.
    You can get there by car on Autobahns A3, A61, A48. The airports Frankfurt, Cologne and Hahn airports are all less then 100km away from Koblenz.
    The most romantic way is the get there on the Rhine or Moselle.

    KD Ferry

    We used the KD Line ferries and the local trains to get around while we stayed on the Rhine.

    The boat from Bacharach to Koblenz took around 3 hours, and it stopped at most smaller towns along the way.

    The train from Koblenz back to Bacharach took about half an hour.

    Our Eurail Ticket...after a beating...

    We took the train from Interlaken to Bacharach (via Basel and Freiburg). It took us around 6 hours to get there (but we stopped in Basel over night too).

    From Bacharach we took the train to Hoorn (Holland) which took about 7 hours.

    Intercity train

    I took this train from Oberwesel to Mainz.

    The photo shows the 2nd class on the upper decker. It was around 16:00, not rush hour yet, also Oberwesel is a small town, any train stop at Oberwesel is NOT an express train.

    Koblenz is between Frankfurt and Cologne. So the best way is by plane and then by train.
    You can go by train or bus from Koblenz to nearly everywhere. Citis like Amsterdam, Brussels, Luxembourg, Trier, Cologne etc. are not far away form Koblenz. Infos to trains unter http://www.bahn.de

    boats on the Rhine

    Many boats travel up and down the Rhine making it so easy and enjoyable to explore the wine villages and castles in this region.
    It makes for a relaxing day trip or two - see more in travelogue.

    by peteyjim Written Aug 25, 2002

    The best way to and from and also to get around, is by paddle steamer! Just cruise down the river to all the towns, like St Goar and Bacharach.

    Don't forget to try the wine!
