    Pontoon bridge

    by Nemorino Updated Jun 19, 2013

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    From 1819 to 1945 there was a pontoon bridge across the Rhine River, where the ferry boat now runs.

    It consisted of 36 floating pontoons, two or three of which had to me moved out of the way every time a ship wanted to pass.

    I always thought pontoon bridges were temporary things, put up by an advancing army and dismantled soon afterwards, but this one was used for 126 years before it was finally destroyed at the end of the Second World War.

    Bus Nr. 1

    by Elena77 Written Dec 18, 2008

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bus Nr. 1 (direction Deutsches Eck) will take you from the main station to some of the main sights of Koblenz and vice versa (direction Oberwerth on the return journey). The bus half-hourly leaves at the bus terminal facing the main station and stops, for example, at: the municipal theatre, the town square called Görresplatz, the landing stages of the Rhine ferry, Deutsches Eck and the old town (Kornpforte).
    A single ticket from the main station to the old town costs 1,50 Euros, a day ticket (for 1 person) costs 3,40 Euros. A group up to 5 people should buy a group ticket for 6,00 Euros (on weekdays this ticket is valid from 09:00 am to midnight, on weekends it's valid all day). Tickets can be purchased from the bus driver.

    Using the bus

    Upon arriving in Koblenz we took the mini train and the train driver then told us about the bus that we should take to the station as it was quite a distance from where we arrived by boat. The cost was 1.50 euro for the bus and worth every cent as it was pouring with rain.

    The Rhine Ferry

    by Nemorino Written Jan 6, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This ferry boat, run by a man named Hans-Jörg Kräber, goes back and forth across the Rhine River between Koblenz and Ehrenbreitstein all day from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. during the summer months, and from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. in March and April.

    Second and third photos: Views of the Rhine River from the ferry.

    Fourth photo: The ferry man getting ready to dock as the boat approaches the landing on the Koblenz side.

    The ferry leaves from Konrad-Adenauer-Ufer, near Rheinstraße.

    We took a car ferry from one side of the Rhine to the other when we wanted to get over to Rudesheim... It was fairly cheap and a nice quiet little trip across the river...
