Take "Castle-Express" (a miniature train) to go to the Rheinefels castle. Its an easy way. The "train" goes from Marktplatz - end of the main street and near the Rhine riverside - to Rheinfels Castle Carpark
Ferry St. Goar - St. Goarshausen (Loreley-Ferry)
The ferry runs every twenty minutes between St. Goar and St. Goarshausen between 05:30 am (06:30 am on weekends) and midnight. Between 11:00 am and 06:00 pm the ferry just goes back and forth which means that the service runs around every 10 minutes.
The stop in St. Goar is in the south of the old town, a short walk away from the train station. In St. Goarshausen, the ferry stops next to the main bus station which is even closer to the train station than its counterpart in St. Goar.
