  • Frankfurt-Hahn to Koblenz

    Koblenz Transportation

    Despite the fact that there is a perfectly good airport located between Koblenz and Cologne, which has a direct rail link to the city most visitors will come to Koblenz via the airport at Frankfurt Hahn. There is a simple reasons for this : it is bloody cheap. Transport to and from the airport across perfect tank-driving country is provided by an...

  • (KD) Boat trip through Rhein valley :-)

    A boat tour on Rhein river, especially in the section between Bingen and Koblenz (Coblenz), is something highly recommended and a truly unforgettable trip! Even during rain and cold weather! I just came back from such a tour with friends from Australia and they had a fantastic time. Well, that’s the to-do part and I have covered this already in the...

  • Ferries: Crossing Father Rhine in style

    Most of the (Rheinland-) Pfalz’s eastern border is formed by Rhein river. So it is quite logical that crossing states into or out of Palatine is not always easy. It often means detours to the next bridge or ferry. Now I have counted the Rhine crossing options of whole Rheinland-Pfalz: 18 ferries, 6 motorways and 14 streets (4 of them alone only for...

  • driving your own car along the river...

    When driving your own car or motorhome through the Mosel-valley you have to choose carefully the best side of the river.You may drive almost the whole river on both banks on a road very close to the Mosel / Moselle, but only a few bridges and some carferrys will force you to decide in advance, which road to take.When driving from Koblenz to...

  • The Mosel-Wein-Express in Cochem

    In Cochem it is certainly a good idea to take the tour by the small street-train, that is shown on my picture: The Mosel-Wein-ExpressThe tours will start on a regular basis on the big square in the very centre of Cochem, next to the Mosel-bridge .The train-ride takes 25 minutes and is 4 Euros and that price includes also a coupon for a small glass...

  • Going through the locks

    On the first night of our cruise we passed through three locks, but other than being aware of a period of quiet relief from the engine noise I didn’t realise what was happening. I was disappointed that I hadn’t had the chance to see our passage through the locks, and disappointed again when I learned that our return though them would also be during...

  • Some facts about La Bohème

    We were given a leaflet with various facts about our ship, La Bohème, and the cruise:Built in 1995Length: 110 metres ~o~ Width: 10.14 metres3 motors, each with 550 horsepowerCapacity: 80 cabins for 164 passengersNumber of crew: 26Our route:Strasbourg – Rüdesheim – Koblenz – Rüdesheim – Mannheim – StrasbourgTotal navigation approximately 700...

  • Car ferries and timetable

    While doing a search for our family trip in the area I finally found the timetable for car ferries and prices for a ride across the Rhine from many towns here: Unfortunately it's in German but it's not too hard to guess the basic info.

  • Rail Service

    The region offers a number of main and regional rail lines that offer access to most of the attractions. The German rail service's web page enables one online reservations and detailed information about connection times. Just visit the link below. The web page is also available in English.

Last ride is around 19:00 p.m., so if you want to go up the mountain after...

  • Biking

    There are lots of excellent possibilities for biking. You can make day tours (lots of hotels and bed and breakfast welcome bikers) or smaller tours. Just go to a local book store and buy a map. We made a part of the Radweg: Vom Rheim zum Wein (from Rhine to wine), but we did it the other ways, hahahaha

  • GPS-The Deus Ex Machina

    In my advanced age I have lived long enough to experience the greatest of travel miracles! Now available to the independent car traveller for business or pleasure is the Global Positioning System (GPS). Nolonger do you have to pore over the finest amps of countries and towns. No longer does the driver need one or two experienced navigators with...

  • Biking along the river Mosel / Moselle

    Biking along the banks of the river Mosel / Moselle is easy and also quite flat at most places.

  • Small ferries for passengers and cars at...

    There are several places along the river, where small ferryboat will take you and your car across the Mosel and mostly these ferry-boats are just big enough for 2-4 small cars and a few bikes.These ferries are operated mainly in summertime and only during daylight. Unfortunately I could not find any timetable. There is quite some cruise- and...

  • Arrive in Frankfurt/Hahn by Ryanair &...

    Frankfurt / Hahn is pretty close to Bernkastel-Kues, maybe 30km off the river Mosel ( BUT 150 Km off the well known airport of Frankfurt am Main)That way the whole Mosel-valley even has it's own airport with cheap airlines like Ryanair landing. The whole region around Hahn seems to live on that airport with small hotels and restaurants around it....

    Take the old Mercedes to drive you up to castle Landshut, high above the village of Bernkastel. Every hour on the hour this lovely vintage-4x4-bus will leave at the ship-station and take you within 35 minutes to the castle.

Therefore you eighter have to take a cruise without getting...

    There is a good train-line running along the river Mosel / Moselle and it covers mainly the left bank of the river . In addition to the trains you will have busses running at the other side of the river, and you may change from train to Bus at theese villages with bridges across the river :Bernkastel-Kues, Cochem, Trier, Koblenz,...

  • Ferry across the Rhine river

    Since the two bridges across the Rhine river are fairly jammed at times, it might be a good alternative to use the ferry between Leimersheim (Rheinland-Pfalz) and Leopoldshafen (Baden-Württemberg). It only takes 5 minutes and is not all that expensive - and it sure saves time!

  • ferry boats

    When travelling in the Rhine valley, you need a good map to tell you where you can go on the other side of the Rhine. There are not so many bridges, so you have to take the ferry (Faehre). Here the ferry boat from Ingelheim to Oestrich-Winkel.
