Went from Cologne to Bonn got off and had a couple of hours in Bonn then travelled back to Cologne. The boat was clean and pleasant, we managed to get a seat on the top deck (nice day) and the staff on board were friendly and polite. The views on that stretch are not spectacular (no castles etc.) but there... More

We took an early train from Cologne to Bingen and caught the boat downriver (based on other tripadvisor advice (thanks)). It was easy to get to the boat even from the main Hbf station in Bingen (after missing the local connection) with the train office giving us directions and a map. The cruise was confortable - you can buy items... More

We got on at Rudesheim and sailed all the way to Koblenz. It was a leisurely cruise with all amenities on board. Drinks were very reasonably priced and service was friendly. A lovely way to spend an afternoon with stunning scenery and lots of castles!

We took the slower paddle-boat from Boppard to Rüdesheim. The entire journey lasted around 4 hours, but it was an excellent way to sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery of the Rhine. While the first part of the journey wasn't the most scenic, once we hit near Bacharach we saw plenty of castles, ruins and vineyards. Do try some... More

You could take day cruises up and down the Rhein River and get off and on whenever you wanted and spend as much time in the little villages along the Rhein. The day cruises were very inexpensive and each day we could take the cruise in a different direction and we even took it to the Maus River

Efficient and reasonably priced. We travelled on the smaller Willy Schneider, as was a quieter day and weather whilst warm was not necessarily bright. Staff were friendly and food was simple (but decent and well priced); drink was very reasonably priced. Journey took apx 1 1/2hr and was very pretty. On a clearer day I would been able to take...

We took the slow local train from Cologne to Bingen (3 hours), short walk to the Rhine River and KD Launch point, and bought discounted tickets (show your Deutsche Bahn ticket and get a 20% discount), we had purchased a Schönes Wochenende Ticket for 44 euros, which is good for one day for up to 5 people traveling together on...

What a splendid way to pass an hour in Cologne. We booked our passage via Tripomatic and had no problem turning in our voucher for tickets. We sat on the top deck, had chairs and a table to ourselves, and enjoyed the leisurely ride up and down the Rhine River. The speakers gave information about the various sights in German,... More

This is a lovely way to travel on the Rhine River, and you get to see so much more than driving. It is also quite relaxing enjoying the beautiful views, and is well worth doing.

Having used the K-D line further up the Rhine, I got the sort of quality trip I expected, with a chance to view all the riverside sights and bridges in appropriate comfort and space.
