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.

We took the day long river cruise departing Koblenz @ 9ish, which seen us terminating in Rüdesheim. We got off the boat here for about a half hour and then made our way back to Koblenz. The total cruise was about 35 euros per person return and seen us arriving back in Koblenz around 8:00 at night. The departure area... More

I enjoyed taking the boat, but I started in Bingen and went downstream to Boppard. You can view all the castles and see them easily - not just a quick view from a speeding train. Even on the cold, drizzly day we went, it was enjoyable.

You can enjoy a sightseeing Cruise on the Rhine with the KD Rhine Pass. We took a train from Koblenz to Rudesheim first and then boarded the KD Boat. You can "hop on...hop off" at any of the little villages along the way. This is the most scenic part of the Rhine and a lovely way to spend the day.... More

For the time and distance covered, it felt like it could have been more informative. Also, we got on board and chairs were stacked in the middle of the deck. People just grabbed chairs and put them wherever they wanted to sit, making for a bit of a chaotic jumble. The price was good, though, and it was nice having... More
