A Trip down the River

A nice relaxing trip down the river so you can see views of Dom etc. Food and drink is available which is traditional German. Not expensive so worth while

We travelled with our 3 children with KD Rhine from Rudesheim to Koln (with a 30 minute taxi from Koblenz to Remargen given no direct ferry service). Best to travel downstream starting either at Mainz or Rudesheim and hopping off at a few spots along the way to visit some of the villages, Burgs and Schloss along the way. The... More

We took the ship from Bingen to Saint Goar on Tuesday, September 8th. We carried our luggage with us on the ship. It was fantastic. Ship was excellent. Rhine river was absolutely beautiful. Scenery was unbelievable. Castles along the way were beautiful. Not very crowded the day we went. Will probably go again and take a Rhine river cruise for... More

Spent a pleasant and relaxing afternoon on the Rhine with KD Cruises from Bonn to Linz (return). The four hour round trip was very enjoyable with great scenery along the way and lots of photo opportunities. Very well equipped and comfortable boat with restaurants, bars and lots of outside seating space. Food and drink was very affordable and service was... More

While the tour itself wasn't anything to write home about, it was a really relaxing way to spend an hour and a half after walking around Cologne all morning (and climbing the belfry at the Dom - check out my review for that as well). It was informative and enjoyable and I was able to get some great pictures and... More

We went on the panoramafahrten, a one hour trip touring the Rhine. It was a beautiful day and we loved the commentary, very informative in English as well! The view was spectacular, plenty of seating and very affordable, particularly with a discount for it was my birthday!

We boarded the boat in Linz on a rainy morning. We had hoped to take the other line - Bonner which we missed by minutes to had to take this one. The boat was older and not as nice as the other line. Upon boarding we were first on and I showed my ticket to the girl (turns out captains... More

One of the best stretches of the Rhine is between Bacharach and Boppard so we took a KD cruise from Bacharach. We found it a great trip with lots of great scenery. The cruise boat was very comfortable and although it was a warm day we found it cooler on the river. The cruise vessel had food and drink making... More

Cruised from Mainz to boppard which took about 4 hours. As often noted the first part is not picturesque but still relaxing. One advantage is you get on before the bigger crowds who join up the river. Good service and easy to link up with train at boppard for trip to cologne.
