Into Hahn and have day & half to travel - car or train for 3

We will be flying into Hahn and our 17 year old would like to see Berg Eltz. We fly out of Frankfurt on the 6th and have a hotel the night of the 5th. We need to figure out if we should rent a car to see the area and visit Berg Eltz or take the transfer to Frankfurt and then take a train.

Also where to stay for 3 adults for the night of the 4th.

Any help is appreciated! My son speaks German and I would love a family run hotel.

You could stay overnight in Cochem.

http://www.cochem.de/tourismus/en_index.php

You can get there directly from Hahn Airport. Bus #750 to Bullay train station, train to Cochem.

For this route the tariff of the local public transport association applies. With three persons a mini group day ticket is with EUR 21,20 cheaper than single tickets.

From Cochem its just 17 minutes by train to Moselkern. From where it's an easy 40 min walk to Burg Eltz.

Completely agree with abalada's suggestion.

If you want a private-home B&B, Frau Hilken's place in Cochem's old town is wonderful. 2 doubles and one single room there. Have your son call her to reserve - she's elderly and doesn't do English or computers but she knows how to serve up a fine breakfast. Figure 20-25€/person.

Walk to Burg Eltz:

Strongly suggest you take in the falconry show at Cochem's Reichsburg Castle. Walk uphill from Frau Hilken's place to the castle. Shows are at 11, 1:00, 2:30 and 4pm (no shows on Mondays.) See photos:

Will you come this week.? Burg Eltz only opens on 24/03. It is a spectacular view even from the outside but maybe not worth the effort given your limited time.

I have tried the number many times and even my German student who is visiting tried and still we constantly get a busy signal no matter the time of day. Are you sure this is a good number?

Thanks,
