Head to the pier in Koblenz to board the boat, then relax on the 2-hour cruise along the scenic Rhine, the longest river in Germany. Enjoy live commentary and take in the scenic panorama of the majestic castles, churches and vineyards on the shoreline along the way to Boppard.
Upon arrival in Boppard, a former Roman fort, visit any of the local attractions — like Karmeliterkirche, a Gothic church on the riverside; Bodobrica, an old Roman garrison with more than 20 defensive towers; or the Boppard Hamm vineyards, to name a few. Boats depart for the 1.5-hour return cruise to Koblenz at various times throughout the day, so spend as long as desired in Boppard.
Before or after the cruise, take a cable car ride to see the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress on the east bank of the Rhine. Step inside the cable car at Seilbahn Koblenz, then ascend over the Rhine en route to the historic Ehrenbreitstein Fortress. Head inside the magnificent fortress to explore at leisure, learning about its history as a strategic defense building during the Napoleonic Wars and World War I.
