The ferry goes these same routes and is much cheaper! You can go town to town or skip a few and take the train back.

We took this tour as part of our larger tour with Globus. It was an enjoyable morning. We saw so many well preserved castles and castle ruins in this short 1 hour trip. The commentary was helpful and there were plenty of types of seating. The boat was very well kept. Definitely a highlight of this part of our tour

This boat is big enough to have a good chance of scoring a table outside to see the view (granted it was a weekday). The cruise stops at many towns along the way, and your ticket allows you to re-embark twice. We chose to have lunch at St. Goar where we had an hour before the boat came back. And... More

This is a beautiful ride...after every 5 minutes there is a beautiful castle! You see pretty quaint villages, stunning wynyards, castles etc. If you are in Frankfurt do visit Bingen and do this cruise...its totally worth it@

We absolutely loved this tour! The boat was so smooth and relaxing, the views were amazing. Where you can see so many castles back to back. One castle was over 1,000 years old. Highly recommend this!

From Frankfurt airport take train to the main station and then take a regional train to Rudesheim platform 24. Don't forget the umlaut when typing the name for your ticket at the station. Boats sail at 10 11 and at 2 .If you have time Rudesheim is pleasant to stroll around . I took the ship to St Goar and... More

This river cruise is a great way to see a lot of beautiful scenery and castles - all in one day's time. We ordered breakfast in one of the restaurants that was very good. We also stopped off in St. Goare and went to the Rheinfels Castle for some great views while enjoying a glass of wine at their outdoor... More

We got on the boat in Bingen. The dock is a GOOD WALK from the train station. Be sure and find out exactly where to get the boat before you do this trip. We asked and got directions in German from a shop keeper. It would be better if you already have plotted this on a map or take a... More
