I'll be traveling to Frankfurt in the middle of March. I would like to spend two full days in at least one city in the Middle Rhine. I will need to travel via train, and would like my trip to be under 2 hours from Frankfurt, without complicated train connections. I can't speak or read German. I like beautiful scenery and visiting quaint towns. I'm not into partying or nightlife. Suggestions?
The Middle Rhine appeals to me, particularly the St. Goar area. But, would mid march be a good time to visit this area? None of the cruises are running yet (they begin April 1). Could I tour this area comfortably on foot in March? Are cabs readily available? Would Rudesheim or another city nearer to Frankfurt be a better option for mid March?
Thank you in advance for your responses!
