Nice tour on the Rhine along the vineyards and castles. You can eat on board and the staff is friendly. Explanations in German and English. The access pontoon is easy to find. For our part, departure from Rudisheim, a charming town with half-timbered houses and teeming with restaurants and other beer gardens.

plan on the earliest possible flight to get off at the castle and inspect it (admission for a fee seems to be around 10th to pay in the castle) and then return on the next flight after visiting the castle. From the boat there will be views of other castles. Near the marina there is a cable car with beautiful views of the Rhine and the vineyards. At the top is a huge monument. You can take the cable car up there (on foot back) There and back There, one cable car. Then walk 1.5 km along the mountain and down to the other side of the mountain along another cable car. But on the other hand, there is nothing special to watch. She walks among the trees. On the way to the cable car (almost next to it) there is a wine shop in the basement. The Japanese keep it. You will understand by the hieroglyphs on the sign. They have about 20 varieties of wine. Free to try any wine from 8 to 40 per bottle. It is not necessary to buy after the trial.

Easy to book and pay online. Awesome trip up the Rhine to view lots of castles and the beautiful architecture of the houses. One and a half hours is perfect timing, can have a drink while enjoying the view. We caught the boat at Rudesheim, which is such a lovely town with so much to do for the day.
