      We are arriving late night in mid-May in Koblenz and staying for two nights. So we will have a whole day in Koblenz and next day we will take a Rhine river boat to MainZ. Question: for the one day we are in Koblenz, are there tours available to near by castles and view points that we can take? Or what do you recommend we do in Koblenz for one day?

      Stops on a Rhine Cruise

      by akskibunny Online Now Aug 25, 2013 at 1:36 AM

      We're going to take a day cruise on the Rhine from Koblenz to Rudesheim and can fit in two quick stops along the route. Having a hard time deciding which towns to see. We've been to Bacharach on a previous trip and will be staying in Oberwesel one night on this trip. Any suggestions for stops and what we should make a point to see? Thanks!

      Hi everybody,

      especially at the last VT Europe meeting in Krakow, I've received so much help from so many people that I would very much like to invite you to my lovely part of the world, the Rhineland. There could be no better time to visit it than summer 2011 because there is a large festival in Koblenz, the "Federal Garden show"

      I've selected 3 dates so in case you are interested in signing up you can indicate which date you prefer. Please follow this link:

      The feedback will help me determine which date to set. If you follow the link you will also see a very rough and preliminary idea of what the itinerary might be like.

I want to park the car in Koblenz, ride a train to Bingen and then cruise the KD back to Koblenz. Is this a feasible plan? Is Bingen the best place to board the KD? Is there a better way to coordinate my travel plan?

      I visited a fantastic home furnishings shop in the main shopping area of Koblenz in the summer & I can't remember the name of it. The shop sold some pretty unique furniture including a desk made from an aeroplane wing etc and it also sold oozoo watches and some lovely jewellery.

      Can anyone help me? What was the name of the shop? I would love to check out their web page or call them about a particular piece of furniture that I saw but all my internet searches have failed so far :(

    • Help me choose a castle to tour, please?

      by Daphnita Online Now Apr 11, 2010 at 9:35 AM

      I'll be spending the day cruising the Rhine with the KD from Rudesheim to Koblenz on a Sunday next month. I've decided, in spite of the bad rep and after much deliberation and research, on Rudesheim as the village to visit. I'd also like to visit a castle, but I need some recommendations of castles that are accesible by taxi or bus or whatever from the docks in one of the villages that the KD touches. I don't want to hike up to a castle, because I'm traveling alone and not in the greatest shape. I very much wanted to visit the hotel castle on top of Oberwesen, but I understand that it's only allowed to tour on the outside.

      Thanks in advance!

      What to do in Koblenz on a bad weather day in December

      by nomad7890 Online Now Oct 16, 2009 at 7:24 AM

      Where are some good places to go in Koblenz if there is bad weather? Museums, monument tours, cafe's, connected stores ... any good ideas.

      I have visited Koblenz in the summer and fell in love with the town. I also know what to expect as far as walking - will return to Koblenz the first week of December with a person who does not like to take long walks.

      The tickets I'm purchasing are not exchangeable, they must be used on the train originally booked. We will be in Koblenz approximately from 11 AM to about 18:00. Ideally it will be cold, maybe a bit cloudy, but perfectly great and walkable (Plan A) ... however in the event it's rainy and windy, I need Plan B.

      So if the weather is horrible - what are some good suggestions on what to do from 11 to 18:00?

      Karlsruhe to Koblenz early December - need advance train tickets?

      Based in Karlsruhe, would like to take a day trip to Koblenz early December this year. I've been looking at the Die Bahn site and am starting to wonder if it would be a good idea to pre-purchase these seats - looks like things are getting full. I would love to return here for a day in the winter.

      Also, although I know weather cannot be predicted (I have already looked at all the weather web sites and know the averages) - do you have any experience on how snowy and *windy* it gets?

      Would a visit from around 11 AM to about 6 PM be fine, or will it start getting way too cold after 5 PM (sun down) ?

    • K-D schedules

      by Garfieldtx Online Now May 8, 2009 at 10:09 PM

      Hi, I have been reading great info on the forum and i am planning on a Train/Ferry trip on 5/16 from Frankfurt to Koln.

      1. Frankfurt airport -> Rudesheim or Bingen
      Q -My flt arrives at 7:20am and i need to get to either of these 2 places by the train asap to catch the KD ferry. Which pier is easier and quicker to get to?

      2. Rudesheim or Bingen to Koblenz
      Q- I read the K-D schedule posted on the web but it appears that they only have ferry departs at 9:15, 10:15 and 14:15 (fm Rudesheim) and 9:30, 10:30 and 14:30 from Bingen. Orignally, I want to take the ferry to go all the way to Koln, but it seems like only the 10:15 ferry have the 2nd part (Koblenz to Koln) of the ride. I doubted if I can make it to either of these piers fm the airport to catch that. Now i also read some conflicing info about K-D runs hourly during the peak season. Is it true?
      I also read that there is no need to buy the ferry ticket in advance and there are 20% discount off for train & ferry ticket. How and where can i get it?

      3. From Koblenz to Koln,
      I can spen a nite in Koln or Koblenz and then need to take another train ride on Sunday late afternoon to go to other city. Is there anything to see in Kolenz at nite? Or it is better off to just go to Koln straight?

      4. Questions on the DB, if I get the discounted ticket but end up missing the train, can I still use the ticket? Is it worth it to spend more on the 1st class than the 2nd class ticket?

      5. Can I take my carry on lugguage with me on the K-D line?

    • Hotel suggestions? Visiting Lahntal and Moseltal

      by elbegewa Online Now Feb 14, 2009 at 1:50 PM

      We are going to spend 3 days visiting the Lahn and Mosel Valleys in late May.

      Where to stay?
      We prefer:
      * mid priced small "local" hotels or pensions of gasthauses with a friendly homey atmosphere.
      * My wife and I are in out mid 60's, very physically active
      * We'll have a car, so parking will be a consideration.
      * Prefer either a small town or Koblenz where we can explore in the evening, then drive/explore the Mosel and Lahn during the day. Then on the last day drive up the Rhein to Frankfurt.
      * We're figuring somewhere in the general area of Koblenz would be central for us.

      Do you have suggestions?

      The hotels we are considering so far are:
      * Zugbruecke
      * Merkelbach
      * Weinlaube
      * Schloss (in Koblenz)
      * Burg Liebenstein (further away, in Kamp-Bornhofen)
      * maybe something near Bad Ems?
