Rhine River Boat Tours

by sor62 Online Now Jun 21, 2008 at 10:57 AM

I will be purchasing a German Rail Pass and I can use it for travelling on the KD rhine river boats. Do I need to make reservations or will I just have to take
a chance that the boat will be full. How busy are the boats during July? According to Rick Steves there's no need to make reservations as the boats are never full.

    Pretty theoretical thoughts if you need to reserve or not.
    You just cannot reserve with KD at all.
    I've never heard about passengers had to be returned because of a full boat.

    We used them in Sept last year. All we did was present our passes to the booth at the ferry landing. I think we went there an hour or so before the boat sailed and then wandered the town for a while but I don't recall any required time limit as far as checking in in advance. At that time the boat had plenty of room and we had a nice dinner on board in the evening.
