From Frankfurt: Rhine Valley Day Trip

1. From Frankfurt: Rhine Valley Day Trip

Discover the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Rhine Valley, with its vineyards and picturesque towns and villages. See the mighty medieval castles – the area has the highest density of such buildings in the world. Marvel at the stunningly beautiful "Lorelei-Felsen," or Siren's Rocks, and enjoy fantastic views over the valley from the Niederwald monument. In the summer you can ride on the Assmannshausen cable car down into the valley (optional), have lunch in a marvelous restaurant on the banks of the Rhine (included), and then take a wonderful Panorama boat trip to St. Goarshausen, past the famous Loreley. Try fine wines on location in a small tavern and or just lose yourself in the picturesque little town of Rüdesheim. Please note that the tour will only stop at Rüdesheim if time allows.  In winter time it may be possible that steamers do not operate in case of bad weather or water conditions. In this case, you will visit a castle instead. You'll travel back to Frankfurt by bus when the tour is finished and will be dropped off at the meeting point.

The bus trip was fantastic with views of Frankfurt’s cityscape and of the countryside leading to the boat tour of the Rhine River itself. The tour guide had an excellent personality and was very helpful in taking group photos. The views from the Rhine River were fantastic with the many gorgeous castles along the shore. The food at the restaurant, eaten before boarding boat, was amazing, and the wine tasting after the boat cruise was both informative and enjoyable. It made me want to live in Germany.
