Full description
Experience a castle tour in the Middle Rhine Valley, where fine wines from ruby red Pinot Noir to shimmering golden Riesling are grown. Discover one of Europe’s oldest trade routes along former toll castles and robber barons' nests, where Victor Hugo, Goethe, and Heinrich Heine are onboard in spirit. Explore beloved places of the Middle Rhine Valley that inspired the poets who created Rhine Romanticism. This section of the Rhine, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2002, is home to more castles than anywhere else. Admire Rheinstein Castle, Reichenstein Castle (Trechtingshausen), the ruins of Ehrenfels Castle, and the fabled Mouse Tower of Binger Loch. See the Nahe river flow into the Rhine and marvel at Klopp Castle before continuing on to the Niederwald Monument with the Germania and the Niederwald Temple in Osteinpark. Let the myth of the Rhine Romanticism enchant you. Admire the red wine region of Assmannhausen with its famous Pinot Noir vineyards as well as the flourishing town of Bingen with the beautiful Rhine park of the 2008 horticultural show and Rüdesheim with the famous Drosselgasse.

Booked this as we were travelling from Belgium and had an overnight in Rudesheim on our way to Austria. I thought if we left early we could squeeze in an experience in Rudesheim so booked this trip. Easy to find embarkation point and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

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.

Tour sympa sur le Rhin le long des vignobles et châteaux. On peut se restaurer à bord et le personnel est avenant. Explications en allemand et en anglais. Le ponton d'accès est facile à trouver. Pour notre part, depart de Rudisheim, charmante ville aux maisons à colombages et qui fourmille de restaurants et autres bier garten.
