Best place to stay for Rhine and Mosel day trips

Jump to last reply

After visiting friends in England, we plan to fly to possibly Frankfurt in late August. My question is which town to stay in to do mini river trips. We want to do a one day trip on the Mosel. If I understand what I've read, the stretch from Cochen upstream to Beilstein or Bernkastel is the prettiest. For the Rhine the stretch from Rudesheim to St. Goar is best.
I read that we should spend a couple hours in Boppard and Burg Eltz.
Please comment.

So where should we locate ourselves (Trier, Cocoen, Rudeshein?) and what trains would get us back to lodging at the end of each day.

Is flying in to Frankfurt best. We'll take a low cost carrier out of Gatwick so we may have other options closer to these boat trip I have not considered.
