Germany Trip to the Rhine River Valley

Jump to last reply

Hello All - would just like some comments on my idea for part of our 2 wks in Germany. We are flying into Frankfurt in early June and I was thinking we would travel by train to Bingen. I am thinking we could spend 5 days in Bingen and use that as our starting and stopping point each day. Day 1 take the boat (that is included on the rail pass) on the Rhine North to Koblenz and stop at some of the small towns...Bacharach, etc. and then take the train back to Bingen that evening from Koblenz. Is that too much for one day if we include touring castles and such. The second day I was thinking we would take the train to Koblenz and then take the same kind of boat trip down the Mosel visiting the big Castle there...Burg Etz I think it's called. Again - is that too much for one day?

Also - is it reasonable for a day trip to Koln from Bingen by train and tour around the City and return to Bingen at night?

I don't want to rush anything so have no trouble spending two days on the Rhine between Bingen and Koblenz. My husbands idea is to just "wing it" and stop wherever we feel like it each day but I like having a place to return to each night especially to house my luggage! :)

Thanks everyone appreciate thoughts and comments.

Julie
