Train travel in Germany

Jump to last reply

I received great advise on a trip my husband & I are taking to Germany, through this forum. We are planning to take the train from Bonn to Rudesheim, settle into a hotel, take train to Koblenz and then a boat ride back to Rudesheim.
The next day we plan to take the train to Burg Eltz, then to Cochem, then to Mozelkern and a boat from there to Rudesheim.
We have not decided what we should do the next and final day of our trip. Do you think it would be worth adding the boat ride from Koblenz to Mainz?
Then we will take the train from Rudesheim to the Frankfurt Airport.

What would be the least expensive way to buy our train tickets? Is there a day pass? Is it better to buy a ticket at each train station for each leg of the journey? Is it complicated to figure out the timetables?

Also do you recommend any hotel in Rudesheim? Inexpensive but nice. I have heart issues and cannot walk far so would love to find something close to trains and boats.
Thank you so much. We are excited to see Germany in July. Joyce & Alex
