Upper Rhine River cruise (one day)

Jump to last reply

My family and I would like to ask if someone could recommend a good starting point for a one day, round trip Rhine River cruise this Summer. We're staying near Freiburg. We'd need to leave our rental car parked at the boarding area in the morning, and of course have it ready to get back home in that evening. We see on http://www.rheinhafen.de/fahrgastschiff-karlsruhe/fahrtziele that there's a 7 hour cruise leaving from Karlsruhe, going up to Germersheim for 2.5 hours, (with a castle tour included in the price), and then coming back to Karlsruhe. The only dilemma there is not being able to reserve it until up to 5 weeks prior to departure, and having to pre-purchase the tickets in advance at the harbor itself in Karlsruhe, instead of online. Waiting until the day of departure to purchase tickets is not recommended. Does somebody know of other options for round-trip, one day cruises originating in the Upper Rhine as close to Freiburg as possible? Strasbourg might be an alternative starting point. Starting in Strasbourg and heading down towards Basel might be another option. Going North or South doesn't matter too much to us, as long as we can get back home before dark. We'd like to be able to spend a little time visiting at least one village sometime during the cruise. If someone has a web link for a helpful website, please pass it along! Thank you kindly!
