Fitting in Marksburg and Rheinfels Castles in One Crusie Day

Jump to last reply

I have one day for a Rhine cruise. Trouble is it's a Mon. ,which makes it difficult on the KD (not as many time options on the KD stops). So I have worked out a plan, but need a seasoned Germany traveler to give me advice:

1. Catch the 9:30 KD from Bingen and go all the way to Braubach arriving 12:20. Tour Marksburg, finishing around 2-2:30.
2. Train from Braubach to St. Goarshausen for a ferry crossing. The schedule would be tight since there is a train @ 3:06 arriving @3:36. Then ferry over to St. Goar. Could I make Rheinfels Castle before closing if I arrive on the 3:36?
3. Alternative would be train to Filsen from Braubach and ferry to Boppard, then train to St. Goar.
4. Last part would be train back to Bingen.

Any advice on details would be greatly appreciated.
