Rhine/Mosel - 5 days September

Jump to last reply

Four friends, driving a car from Heidelberg, arriving at Bingen day one, in the morning, leaving Koblenz by train day 5.
This is our plan, what do you think?

Day 1: arrive Bingen from Heidelberg (1.5 hrs) for 9:30 or 10:30 am KD cruise to Boppard (?or St.Goar); lunch and afternoon in Boppard (or St.Goar?); train back to Bingen late afternoon. Drive car to Bacharach hotel for dinner and evening.

Day 2: drive to Trier (1.5 hr) in am, spend day here, maybe a walking tour, see the Roman ruins.
Late afternoon, drive to Cochem, check into hotel, dinner & walk about town.

Day 3: take cable car to castle in am, see falconry show and drive to wineries in afternoon
OR rent bicycles and tour wineries on bicycles for the day,
stay 2nd night in Cochem

Day 4: drive to Mosselkern early am, hike trail up to Burg Eltz Castle, tour, return down trail for lunch at hotel in Mosselkern. Drive north(1 hr) to Marksburg Castle in Braubach; tour castle. Drive to Kamp-Bornhofen (15 min.) for our last night at castle hotel Burg Liebenstein.

Day 5: after breakfast, leisurely drive to Koblenz, to leave rental car and board 2pm train for Munich.

Does this look like an okay plan? Do our driving times look realistic? Would you rearrange and/or change anything?

What do you think about the one full day in Cochem - we would like to do a bike winery tour - is it possible to do the Castle in the morning, then do a bicycle winery tour afternoon? or would it be better to do driving tour in afternoon if we wish to do castle in the morning... or forget about the castle and just do bike tour for the day. Where do we get info on biking tours in this area? Best to do on own, or hook up with a group (if possible)? Other recommendations?

Thx!
