We did the lunchtime cruise on The Loreley Star and what a fantastic time we had, taking in the majestic scenery whilst eating my Bratwurst, Fries & Beer. What more could you ask for?

We sailed through the Rhine Valley / Rhine Gorge as part of a river cruise heading to Amsterdam. We'd been once before eight or so years ago but if was pouring with rain and we didn't see much that time. This time, the weather was excellent.

Being on a river cruise is great. Cruising down through the Rhine Valley while sitting on the sundeck drinking prosecco just adds to the enjoyment.

Castles to the left and right high above the river. Pretty villages with decorative houses on the shore. Vineyards clinging to the steep slopes. It's all there!

A most enjoyable afternoon with lots of photos taken and lots of memories written down in the diary.

Recommended.

You can explore the Rhine Valley in different ways - by boat, big steamers, tiny ferries (Fahre), trains, bikes or car. We explored by boat and took the most scenic one hour cruise (each way) - from Bacharach to St.Goar. Sat on the boat's top deck and enjoyed the parade of castles, towns, villages, boats and many vineyards. Two boat companies take travelers along this stretch of the Rhine. Boats run daily in both directions from April through October, with only one boat running off-season. Purchase ticket at the dock up to 20 minutes before departure. During the cruise you can order a meal, drinks, so if you have the earliest boat - enjoy your breakfast on the open deck.

During a cruise you will notice large black-and-white kilometer markers along the riverbank. They tell the distance from the Rhine Falls, where the Rhine leaves Switzerland and becomes navigable.

And of course, the best part of any cruise whatever you choose it will be the cascade of castles on the hills. Most Rhine castles date from the 11th, 12th,and 13th centuries. Enjoy!!

Was eager to visit Rhineland-Palatinate due to its special relationship with my home land Rwanda. Upon arriving here, the Rhine Valley was great to explore. Castles, great views and hills were great to experience

Each trip to the Rhine Valley requires a KD cruise. Depending upon choice of locations, the trip is amazing. You can hop on and off at your discretion and enjoy the many amazing small villages. Definitely drop off in Bacharach and Rheudesheim. They are memorable stop. Others are also worth the time. You get to enjoy the scenery, history and many castles of the Rhine. And the price is right.

Travelled on my own from South Wales with Edwards Tour Coaches Company. Joined coach at Swansea, over Ferry from Dover to Calaid. Overnight stay at Belgium and joined river boat at Colgne. Fantastic scenery and relaxation on the boat for 3 days, before returning back to South Wales. Thoroughly enjoyed and would do it again.

The cruise along the Middle Rhine River was the highlight and one of the reasons why we joined our first river cruise with the Viking River Cruises. The cruise along this part of the Rhine River did not disappoint and it was all worth it. Castles, vineyards, churches and quaint villages constantly appear along this magical river cruise.

We never get bored sailing this part of the Rhine. Each time we have done it there seems something different to see. I know it is just the same, but going at different times of the year does make a difference. Although the magical castles are exactly the same, the vineyards change depending on the season, and the river levels get lower or higher depending on the rainfall.

This was the main reason we came on a Rhine cruise and it didn’t disappoint. Medieval castles, beautiful villages, vineyards, churches and forested hillsides constantly appearing as you drift along this beautiful part of the Rhine.

From Rüdesheim to Koblenz I felt as though I was in photo opportunity paradise. Luckily we had a running commentary from a very knowledgeable guide. There is so much to see and so much history that it is difficult to take it all in.
