Mainz to Koblenz

We will be coming from Frankfurt by train to Mainz - would like to get on board the KB to Koblenz - hopefully with a stop in Ruedesheim (couple of hours ?)

How do we get to the dock from the Station in Mainz - what time is the boat leaving in the AM

I'd advise against catching the boat in Mainz ("K-D", by the way.) It lengthens the ride by 1.5 unnecessary hours through some flat and not very scenic territory. The docks are a LONG walk from Mainz's train station. Just take the train to Rüdesheim and begin your cruise where the real scenery begins.

I can only 2nd Russ. Take the train to Rüdesheim and board there. From Mainz there are anyway only a few boats and this only during high season.
