What You Can Expect

Rhine Valley Trip from Frankfurt including Rhine River Cruise

Loreley Rock on the River Rhine

Depart from central Frankfurt for one of the most beautiful areas of Germany: a section of the upper-middle Rhine Valley that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, thanks to its role in transportation since prehistoric times, as well as its dramatic landscape filled with centuries-old fortresses and castles.

The 766-mile (1,232-kilometer) Rhine River stretches from Switzerland to the North Sea. To cruise it in its entirety would take several days, so your half- or full-day trip centers on one of the most beautiful stretches.

On the half-day excursion, you’ll embark on a Rhine River cruise from Kaub to Rudesheim, Germany, and then enjoy a wine tasting and dinner. If you’re time-crunched, this is an excellent way to get an introduction to this legendary and romantic area of Germany.

However, if you have a little more time to spend, consider the full-day Rhine Valley excursion. A lovely riverside restaurant is your location for a leisurely lunch, after which you’ll board a Rhine River cruise that includes passing by Loreley Rock, an iconic landmark at the narrowest part of the entire river. When you reach the harbor at St Goarshausen, you will disembark for a wine tasting before enjoying some free time to stroll around Rudesheim, filled with wine bars and shops.

Very happy with the tour. Wish the boat ride was longer. Wine tasting is very quick. For the price its hard to beat.

Very nice tour! Restaurant was awesome and the ride to the restaurant on a cable car was spectacular with awesome views! River Cruise was excellent. It was very hot. Boat did not have much ice and lower deck was not a/c. Be prepared to buy lots of water with no gas @ 2.50 Euros each. By the end of the trip, we purchased 6 bottles.
