Overview

Experience the sights and sounds of the Rhine river, from Kobenz to Boppard, on this full-day narrated sightseeing cruise. Enjoy live commentary and take in the scenic panorama of the majestic castles, churches and vineyards along the shores of the Rhine, then explore any of the popular Boppard attractions. Also, enjoy a round-trip cable car ride to see the historic Ehrenbreitstein Fortress on the east bank of the Rhine. Explore the fortress and take in the beautiful panoramic view from above the Rhine.
  • Rhine River cruise from Koblenz to Boppard with entrance to Ehrenbreitstein Fortress
  • Enjoy a round-trip cable car ride to Ehrenbreitstein, enjoying views of the UNESCO-listed Rhine Gorge
  • Cruise along the Rhine Valley from Koblenz to Boppard and spend time at leisure in the town
  • See sights like Karmeliterkirche or Bodobrica independently, if you wish
  • Listen to commentary about the Rhine River valley while cruising
Head to the pier in Koblenz to board the boat, then relax on the 2-hour cruise along the scenic Rhine, the longest river in Germany. Enjoy live commentary and take in the scenic panorama of the majestic castles, churches and vineyards on the shoreline along the way to Boppard.

Upon arrival in Boppard, a former Roman fort, visit any of the local attractions — like Karmeliterkirche, a Gothic church on the riverside; Bodobrica, an old Roman garrison with more than 20 defensive towers; or the Boppard Hamm vineyards, to name a few. Boats depart for the 1.5-hour return cruise to Koblenz at various times throughout the day, so spend as long as desired in Boppard.

Before or after the cruise, take a cable car ride to see the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress on the east bank of the Rhine. Step inside the cable car at Seilbahn Koblenz, then ascend over the Rhine en route to the historic Ehrenbreitstein Fortress. Head inside the magnificent fortress to explore at leisure, learning about its history as a strategic defense building during the Napoleonic Wars and World War I.

The timing for this activity is challenging. We managed to squeeze in the cable car to the fort, the river cruise to and from Boppard and spent time in Boppard with the help of the women who redeemed our vouchers but we got the last boat back and had to drive in the dark - it's an all day outing

it is a great day out. Having the contrast of the cable car and boat ride. You can choose which one you do first. Wonderful views from the cable car of Koblenz. Seeing the were the Mosel and Rhine meet. Loved the fact that the last bost back from Boppard was a paddle steamer. Good food on board.

This was an excellent trip, we started with the cable car ride and the visit to the fortress, there were some celebrations at the fortress, re-enactment and we had to keep checking the time to ensure we did not miss the cruise on the Rhine. We caught the later paddle steamer back from Boppard to end a very enjoyable day at a very reasonable price. Highly recommended

The cruise on the Rhine is so picturesque it's hard to believe its real. Would have stayed on the boat longer if time permitted. The Fortress has a nice restaurant that we really enjoyed.

This tour was a short one but you get to see at least 3 castles. We got there early to see the fortress but the ticket booth was closed until 1 so we had to do the fortress after the cruise. It was about 2 hours there and 1.5 back. Nice cruise not many castles though. Didnt get to go inside the fort

The cable car and the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress were both amazing but the Rhine River Cruise was outstanding. The ships were very elegant and seating was arranged at formal dining tables where food could be purchased although there was no pressure to purchase food. The view from the ship was beautiful and we enjoyed our quick stop in Boppart. This was one of the highlights of our trip.

Could not do the trip from Koblenz to Boppard as the times were not clearly advised on the voucher and we arrived too late to be able to get a return boat. The ticket counter however, were very apologetic and advised we could do one way and get a train back.
Both the cruise and the Fortress...

Both the cruise and the Fortress were great. Highle resommended. My only negative comment is the obligation to present a printed copy of the booking. I arranged my booking the day before my cruise, so I had a really difficult time finding a printed and printing that document. We're in a mobile age, you should be providing your customers other options. The barcode on the e-mail and a valid ID should be more than enough in this day and age.

We did a half day cruise as far as Boppard. It was a wonderful day...the boat was nice, the service was good, with food and drink available on board. I'd recommend this cruise to anyone.
