What You Can Expect

River Rhine Cruise from Koblenz to Boppard: Ehrenbreitstein Fortress and Koblenz Cable Car

Enjoy a ride in the cable car!

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.

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.

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.

Visiting from CA with my sister and husband from Holland we totally enjoyed the trip on the Rhine River as well as visiting the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress by The Koblenz Cable Car.
The combi tickets were bought in advance and the KD office booth was easy to find in order to change the
Vouchers.
We highly recommend these combi tickets.
