What You Can Expect

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

Enjoy a ride in the cable car across the River Rhine!

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.

Cumplió con mis expectativas!!! Mi familia y yo pasamos un día fantástico en Koblenz, el ascenso a la Fortaleza en cablecar fue muy divertido, vistas increíbles de la ciudad, el Rhin y el Mosela. El viaje en el crucero valió la pena, lo recomiendo ampliamente!!!!!

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.

It was amazing! Everything all connected and the ticket booth lady was AWESOME! She recommended a timeline and a great breakfast place that all worked out great! The trip was so relaxing and the staff on the boat very attentive. Cleanliness and promptness all made the trip so enjoyable! We hope to do this again!

We didn't have perfect weather on our trip, however, it was still well worth taking. Beautiful and relaxing. Germany is a beautiful country.

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.

It was a Nice Trip


4 star rating: Recommended May 2014

Although it was a cloudy day, we still had a terrific time. The ship was much nicer than we expected!! Unfortunately all the beverages are now computerized, so you can't even get water for free. We thought our excursion was going to pass 30 Castles, but it only passed about 5. I now presume you would need to travel much further down the Rhine to see all thirty as advertised. Boppard is a charming town, but again, if you want to get back in time to use the cable car and see the fortress, you must start out on the 9am cruise, and return immediately (55 minutes later) on the next return trip. During the summer there is a return trip that would give you another 2 hours in Boppard. In May it is not offered.
