Our most recommended things to do in Rüdesheim am Rhein

From Frankfurt: Rhine Valley Day Trip

1. From Frankfurt: Rhine Valley Day Trip

Discover the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Rhine Valley, with its vineyards and picturesque towns and villages. See the mighty medieval castles – the area has the highest density of such buildings in the world. Marvel at the stunningly beautiful "Lorelei-Felsen," or Siren's Rocks, and enjoy fantastic views over the valley from the Niederwald monument. In the summer you can ride on the Assmannshausen cable car down into the valley (optional), have lunch in a marvelous restaurant on the banks of the Rhine (included), and then take a wonderful Panorama boat trip to St. Goarshausen, past the famous Loreley. Try fine wines on location in a small tavern and or just lose yourself in the picturesque little town of Rüdesheim. Please note that the tour will only stop at Rüdesheim if time allows. In winter time it may be possible that steamers do not operate in case of bad weather or water conditions. In this case, you will visit a castle instead. You'll travel back to Frankfurt by bus when the tour is finished and will be dropped off at the meeting point.

Read the description carefully. I did this trip in off season when the tour boats in the Middle Rhine do not run so using a tour company insured that I had a spot on one of the few boats that were running. The bus transport meant that I could view everything, which from a train is not possible due to tunnels and speed. Yes, you can do it more cheaply, yes there is some repetition up and down the road, but the scenery made it worth it. Our guide Michael was super friendly and told lots of bad jokes about his wife (who wasn’t there to defend herself) but you know the type, just roll with it and you’ll have some fun. I don’t drink alcohol so the wine tasting was lost on me but others seemed to enjoy it.

A great day, as described. Lunch was good, wine tasting brief & no pressure to purchase. The boat cruise was lovely and our guide was informative and entertaining.

I took the trip with my godson (21 years old) from Ireland. We had a lot of fun on this ride. I also really enjoyed the trip as a tourist in my own country.

It was a nice and scenic boat cruise with lunch and wine tasting included. The guide was friendly and informative. I enjoyed the day trip.

Wonderful guide. Informative. Meal was good. Small group. Loved it.
