Know More about this tour

Your River Rhine cruise includes a round-trip Koblenz cable car ticket with entrance fee to Ehrenbreitstein Fortress. When you use your ticket is up to you; ride in the cable car and visit the attraction either before or after your cruise.

Simply step inside the cable car -- the longest in Europe outside of the Alps -- and ascend to a height of 2,789 feet (850 meters), admiring views over the UNESCO-listed Rhine Gorge below. Head inside the magnificent fortress to explore at leisure, learning about its past as a strategic defense building during the Napoleonic wars and World War I.

At a time that suits your schedule, hop aboard your sightseeing boat at Koblenz riverside, and then take a seat outside on deck or indoors in the spacious saloon. Then, cruise south along the Rhine River toward the town of Boppard, along a stretch of the water known as the Rhine Valley or Middle Rhine. Listen to audio commentary about the UNESCO-listed area, hearing fun facts about the famous river’s geology, history and sights. Your journey takes roughly two hours, and the route passes nearly 30 castles, fortresses and ruins as well as vineyards and pretty half-timbered villages.

Pass Kurtrierische Burg, one of the region’s more imposing castles, and then dock at Boppard’s main pier. Perhaps visit Karmeliterkirche, a Gothic church on the riverside, or explore Bodobrica – an old Roman garrison with more than 20 defensive towers. The town lies in the heart of the Rhine Valley wine region, so the nearby wineries are well worth a visit, too. All entrance fees, activities and meals in town are at your own expense. Boats returning to Koblenz leave at different times throughout the day, so you can spend as long as you like in Boppard. The cruise back lasts roughly 1.5 hours.

  • 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.

  • The tour was very good value for money, a lovely experience and had a fabulous time, really worth it.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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 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.
