Rhine River Pleasure Day-Trip Boat Cruises from Rüdesheim
Rüdesheim is one of the best departure ports for day-trip excursion riverboat cruises to see the Rhine Valley, castles and Loreley Rock.
Rüdesheim is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Germany. It is one of the best ports to depart from on Rhine River pleasure boat cruises: the immediate vicinity is astonishingly beautiful with many castles, vineyards and pretty small towns that make the Rhine such a popular day-trip cruise destination.
Rüdesheim is at the southernmost point of the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage listed Middle Rhine (Mittelrhein) making it an excellent choice when exploring the romantic Rhine Valley on a day-trip excursion boat cruise.
The best cruise from Rüdesheim is downriver to explore the Loreley Valley. From here to around Koblenz, the Rhine Valley is narrow with steep slopes - often planted with vineyards - and statistically a castle every two kilometers.
Rhine River day-trip and excursion cruises from Rüdesheim is available for most of the year. The main cruising season is from April to October. Early and late season, Rhine cruises are more common on weekends, although departures are available daily from Rüdesheim.
We'll move in our personal vehicle and reach at one of the departing points. At this point we will have place booked for us in a cruise in advance. I will arrange that for us personally. The duration of going and coming back in cruise will be somewhere around 1hr30mins. The trip also includes local wine tasting.
After the end of the cruise trip we can stop at a local German restaurant and you can enjoy lunch if you want or we can also make stop to buy souvenirs.
After this day trip full of adventure I will drop you back to the original location.
