A German must-do is a Rhine River cruise!
We chose to go northbound from Rudesheim to Koblenz, or at least we thought we were going to Koblenz.
At the ticket booth we discovered that since it was late in the season, the boat only goes to Sankt Goarhousen, quite a bit short of our intended destination.
Never fear – Germany public transport is amazing and we could tell through the Deutsche Bahn app that we could catch a train from Sankt Goarhousen up to Koblenz, and very cheaply.
This section of the Rhine is dotted with castles everywhere – it seems that every single turn on the river brings a new castle into view, along with vineyards, churches, and picturesque little villages.
