Rudesheim promanade on the river Rhine. - Trier

Rudesheim promanade on the river Rhine.

Trip to Rudesheim

From Trier by train to Rudesheim am Rhein takes 3 hours , with one change at Koblenz,if this sounds a long time bear in mind that there is lovely scenery along the Mossel and Rhine rivers, using the Rheinland ticket at 23 euro one person or a few euro more for up to 5 people on one ticket it is a bargain. You can break your journey and get on and off has you like on the regional trains. Rudesheim is on the right bank of the river rhine opposite from Binghem,is famous for reislings wine,vineyards everywhere. There is a cable car up to Niederwald Denkmal monument has you glide over the wine slopes, return fare was about 6 euro 50. [2011] Try to go up early has it gets busy at peak times

Tourist toy train - Trier

Trip to Cochem

From Trier the train ride is about one hour to Cochem Mosel,leave the station by the right,or go to river bank and turn right. Cochem is a pretty place and gets crowded with tourists. There is a tourist toy train which takes you around Cochem and across the bridge to the over side of the river Mosel.,interesting ride and views. There is a chairlift well worth it for the view. The fare on the chairlift was 4 euro 80. In town there are loads of shops , bars, and cafes.
