Bingen am Rhein Transportation: 12 reviews and 18 photos
The trip up the river Rhein by boat is an unmissible experience, and one that draws in tourists from miles around. It seems particularly popular with German, British and Japanese tourists, and the landscape around the River Gorge between Bingen and Koblenz is very typical of the Germany that British people think of when theyhear the word. It is an amazing trip, and one that will have your shutter clicking endlessly as you skip from one side of the boat to the other. There are so many sights to see on such a short stretch that you really get your money's worth. The villages are all tightly packed together, there are castles on every bend of the river, and plenty more besides. In addition the rolling vales and precarious cliffs are a wonder in themselves.

Make sure to remember that the river runs downstream from Mainz to Koblenz, therefore the boats travel much faster in this direction than the other. That means that if you have a short amount of time and want to see as much as possible then take the route downstream. If you want to dawdle and get your money's worth (both trips cost the same) then you'll want to get the upstream boat to soak up the beautiful countryside.
