This is one of the main reasons you came to this area right? To ride the Rhein! Or was it to drink the wine?

The dock to board the ship can't be missed. Just make sure you look for the Koeln-Dusseldorfer sign. (KD) There are some private cruise lines, and you wouldn't want to pay extra!

The boat moves along slowly, chugging along castle by castle by castle. There is running commentary, but if you are on the top deck, you won't hear it. Bring along your own little guidebook. You can pick up one in town before boarding. There is a snack cafe on board, with outrageous prices, as only those desperate for a drink/snack will pay. If you're a snacker, you'd be better off bringing along your own.

It took about 3 hours (10.20 to 1.15) for us to go from St. Goar to Ruedesheim. After wining, dining, and visiting Ruedesheim, we opted for a much quicker ride home. We took the train from Rudesheim to St. Goarhausen and ferried across the Rhein to St. Goar.
