  A river boat docks at Bacharach

A slow (but scenic and fun) way to arrive in Bacharach is to take the boat. Köln-Düsseldorfer runs regular boats 4-5 times daily in each direction between Koblenz (or Boppard) and Mainz, stopping at many Rhine villages along the way. Travel time from Koblenz is 4 1/2 hours, while travel from Mainz is 3 1/2 hours. To save time but still get the river boat experience, many guidebooks recommend taking the boat from nearby St. Goar, past the famous Loreley, and on to Bacharach in a more manageable 1 hour 10 minutes. Another company, Bingen-Rüdesheimer, also offers periodic boat service between St. Goar and Rüdesheim with stops in Bacharach.

Fares vary with route and company -- check the various websites for details. If you arrived in the area by train, don't throw your ticket away. Present the train ticket at the boat ticket booth and receive a 15% discount on your boat ride. K-D also offers free passage on their boats to those with a railpass valid in Germany (note that you must use a day on a flexipass).
