If you would like to take a boat along the Rhine, you will have plenty of opportunities to do so. Two companies, Köln-Düsseldorfer (KD) and Bingen-Rüdesheimer, offer scheduled service from Bacharach up and down the Rhine. KD is more focused on providing transportation, while Bingen-Rüdesheimer also offers many package tours and day-cruises.

Ingrid (trekki) joined us for a day-trip to Boppard. We took the boat there, enjoyed the views, had lunch in Boppard, and took the train back to Bacharach. Similar day-trips are equally possible to other Rhine villages such as St. Goar.

One tip to save you a bit of money if you came to Bacharach by train. Show your train ticket at the ticket booth and receive a 15% discount on your boat tickets.

Directions: Both companies have docks by the river, across the highway. The K-D dock is on the north end of the river park by the parking lot.
