Western Germany - where to stay?

Coming out from Berlin and moving to Paris, we want to stay somewhere for about 5 days. Where is a good base that will allow us to see the Black Forest, Heidelberg and do a day's cruise on the Rhine River?

Karlsruhe would be OK for Heidelberg and Black Forest (there's a train line through the Black Forest, the Schwarzwaldbahn that starts there) but not for the Rhine cruise.

Ask a more specific question about what you want to know, your title is too vague really.

eg Base for Rhine cruise/Heidelberg/Black Forest ?

if that isn't too long for title

Thanks. I think we'll stay at Boppard! Looks like the perfect base for a Rhine cruise and an hour by train to Heidelberg?

Not so good for the Black Forest though!
