I'm going to Frankfurt for 5 nights in August. One day I would love to go on a boat trip up the Rhine to the Niederwald and Loreley.
It's hard to find much info. online about how to do this - and was just wondering if somebody has done it before. I have managed to find a boat that does the trip at this website-
Is that the only company that does the trip? Is it the cheapest method?
Can you advise what the best trip would be to do? We would love to go on the cable car ski lift thing - is there two chair lifts? It looks so beautiful and so much fun! Do you advise just seeing the Niederwald Monument? How do you get up and down to the Loreley - I will be with somebody who has loose cartilage in their knee and wouldn't be able to walk too far in the heat. - I don't want to tire them out :) Is St Goarhausen a shame to miss and the Loreley or just go to Rudesheim and the Niederwald? Should we buy the tickets in advance or wait until the day we leave? It would likely be a Monday we travel there.
How do you get back from the trip - is it by train? If anybody has any info.
Thanks in advance :)
