To enjoy the most scenic stretch of the Rhine you'd have to go about 90 minutes up the river to Bingen and get on the boat down to maybe Boppard - then you will have seen that famous romantic valley with its 40 castles.

If you fancy just a stopover in one picturesque little town further north, Linz would be perfect. Koblenz cetrainly does have its share of interesting sights but hardly anyone would call it "picturesque"...

Agree w/ Oli-6. To stay within one hour of Cologne: take a direct RE or RB train south to Linz (one hour away.) Return north by KD boat from Linz at 14:50 or 16:50 to Bonn (takes 1.5 hours) and from there catch a train back to Cologne. Not as scenic as the Middle Rhine trip from Bingen but still nice and it meets your parameters.

When you arrive at Linz, is the boat pier far away from the train station. Mother can walk a little, also is it easy to find the boat etc. Finally what is the name of the ticket you ask for at the train station that lets 2 people go for a reduced price. ? Thanks
