River

Is there a local ferry or cruise ship from Amsterdam to Basel -- rather than paying for an expensive River Cruise -- or is there a road that follows the river to Base? Hep Please

No local ferry or cruise ship except the river cruise ships. there is also no one road that follows the river. this is a good opportunity to learn a bit about using Google maps which is an excellent tool. This link will take you to a map of the route Amsterdam - Basel: https://goo.gl/maps/FPsLi

It is set zoomed in to a small portion of the route in Germany. You can see the river and some secondary and tertiary roads that run thru the countryside in the area of the river and you can see the highway route as well. In the lower right hand corner you will see a "+" and a "-" (plus and minus) which you can use to zoom in and out on the map.

You could plan your own road trip thru the countryside visiting riverside towns along the way and viewing the countryside. But you will not be able to drive the whole way parallel to the river with the river in sight all the time.

Edit addendum: There does seem to be a road that hugs the river for quite a while! Check this out: https://goo.gl/maps/WjWQc

Once you get into Germany there are scheduled ferry services down the Rhine. http://www.k-d.com/en/home/

Best to ask on the relevant forum. I think you can go from Dusseldorf all the way to Maintz. Further than that you will have to check yourself.
