Hello brains trust!! I hope you can help me.
My wife and I will be arriving by train from Heidelberg in June and staying in Bacharach near the train station for 5 nights before heading to Amsterdam by train.
I need some help with developing an itinerary. I don't plan to have a car (do I need one??) and was intending to travel by ferries and trains to various Rhine area destinations. We are not really wine drinkers and are interested in the area for its charm and beauty from what we have seen. This is our lower (and cheaper) version of one of those expensive Rhine River 10 night cruises that we can't afford.
I was wondering whether someone could map out an itinerary based on using ferries and trains please for 4 days.(arriving late to and leaving early from Bacharach from/to our previous/next destinations hence the 4 days).
Yes we are interested in Castles and naturally beaufitul areas as well as anything that is quirky. We will probably have had enough of museums after Paris and with Amsterdam coming up after.
If ferry trips are suggested is it possible to recommend a company? Also, any hand hints such as train to X and then Ferry back to save time would be appreciated.
thank you so much!!
