Hi all! I will be in Belgium for a week and have decided to do a little trip to the Rhine for my last weekend, Sept 18-20. How feasible does my following itinerary look especially considering it will be during the Rhine in Flames festival. Am I missing anything I really need to see while I am there?
9/18: Early morning train from Brussels to Cologne. Sight see in Cologne, train to Braubach to visit castle. Possible night stay in Braubach or train to St. Goar or Oberwesel (if I can find a hotel available). EDITED: Found accommodations in Oberwesel.*
9/19: St Goar castle. Cruise on Rhine (St. Goar to Bacharach). Is it worth trying to go to Rudesheim or Mainz? Back to Oberwesel via train for wine and fireworks.
9/20: Somehow get to FRA for 10:30am departure. Does anyone know which towns have service directly to the airport? I know Mainz does, but do any others?
Any suggestions on how I should work my train tickets? Best done as individual stops or is there a day pass I can get instead?
