I noticed that with the purchase of a German rail pass card, it stated a bonus of the pass is:
"Free transport on river boats on the Rhine and Moselle
The German Rail Pass is valid for free travel on the river boats operated by the Köln-Düsseldorfer Rheinschiffahrt AG:
Between Cologne and Mainz on the Rhine
OR Between Koblenz and Cochem on the Moselle"
We are in the planning stages of our trip for March, so all opinions welcome on which of these would be a better river trip as far as end destinations and sights along the way. We would ultimately be heading in the Black Forest direction, so we could go either route-- a little diversion is OK. We would be using this river day trip as a slower version of travel --taking the boat vs train-- so we would have a very small amount of luggage --a small 4 wheeled case for me, a backpack for him. Just thought it might be a nice change of pace, gliding along on the river vs. zipping along the tracks to reach a destination.
Ideas? Thoughts? Previous experience on either route?
Thanks in advance!
