I'm going to Frankfurt for 7 days in August, though I'm just in the planning stages. I was hoping to spend about half the time in the city, and the other half doing the Rhine Tour from the book in some detail, up to Koblenz.
I'm looking for a bit of advice on logistics, and how to break it down, since I won't have a car and will rely on train.
Would it be better to stay 2 nights in an intermediate city like St. Goar or Bacharach, or would it be do-able commuting back and forth from Frankfurt over several days?
Is there a train ticket I would buy for unlimited full-day travel if I plan to get on and off along this region of the Rhine... for example, if I stayed at St. Goar, I was considering spending one day and stopping at Boppard, Marksburg Castle and Koblenz (or maybe only two of those). If there isn't a day-pass, I would probably need to maximize train trips since they will add up.
Thanks. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
