Boat tours on the Rhine River in Germany

A boat trip on the Rhine River is probably the most relaxed way to explore the region. While you are cruising past small medieval towns and wonderful sceneries you always have the chance to hop off the boat to visit historic places, climb up the steep vineyards to one of the many castles or listen to the beautiful Loreley who has bewitched reams of sailors at the steepest and most narrow part of the valley. Just below the Castle Liebenstein in the village Kamp-Bornhofen you can find several landing stages of different cruise boat companies. From Kamp-Bornhofen you can make day tours to Ruedesheim, the famous Loreley Rock, St. Goar or any other place along the Middle Rhine River. You can find further information about destinations and departures on the websites of the cruise boat companies:

Loreley-Line Köln-Düsseldorfer

We offer a free shuttle service between the castle and the landing stages for our hotel guests.
