Between Koblenz and Mainz, 20 castles stand lined up on both sides of the river. The best way to admire them is from on board the cruise ship, where you can hop on and off all day at 19 different stops and enjoy the riverside scenery with more than 150 possible departure times. You can spend as much or as little time as you would like at each stop, with the Rhine Pass being valid on all scheduled day cruises between Cologne to Linz and Koblenz to Mainz. There is a restaurant on board but food and drink is not included with the pass.Check the KD timetable at:

The number of castles in the Upper Middle Rhine Valley is unique in the world, and they are the reason why this stretch of river was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. On board the ship you can relax and watch as all these fascinating buildings pass you by. Enjoy the view from the ship of Ehrenbreitstein Fortress and Stolzenfels Castle in Koblenz, the legendary castles Cat and Mouse, the medieval Marksburg Castle, Schönburg Castle or Stahleck Castle in Bacharach. You'll also see the legendary Loreley Rock, which isn't a castle, but nevertheless a fascinating sight.

To start your river excursion, check the timetable and head to any embarkation point. Your ticket allows you to board a scheduled boat at any of the river route stops where you can design your own perfectly paced Rhine River itinerary. Along the cruise, enjoy comfortable seating in a climate-controlled boat, sip on a coffee or tea from the on-board cafe (at your own expense) and catch impressive views of key riverside sites. Hop on and off wherever you’d like to explore – just don’t miss the last return boat to your starting point! Note: Ticket is not valid on special theme event cruises.
