Day trips: Sail, bike or take the train down the Rhine to the charming medieval towns of Ruedesheim, Koblenz, Bingen or Mainz (where you can see the Marc Chagall stained glass windows in St. Stephan’s Church, or visit the Gutenberg Museum). Another day, go up the Rhine to wander the medieval town of Braubach, or roam the storybook villages of the Mosel with their vineyards, cobbled lanes and world-famous wines. For slightly longer day trips, visit the Roman city of Trier, the university town of Heidelberg or the unforgettable cathedral at Cologne.

Sightseeing: Visit any one of 30 castles within a 50-mile stretch of your home. In July, attend the Rhine in Flames festivals where spectacular fireworks make the river look like it’s ablaze. In the fall, join in the fun of the countless local wine festivals of this unique wine-producing region.

For off-the-beaten-track activities that can’t be beat: Rent bikes and take a journey from one town to the next on flat, well-maintained bike trails that connect villages. Relax on a quiet bench watching the movement of the mighty Rhine. Have your breakfast or lunch on the KD boat (included in your train pass) while admiring the centuries-old vineyards that line the hillsides of this beautiful, bustling river or take the chair lift over the endless vineyards for a tremendous view of the Rhine Valley.

Here's what our customers say about how much there is to do in Rhine:

"We loved our trip and would recommend the area to anyone. Since I am a repeat Rhein Untourist, I guess that speaks for itself! Being able to travel to Berlin, Baden-Baden and Munich as well made this our best vacation ever." Dorinda Urbauer and Louis Macaluso

"Staff person Rita was great! Very informative and great personality. We went to several places she highly recommended and we weren't disappointed. Our apartment was the perfect location, close to the KD boat, ferry, train station and nice town with ample services, shops and restaurants." Holly and Mark Walla

"The town of Oberwesel, the people we encountered, and the apt. were a perfect end to our day trips." Richard Coffin

"St Goar is an excellent, central location for exploring the Rhine Valley." Sophia Colan

"I liked seeing a new country from the perspective of someone living there, walking around the same streets, eating at the same places as the local folks there do." Bobbie and Dan Sessler

"We had several opportunities to talk at length with local people--our best Untour out of eight in this regard. Germans were uniformly friendly and helpful. The country is exceptionally clean, neat and beautiful. The Oberwesel Mideaval Festival was a special 'plus'." Edwin and Helen Lowrey

"The Rhineland was beautiful, and it was nice to have it as a base to take quick overnights to Heidelberg and Trier, which I did." Linda Goodrich

“I loved watching the barge traffic – even at night. I would have loved to have my mountain bike with me, to take advantage of all the perfect riding paths along the river. There were many things left undone – castles not explored, cities and museums not seen, roads not traveled…to sit back and gaze at the castles and countryside while floating along [on the KD boat line] was pure pleasure….” Dane Axen, Rhine Untour
