  • We had the option of navigating the river Rhine on two occasions. The first on a river cruise from Rudesheim to Bacharach (beautiful people) and can appreciate ten castles in the course of an hour of ida and hour and a half back (against the current of the river). It is also very interesting to see the heavy traffic of cargo ships up and down continuously. The boat (which cost us about 40 euros four) there is on-board food and drink, and continually go to offer (not harass) a typical beer or similar. Do not fail to do so. The second occasion that "sail" the Rhine was a ferry to cross with our car from Rüdesheim to the opposite shore (7 euros); There is a ferry every 20 minutes. The journey is short but you can get out of the car and almost touch the river.
