Pictures to inspire you to visit the Rhine River Valley in Germany

Rhine River Valley pictures

Our Rhine River Valley cruise from Mainz to Sankt Goar in Germany was one of the highlights of our whole 13-month adventure. You can take a fancier river cruise or the KD Ferry like we did. Either way, it’s a relaxing way to spend an afternoon (or longer!) and you’ll see some remarkable scenery along the way. Including castles. Lots of castles! The most chock-full-of-castles part of the trip is from Bingen to Sankt Goar. We hurriedly scurried from one side of the boat to the other snapping hundreds of pictures. Here are our favorites…

      If you take the KD Ferry it depends on where you get on and off (there are a lot of options). The one we did was just under 50 EUR per person for one way from Mainz to St. Goar. The round trip is only a little bit more, but in my opinion that’s a lot of time to spend on a boat especially since you see the same thing twice. So we took the train back to Mainz. It’s not cheap, but was something I would still recommend, especially on a lovely sunny day like the one we had.

    This looks absolutely magical! I haven’t been to Germany since I was in high school but I absolutely loved the little I got to see – it’s probably time to go back!
