Nowhere in the world are there as many medieval castles as on this unique stretch of the Rhine, which in June 2002 was declared a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site. Offing: the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress at the German Corner in Koblenz, Stolzenfels Castle, or the uniquely well-preserved Marksburg Castle in Braubach. Take a look at Cat and Mouse Castles before you come to the undoubted highlight of any Middle Rhine tour – the legendary Loreley Rock! The myth lives on, high above the Rhine, at the top of the gigantic cliff. But the attractions don’t end there. Experience Schönburg Castle at Oberwesel, Pfalz Castle standing in midstream near Kaub, and the romantic wine village of Bacharach with Stahleck Castle. In Rüdesheim you must not miss a visit to the famous Drosselgasse!

A great way to start your visit to the Rhine river valley. So Simple, just present your KD ticket onboard any KD ship and you can enjoy all scheduled day cruises on the Rhine and Moselle rivers for one whole day. It is an extensive and reliable timetable that enables you to disembark as often as you like at the many interesting stops, and spend as much or as little time as you would like.

Or use the pass as a one way ticket to get from one city to another, or maybe you prefer to use it as a return trip to spend a day elsewhere along the river. The choice is yours.

No need to commit yourself to a certain route in advance. The Rhine Pass allows you to enjoy the Rhine Valley with its numerous castles, vineyards and much more. This is much better than rail travel. You can view the Rhine Valley from it's best vantage point - the Rhine river itself!

The Rhine Pass is valid on all scheduled KD day cruises between Cologne and Mainz, as well as the Moselle between Koblenz and Cochen except special theme cruises.

Those who wish to experience the whole of the UNESCO Heritage site should begin their tour in the famous wine town of Rüdesheim. The snake-like bend in the Rhine near Bingen marks the beginning of one of the most exciting stretches. Romantic castle such as the Pfalz at Kaub and Schönburg near Oberwesel proudly keep watch over the Loreley Valley and, steeped in legend, tell of a turbulent history. Enchanting towns and idyllic medieval villages line the banks of the river, bearing witness to the Rhine’s cultural tradition. In St. Goarshausen you come to the fabulous Loreley Rock, which each year attracts thousands of visitors from all over the world. A few miles downstream, near Kamp-Bornhofen, stand the so-called „Hostile Brothers”, while in Braubach the best preserved hilltop fortress in the Rhine Valley, Marksburg Castle, awaits you. Enjoy this unique view and a hint of the Middle Ages as you relax on board a KD ship.
Take a KD cruise past the former German capital Bonn to the legendary Drachenfels Rock at Königswinter.
There you can take the rack railway up to the spot where, according to legend, Siegfried killed the dragon. Enjoy the unique view down over the Rhine Valley. If you prefer to stay on the river bank, you will find a wonderful promenade which simply invites you to take a stroll.

Of course it is worthwhile sailing on further to explore the rest of the mountain range. For instance the picturesque town of Bad Honnef is rightly called the „Nice of the Rhineland”.

Delightful little towns such as Unkel and Linz, with their half-timbered houses and winding lanes, invite you to stay a while, as do the spa towns Bad Breisig and Bad Hönningen.

Did you know that KD is the onlycompany which offers regular services each day on the whole of the stretch of the Rhine which is a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site? Relax and enjoy this fascinating cultural landscape with more than 20 castles and of course numerous romantic wine villages.

The Köln-Düsseldorfer German Rhine Line is market leader in the field of passenger cruising on the Rhine and has been carrying guests to the most beautiful scenery on the Rhine, Main and Moselle rivers for 179 years. At the same time, KD is one of the oldest joint-stock companies in Germany and the world’s most experienced river cruise line. KD is the only boat company offering a scheduled daily service along the whole stretch of the Rhine between Cologne and Mainz.

Anyone looking for a very special kind of romantic and nostalgic experience should not miss cruising the Middle Rhine in proper style on the unique paddle steamer GOETHE on the so-called KD Nostalgia Route. SS GOETHE is the oldest and last remaining paddle steamer on the German Rhine and is also the largest side-wheel steamer in the world. KD’s flagship is again in daily service on the romantic section of the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site between Koblenz and Rüdesheim.

Why not make someone a present of a gift voucher for a KD cruise? Our popular KD Rhine Card is also an excellent present.
