Kanutour Rhein

Canoe trip along the romantic castles and mansions
in the World Heritage Upper Middle Rhine Valley,
from Rüdesheim to Koblenz.

Places of interest during the canoe trip

Rhine-km 525,4

Starting point of our canoe trip in the World Heritage Upper Middle Rhine Valley: the camping on the right riverbank in Rüdesheim - Rhine-km 525,4. Rüdesheim is the gate to the Middle Rhine Valley. Here the river has still much room to widen. The starting point of the canoe trip is world-famous for its original wine bars and cellars and of course also for the Drosselgasse and the Brömserburg. That's why we selected this city as starting point of our canoe trip.

From Rüdesheim you can take the ferry to Bingen and visit the city and the Heimatmuseum (country museum).
