New views from the Rhine - for groups and individuals: Sometimes you have to take a step back to see nature and culture in all their beauty. This is particularly true for the ancient agricultural landscape of the Rheingau with its vineyards, castles, palaces and picturesque wine villages. And it is only from the water that you can take in the harmony of the whole breathtaking view! Our tip: explore Rüdesheim and then join Primus Linie on board ship in the afternoon. Every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday – we start from Rüdesheim at 3:30pm enjoying magnificent views together as we travel up the Rhine to Mainz or Wiesbaden. From there, you can travel back to Rüdesheim either using the bus provided or alternatively under your own steam using the RMV Kombiticket for local public transport services.
