Day Trip in Mainz - no Rhine River Cruises?

Hi,

Before needing to be in Frankfurt for work this Tuesday, I have a free Monday to play with....

Was thinking that a train ride to Mainz might be nice. I had thought river cruises might run but the KD schedule doesnt have much from Mainz - particularly on Mondays as Low Season kicks in. Just hoped to ride an hour up the river then back down etc.

Lunch, river cruise, dinner and train back to Frankfurt sounds pretty nice. :-)

Are there other sites/boats to check?

Thanks in advance.

Even in peak season KD does not offer much from Mainz (2 vs 1 departure per day). The truth is that the section from Mainz - Rudesheim is not so interesting, it is the middle Rhein which is very good.

If you want to do this then take the train to Bingen or Rudesheim and take the boat from there up to St Goarshausen or Boppard (then train back), or the whole way to Koblenz.

This Mainz website gives ideas for some other options:
