Get to Rüdesheim
The nearest international airport for you to get to Rüdesheim is Frankfurt Airport (FRA). From the airport you will need to take a train for about 1.5 hours. Koblenz is an hour north by train at the down river end of the castles along the Romantic Rhine. The Romantic Rhine is also sometimes called the Upper Middle Rhine Valley. You can reach Rüdesheim on a day trip from Koblenz. Ride the train from Koblenz to Rüdesheim and then take a local river cruise like KD Rhine back to Koblenz. The flow of the Rhine River makes it a much better to cruise downstream toward Koblenz, because the trip along the river is much faster.
Gondola to Niederwald Monument
Most Rhine River Cruises spend the night at Rüdesheim if they are heading downstream through the Romantic Rhine gorge. If the river cruise is heading upstream through the Romantic Rhine, you will spend the night in Koblenz. Check out our Romantic Rhine blog.
Rüdesheim weather is the best in summer. Average temperatures peak in July and August at 80 F (26 C), while lows are about 55 F (13 C). By December and January average highs are 40 F (5 C) and average lows are just below freezing. Rainfall is light throughout the year, but tends to spike in July. Rüdesheim weather is perfect in August, but spring and fall may be more enjoyable because there are less tourists at that time of year.
