What could be more apt than discovering the exceptional landscape of the town at the confluence of Rhine and Lahn from the water?
The middle Rhine valley has been a point of attraction since the 19th century and features a great abundance of cultural evidence. With its vine-covered slopes, the castles arrayed on the rocks, and the medieval villages along the riverside promenades, it is deemed the epitome of Rhine romanticism.
The Lahn valley impresses with its unique untouched nature. Up to the end of the 19th century, over 300 buildings like castles, fortresses and fortified churches were erected along the river. One of the most famous of these buildings is the "Wirtshaus an der Lahn" (tavern on the Lahn) in Lahnstein that became widely known, mostly through the famously infamous song about the "Wirtin an der Lahn" (the hostess on the Lahn) and the visit of Goethe.
Apart from the scheduled routes between Easter and October, the KD also offers eventful boat trips, merry party tours, children's parties and exciting day trips as well as a winter schedule, completed by the varied onboard gastronomy.
