    Take a big loop south and enter via Poland - that'll catch them unaware.

    The site looks busy (Loreleyblick), is it important to book ahead in September say? and have you used public transport from the site to Koblenz? I know there are rail lines on the river?.

    What makes it a favouite site of yours?

    Thanks Brian

    If Koblenz is on your list this site http://www.camping-rhein-mosel.de/camping-rhein-mosel.html is the closest to the city. There is a water taxi that takes you across the river during the day.
    The guy who operates the boat is very pedantic when it comes to times. We were on the last boat in the evening and he wouldn't let 2 back packers on even though it was nearly empty and still tied up, because they arrived about 30 seconds after the closing time.:Doh:

    You probably will have to book as it's very popular because of it's river side location, and proximity to the city.

    Thanks Pete

    We quite like the idea of staying at Loreleyblick but visiting Koblenz for a day.
    We enjoy local public transport, gets you in touch with local people usually, therefore the questions.

    We were there last Sep, loads of space. To get anywhere you jump on a boat, or I guess a train.

    Favourite because of the Rhine, the town a short walk away, Bopard a cycle or boat away. Bopard is probably the ultimate tourist trap of the Rhine.

    There is one problem, trains both sides so can be annoying at night.

    I just love walking, cycling and watching the incredible traffic on it.

    Follow the river to Switzerland and on the boarder is Europe's biggest waterfall. Another must see. With it's own good aire on the Swiss side.
