This is a quick train ride through forested hills. There is a fare machine inside the train, and it is 3 Euros. We fretted about this as tickets are to be purchased across the street from the train station, but it didn't open until 9...More

Visited Boppard today. Roman remains and medieval town walls mix with a number of interesting buildings. Look out for the two red English telephone boxes near the opticians used as glasses display cases. Took boat trip ftom here around to Lorelei which has english commentary...More

Nothing much to see at any of the stops if you get off. There are walking trails if that's your thing. I think I expected to be up in the mountains but in fact you are just up a hill to villages. We thought we...More

I've rode the Hunsrïckbahn from Boppard to Emmelshausen. The views weren't as spectacular as expected. Since there is not much to see or to do in Emmelshausen, I took the very same train right back to Boppard. I consider this train ride back and forth...More

The train ride itself is nothing too exciting (unless you are a train geek). The vehicle is clean and comfortable. We took the train from Boppard to Buchholz and walked down along the Hunsrückbahn-Wanderweg which was a lovely way to spend the morning with our...More

You take the train (Hunsruckbahn - walkers’ train) up the hill and then walk back and the views are spectacular. Some TA reviews are complaining about the lack of views, that is because the train is mostly surrounded by trees - you only see the...More

You may see nice-looking pictures of viaducts and other features, but they are mostly NOT taken from the train. The ascent from Boppard to the first station is pretty steep and the scenery is pleasant, but once you get onto the plateau that the Rhine...More
