Rhine cycle path | based in one hotel

The Hotel Maritim Königswinter is located directly beside the river rhine!

Hotel Maritim Königswinter

Why it is so beautiful at the river Rhine? The scenic river region between Cologne and Coblenz gives you many answers to this question. On daily tours with bicycle and ship - always starting in Königswinter - you will experience world-famous buildings like the Cologne Cathedral and the Beethoven House in Bonn as well as natural spectacles like the cold water geyser in Andernach. You cycle through fantastic landscapes, where a lot of fruits grow as well as vines for very good wines. You drive to water castles and romantic towns like Linz, Remagen and Coblenz. Hedonists will love this journey as much as nature lovers and romantics.

Klasse Hotel - Aber erhebliche Einschränkungen beim Transport mit der DB
Grundsätzlich sollte diese Fahrt 5 Sterne bekommen, denn sowohl das MARITIM Hotel (mit der Klimaanlage auf den Zimmern) als auch der Streckenverlauf haben es verdient. Aber: 1. Bei der Rückfahrt von Koblenz ist von Linz nach Königswinter eine Schiffsetappe vorgesehen. Das Schiff fährt nur einmal um 16:50 Uhr ab Linz. Meines Erachtens entsteht hier aber nur unnötiger Zeitdruck, das Schiff zu erwischen. Das kann herausgenommen werden. 2. Die Bahnhöfe in Mehlem & Königswinter haben leider keine Rampe für Fahrräder. Je nach Fahrtrichtung müssen die Räder (auch E-Bikes!) 2 Treppen hoch- bzw heruntergetragen werden. 3. Zwischenfälle mit der DB/VRS innerhalb unserer 4 Tage: a) Hinfahrt nach Ahrbrück - der Zug endet ohne Ankündigung in Remagen. Damit kann die Tour nicht wie geplant absolviert werden. Die Zugkarte ist aber bereits bezahlt. b) der RE8 (Start in Köln zur Rückfahrt) endet wegen Personenschaden in St. Augustin-Menden. Die Reststrecke nach Königswinter mußte zusätzlich geradelt werden, da die DB keine Fahrräder transportierte. c) der RE8 (Start in Königswinter in Richtung Koblenz) fällt mehrmals am Tag aus. 4. Die Tour, die absolut problemlos geklappt hat, war die große Wasserburgen-Route, weil sie ohne VRS oder Bundesbahn durchgeführt werden konnte. Als Fazit kann gesagt werden, daß die DB der große Pferdefuß 3 von 4 Tagesetappen war. Damit wurden die Tagesabläufe kräftig durcheinander geschüttelt. Nicht jeder hat so viel Fahrradkarten mit, um dann blitzschnell umdisponieren zu können. Hier sollte Rückenwind zukünftig insofern darauf reagieren, als Alternativ-Strecken oder Alternativ-Beförderungsmittel angeboten werden. Dennoch - per Saldo - ein Super-Hotel in toller Lage + eine wunderschöne Radel-Gegend an Rhein und Ahr.
