River cruise for 1 day in Bonn in May

If I really want to experience the cruise segment between St Goar and Bingen (known to be the best, is it wise to do this (I have a car and will be driving to Marburg after the cruise):

Bonn to St Goar (1H20) by own car

St Goar to Bingen (how long is the cruise?)

Bingen to St Goar (what public transportation?) to pick up car

St Goar to Marburg by own car (2H)

Thank you !

This is certainly doable. I would take the hourly train from St. Goar to Bingen Stadt and cruise downriver back to St. Goar. Alternatively drive to St. Goarshausen, take the train to Rüdesheim and the boat from there. This depends on what else you would like to see, like the castles at St. Goar or Braubach.

Train schedules at www.bahn.de.

The 2 main cruise operators on that stretch are Köln-Düsseldorfer (KD) and Bingen-Rüdesheimer. Schedules are probably not out yet.

The drive to Marburg will take longer than 2 hours, no matter if you go on the motorway or through the Taunus mountains to Limburg or take the motorway via Frankfurt.
