THREE TRIPS FROM TRIER GERMANY.

Charming Saarburg, Cochem and Rudesheim.

I stayed in Trier Germany for four nights ,using it as a base for trips out. The train is great for getting around,.
The DB regional train pass is good value, valid after 9am for all day. It can be used as often as you like in the day.I believe there is a bargain for family ticket. These were three trips out. I did blog on Trier in an earlier blog.RUDESHEIM  GERMANY.

These places look so beautiful. We also love to get rail passes and travel around Germany.

The chairlift in Rudesheim looks like fun. Pretty villages.

Ah, you even went to Saarburg! Hardly any tourist finds this place.

Those chairlifts look scary to me.
