Crystal Mahler V7D07 Nov 1 - Nov 17 2017

Recommended Posts

We have booked a number of excursions, mainly the Xmas markets

 

Did you do the cable car at Koblenz

 

 

 

Unfortunately the cable car was not running today so we were bussed up to the fort. I am not sure whether the cable car is closed for the season or just today. We arrived late today so the tour was shorter than originally planned. Thanks to the guide, I loved the fort and the mini city tour.

This morning, the GPS commentary was not working so we saw a lot of wonderful scenery/castles while cruising sans commentary.

Crazycoop99: The cable car excursion at Koblenz was definitely worth doing. The ride itself was nice, about 10 minutes each way, with great views. On the inaugural cruise of the Mahler, we had an outstanding guide who really made the fortress at the top come alive.

 

swn4: Thank you so very much for your interesting commentary!

I did not do a 2nd Michelin dinner but those that did Edvard/Schiller’s and especially those that did Le Ciel/Schiller’s said Schiller’s was significantly better. If you did not drink wine, Schiller’s had juice pairings.

I checked and the cablecar runs only on the weekends in the winter.

I also have enjoyed this thread very much. A few of the photos weren't visible to me, but the ones that are here are great! The one with Mozart and Mahler is especially wonderful.

 

Thank you, OP, and one past and one future guest who chimed in.
