This was a really nice place to vacation. The house is literally on the bank of the Rhine river with beautiful views. The balcony has a four-panel glass door that can be opened completely. We did this every day, even when the weather was a little cool, to enjoy watching the river flow. Yes, there is frequent boat and barge traffic passing and the trains are running across the river every five to ten minutes but we felt the activity only emphasized the commercial importance of this river. Yes, the sound travels well across the river to the house, even at night, but we found it just added to the charm of the place.
Our traveling party was seven adults, three couples and one single. We all found the house comfortable and not confining. The neighborhood is very quiet and the walking paths along the river are extensive. I can heartily recommend this place.
