Travel highlights and activities in the romantic Rhine valley

The Middle Rhine Valley ranks among the most impressive and valuable regions of Germany in terms of its culture and history. As well, the World Heritage Site hosts shape regional cuisine and hospitality with the same care as local vintners cultivate and nurture their vineyards.

The Lorelei rock

For some the Lorelei is a 132-metre slate cliff near St. Goarshausen in the heart of the Upper Middle Rhine Valley. For others it is a legendary, perilous stretch of the Rhine that captured the Romantic imagination. For everyone the Lorelei is amazingly beautiful and inspiring. A visitors' centre sits on top of the Lorelei hill and offers insight into the world-famous myth associated with the Lorelei valley.

Historical towns: From Rüdesheim to Braubach

The historical towns in the Middle Rhine valley have wonderfully quaint restaurants and cafés, inns selling home-produced wine, picturesque timber-framed buildings, impressive castles and town walls.

Experience Rüdesheim, one of the best-known small towns on the Rhine. It offers great walking terrain, the Rheinsteig trail for example, and fabulous, historical surroundings in which to enjoy excellent local wines. Other highlights include Ehrenfels castle ruins and a romantic cable car ride.

Rheinfels Castle above St. Goar is the largest castle ruin on the Rhine and Boppard fascinates with its Roman Fort, its beautiful Rhine promenade and the large Bopparder Hamm vineyard.

Braubach is towerd by Marksburg castle, an impressive fortress situated in majestic splendour on top of a rocky cliff. This is the only hilltop castle on the Middle Rine still in its original condition.
