Legendary - The Romantic Rhine
The Middle Rhine Valley between Bingen/Rüdesheim and Remagen/Unkel offers a unique landscape, quaint towns and more than 60 castles and palaces – hence the name “Romantic Rhine”. The legend of the Lorelei furthermore adds to the fascination of the Rhine romanticism. Two long-distance hiking trails, the Rheinsteig and RheinBurgenWeg, and the Rhine Cycle Route offer great opportunities to discover the region. Another way to travel through the region is by boat: Several shipping companies run tours along the most famous sights. A trip to the Romantic Rhine would not be complete without a tasty glass of regional wine. The wine-growing area is largely known for its Riesling.
