Experience the Romantic Rhine without limits
His majesty Father Rhine flows through a truly majestic valley between Bingen, Rüdesheim and Remagen. The Romanticists of the 19th century never tired of painting its beauty or describing it in verse. 40 castles sit enthroned on both sides of the river on the forested slopes rising above steep vineyards. No other river landscape could compete with the romantic Rhine in a beauty contest. There are numerous myths and legends about the romantic Rhine.
