Wine And Rhine
Visit Vineyards, Medieval Villages & Romantic Castles
The Upper Middle Rhine Valley embraces a 40-mile long gorge with walls rising up to 650 feet above the Rhine. Terraced vineyards blanket the slopes, and medieval walls embrace quaint towns. It’s a landscape of legendary castles, including Felsenfestung Ehrenbreitstein, overlooking the Rhine and Mosel Rivers from its hilltop aerie. Look out for Lorelei rock, named for a mythical nymph who lured sailors to this stony pinnacle near St. Goarhausen.
