Cruising Middle Rhine Valley
The enchanting Middle Rhine Valley – also affectionately known as the ‘Romantic Rhine Valley – is Germany at its finest. World renowned for its breathtaking, postcard-perfect scenery, the Middle Rhine features imposing cliffs and picturesque rolling hills, steep vineyards, historic landmarks including a collection of magnificent medieval castles and a string of picturesque riverside cities, towns and villages such as Bacharach, Boppard, St. Goar and Linz.
The UNESCO-listed Rhine Gorge – a 65 Kilometre-long section of the Middle Rhine between Koblenz and Bingen – is particularly spectacular, with its dramatic and varied natural landscapes which are interspersed with around forty of the region’s most impressive castles and fortifications, as well as a number of charming wine villages.
As you relax on the deck of your river boat, soaking up the sunshine and perhaps enjoying a glass of wine from the vineyards you’re sailing by, you’ll quickly understand why this stunning part of the world is so highly sought-after.
