Discover the World Heritage Middle Rhine Valley

Culture and landscape between Koblenz and Bingen

The Middle Rhine Valley is one of the most fascinating landscapes in Germany. Historic towns and villages. Castles and palaces. Many more than 1000 years old. Fantastic nature experiences. And a mighty river that connects it all. Not for nothing was the Upper Middle Rhine Valley - between Bingen and Koblenz - designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2002.

The fortress city of Koblenz is the gateway to the Upper Middle Rhine Valley. It is one of the oldest cities in Germany and is located at the confluence of the Moselle and Rhine rivers. One of its most popular sights is also located right here. The opulent Kaiser Wilhelm Monument at the German Corner. Also, don't miss the unique cable car ride to Ehrenbreitstein Fortress. While you float in the gondola high above the river, a fantastic view opens up over Koblenz, the Rhine and the Moselle.

Fantastic city tour on the banks of the Rhine

History and architecture in Boppard and Bacharach

The pretty town of Boppard is characterized by viticulture. The wide vineyards of the Bopparder Hamm shape the bends of the Rhine. The view from the water is particularly impressive. Perhaps the occasion for a romantic boat trip?

A highlight in Boppard itself is the old Roman fort. The ruins of the military camp date back to the 4th century. Especially the remains of the city wall are exceptionally well preserved and definitely worth a visit. There are other fascinating buildings to see in the historic city. The Electoral Castle. The imposing St. Severus Church. The municipal museum. A walk through the Marienberg Park is also worthwhile.

Of all the towns in the Upper Middle Rhine Valley, Bacharach is one of the most romantic. Winding, historic alleys. Enchanting half-timbered houses. The proud Stahleck Castle. The best impression of the picturesque town you get in the Malerwinkel. Also visit the numerous old tower buildings in Bacharach and enjoy great views.

Romantic nature in the World Heritage Middle Rhine Valley

The most beautiful landscapes between Hunsrück and Taunus

The landscape in the Middle Rhine Valley World Heritage Site is breathtaking. After all, it does not bear this title for nothing. The Rhine has carved its way through the Rhenish Slate Mountains with unbridled force. The result is imposing steep rock faces. The queen among them is the famous Loreley. The mighty slate rock near St. Goarshausen is worth a visit not only because of its size. It also has an exciting history that inspired Heinrich Heine to write his Loreley song. So listen carefully during your visit.

Joshua collector

The Rochusberg is a beautiful corner for walks with views of Rheinhessen, the Nahe Valley and the Rheingau plus the Rhine. A place of strength on a line with the Donnersberg. Hence the Rochus Chapel, which is definitely worth a visit with its stone carvings as well as the grove around it. In autumn all the colors of the vine leaves from green to yellow and ocher to red...

Christopher Kubaseck

Great tourist information, nice staff, in a beautiful city.


One has from the castle Klopp in Bingen on the Rhine, a beautiful view over Bingen, the Rhine shipping and the many vineyards. Interesting is also the castle fountain, and if you are still fit enough, you can climb the 150 stairs up the tower, here you are compensated with a great panoramic view. Also in history, you can expand his horizons up here still something.

Paul Stöckl

The Rochusberg is very beautiful for hiking all around. Everywhere are benches to rest and picnic and enjoy the beautiful view in every direction. Partially at various vantage points are available barbecue areas that you can use after prior registration.

Silvia W.

Rochusberg is a beautiful place, for walking and recharging your batteries. There is ample parking at the Rochuskirche pilgrimage church. A beautiful circular path with references to Hildegard von Bingen lead through the vineyards. The view from the Rochuskirche into the Rhine valley is beautiful.

Manuela Seiter

The museum at the river is great built and very informative, we were there especially because of Hildegard von Bingen. Not to be missed!


The park at the Mäuseturm and the beautifully designed Kulturufer are essentially thanks to the successful State Garden Show of 2008. When the weather is nice, countless visitors flock to this place on weekends. It is simply a beautiful destination for young and old with a wonderful view over the Rhine.

Bettina Link

The Kulturufer, a former state garden show area from 2008, is still beautifully maintained and diversified 10 years later, invites you to relax and linger, gardens above, including harbor promenade, playground and catering also available, free parking.

C. Sch.

The Kulturufer is a beautiful, well-maintained facility that is definitely worth a visit. In addition to the ship berths, there is a well-balanced gastronomy. There are free (!), clean toilets, which other cities can take an example! This park is a success!
