Castles of the Romantic Rhine

  • Walk along the Upper Rhine Valley, between historic castles on the Rheinsteig
  • Exploring romantic vineyard riverscapes on footpaths high above the river
  • The Loreley rock, made famous in song, at the narrowest point of the Rhine
  • Walking between picturesque villages and historic hilltop fortresses
  • Sipping a Riesling in a timber-framed tavern in Rüdesheim’s Drosselgasse
The picture-book Upper Middle Rhine Valley is perfect for walkers and wine lovers. Discover countless (more than 30!) hilltop castles and stately homes as you follow the Rheinsteig hiking trail along the eastern side of this UNESCO World Heritage region. Walk from Koblenz to the pretty wine village of Rüdesheim. Rewarding, undulating footpaths offer panoramic views, as you wander through vineyards, deep gorges and quiet woodland. Myths and legends abound here, such as the story of Loreley, the beautiful siren of the rocks. And of course, there’s the world-class wines, which you can sample as you drink in the rich cultural heritage of the romantic Rhineland.
