The Loreley Valley, Germany

The Loreley Valley (Lorelei Valley)

The Rhine Valley from Kaub to Boppard is often called the Loreley Valley. Here the river is at its narrowest, flows fastest, and the valley is at its steepest, with the most dramatic scenery and several castles. The whole stretch of the Rhine from Rüdesheim and Bingen to Koblenz and Lahnstein are a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site.

Valleys of the Rhineland

Kaub, St Goar and Boppard are of course well worth a visit, all of them small towns situated along the river, as are the castles, fortresses and churches nestled in most of the Loreley towns. The famous Marksburg and the Enemy Brothers castles are among the more notable sights here.
