Fabulous views along the Romantic Rhine
Roman traces and the highest density of castles in the world invite exploration

The Romantic Rhine stretches from Bingen/Rüdesheim to Remagen/Unkel and is correctly described as one of the most beautiful stretches of the Rhine. More than 60 castles and palaces, the largest density of castles in the world, illustrate the enormous historical significance of the region. But the Romans already left their mark on the region.

The Lower Germanic Limes ended in Remagen on the left bank of the Rhine, while the Upper Germanic-Raetian Limes began with watchtower 1/1 in Rheinbrohl on the right bank. The legacy of the Romans is still visible today. For example, they established viticulture along the slate slopes of the Rhine, where the popular Riesling grows today. The region still attracts visitors from all over the world today. Numerous certified hiking trails, including the Rheinsteig and RheinBurgenWeg long-distance hiking trails, lead through the entire region and repeatedly encounter traces of the Romans. They pass Roman town foundations such as Remagen, Andernach and Boppard and lead to the remains of forts, ramparts and moats as well as replica watchtowers. Cyclists can explore the exciting sights both on the right and left bank of the Rhine thanks to the Rhine Cycle Route. Those who want to take it a little easier can take a leisurely trip on an excursion boat on the Rhine and enjoy the views of this unique cultural landscape.
