Upper Middle Rhine Valley

Brief description

The 65km-stretch of the Middle Rhine Valley, with its castles, historic towns and vineyards, graphically illustrates the long history of human involvement with a dramatic and varied natural landscape. It is intimately associated with history and legend and for centuries has exercised a powerful influence on writers, artists and composers.

Unesco WHS list ref:  1066

I have visited parts of this site over the years – I remember a river trip and climb of the Lorelei with a school group.
