The banks of the Rhine are also famous as a wine region, with the expansive vineyards between Rüdesheim and Koblenz being an especially impressive site (duration: approx. 1 hr. 40 min.). Here you will find attractions such as Rheinstein Castle, considered to be the most beautiful castle in the area, Reichenstein Castle, the area's oldest, as well as the legendary Lorelei and Deutsches Eck (“German Corner”), where the Moselle River joins the Rhine.
Deutsches Eck in Koblenz is the point where the Rhine and Moselle merge, and on that corner is a monument to Kaiser Wilhelm I, the first emperor of the German Empire. The monument was erected in 1897, destroyed during World War II, and rebuilt in 1993. This equestrian statue overlooks Deutsches Eck from a height of 37 meters.
Access is easy, only about an hour by car from Frankfurt, Germany's main hub for international air travel. With a long and comfortable sunny season that lasts from spring to autumn, why not take a trip down the Rhine with a glass of German white wine in hand as you enjoy the exquisite scenery?
