Rhine Valley, Rhineland-Palatinate

4.6
#3 of 114 in Parks in Rhineland-Palatinate
A good way to see Rhine Valley is from the Rhine river, taking advantage of one of the many companies that offer boat trips. Alternatively, the valley is perfect for a pleasant, scenic drive or bike ride. This area is packed with medieval castles and old churches. Visit the Burg Landeck, a ruined hill castle, for superb views that go as far as the Black Forest. People have cultivated vineyards in this area for centuries, and it is still the capital of the German wine industry. Visit some of the vineyards to sample some excellent wine. Be sure to stop off at some of the charming towns along the Rhine.
