The Upper Middle Rhine Valley is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. I have now seen about 40 or so sites out of 981, so still I have a lot of travelling to do.
You can drive along the river and you can cruise along the river. Either way, the views of the old castles and small towns is quite enjoyable. This was day 11.
A visit to the Niederwald Landscape Park was first on the list.
The Germania Statue, celebrating the German Empire at the end of the Franco-Prussian War.
A view of the Rhine and the valley from the monument:
Castles along the Rhine: Klopp Castle
The view from Liebenstein Castle in Boppard:
We had a delicious lunch of sauerbraten and met a very charming proprietor.
The Sterrenberg castle 'next door':
Farewell to the Rhine Valley.
