One of the most picturesque stretches of the Rhine

Nestled in the gorge of the breathtaking Upper Middle Rhine Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, lies the picturesque medieval town of Sankt Goar. Its location on the west bank of the Rhine river and a stone throw away from the famous Loreley rock makes it one of the most beloved tourist destinations in Germany. Above the town stand the ruins of the famous Castle Rheinfels and across the river lies the sister town of Sankt Goarshausen with its own castles, Katz and Maus (“Cat” and “Mouse”). The English painter William Turner used to spend much time in Sankt Goar, capturing spectacular views of the Rhine in his paintings. The town is conveniently located within easy reach of Frankfurt International Airport (60 to 90 minutes by train, or 70 minutes by car). Other important cities that can easily be reached  include Cologne, Wiesbaden, Mainz, Koblenz, Mannheim and Heidelberg.

The town offers something for everyone – whether you wish to immerse yourself in the rich history of the area, enjoy the impressive scenery and magnificent views, or search for new challenges on foot or bicycle.
