Numerous romantic castles and fortresses have been built along the banks of the Rhine between Cologne and Mainz and they have many exciting stories to tell. The UNESCO World Heritage Site "Upper Middle Rhine Valley" is very beautiful and rich in tales and adventures.
The Rhine in this area pushes its way through rocks and passes towns like Koblenz, which are over 2000 years old and have old towns with many timber framed houses. This is the ideal landscape for a beautiful and relaxing holiday. Last but not least many of these towns between Mainz and Cologne are home to some noble wines and regional delicacies, which make this journey also a culinary one.
