The Rhine valley from Bingen to Koblenz
The Rhine has covered two thirds of its 1320 km long trip from the Swiss
Alps (canton Graubünden) to the North Sea by the time it meets a
branch of the Hunsrück near Bingen. Starting here, it flows through the
slate mountains of the middle Rhine region. The traveler passes through
a very narrow 300m deep ravine where the Hunsrück is a natural boundary.
Then he traverses the fascinating landscape of Hunsrück on his way
Along this way he sees world famous
places such as Bacharach, Kaub, or St. Goar with the overwhelming
rock of Loreley. He sees Boppard with its impressive Rhine loop and
picturesque Rhens. At Koblenz, at the mouth of the Mosel in the Rhine,
he has reached the most northerly point of the branch of the Hunsrück.
It isn't far from here and the Rhine widens, with all the narrows left
behind. The low plains now determine the flow of the Rhine to the North
