This photo tour can be something of a hike, but it offers many of the most famous viewpoints in the Middle-Rhine. The first famous scene is of Kaub with its two castles from the opposite side of the river. Then there is the panorama over Bacharach with its medieval spires and its dramatic vineyards.
This is less of a hike and more of a photo-tour to one of the most fantastic parts of the Middle-Rhine. In particular, the picture of the Castle Katz overlooking the cliffs of the Loreley is among the most iconic in Germany. To see this view for yourself, as well as several others, you can simply follow the path here.
