The Lorelei is a 132 meter high rock along the right bank of the Rhine near the Sankt Goarshausen. The Rhine makes a sharp turn here, which creates a strong current; many ships have been lost here over time. That's about it, the rest is...More

We walked from St Goarshausen to the stairs from the parking below the cliff. Stairs were tough but also very badly kept. Much growth and loose railings. When finally up, most of the plateau was sealed off for construction works. Just a small part was...More

Loreley (spelled correctly and pronounced, “Lor-eh-lie”) rock had incredible views from the top. If you want to see the mermaid statue. Get a map at the visitor center. The statue is located on a peninsula in the river.

We were traveling past this famous point on a Rhine River cruise. It wasn't possible to view the sculpture from the river, but I suppose the flag at the top of the rocky point is its location. Fortunately, our captain was not distracted by this...More

This mass of rock on the right bank of the Rhine in the Rhine Gorge is steeped in folklore. To see it one wonders why. It is an interesting piece of rock like many in the gorge on a very tight bend in the river.Nearby...More
