Parked at the Visitor Centre on top, hoping to walk down to the rock. However while we were there, there was a lot of building work going on & the path down was closed off. There is a large exhibition of the area & the...More

The actual Loreley is nothing but a big rock outcropping extending into the Rhine River. The story or myth of Loreley makes the story. There is a relatively small statute of a maiden several hundred yards up the river from the outcropping. It is a...More

There are wonderful views all along the Rhine - this just happens to be one of the more famous places (=a bit more crowded). You can watch a statue of Loreley at the river, on the hill, try the sommerrodelbahn and take a nice walk...More

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
