Travel video about the Mittel Rhein Boat Tour in Germany. Our journey begins in Koblenz. In around 1000 A.D. a castle was built on a knoll on the east bank of the Rhine and Castle Ehrenbreitstein gradually developed. Europe’s second largest fortress was given its appearance as we see it today, between 1817 and 1828. From the Middle Ages to the late eighteenth century, Koblenz was the residence of the powerful archbishops of Trier and in 1794 it was taken over by France and in 1815, by Prussia. Following the Rhine, our journey leads to Boppard where town houses, stately homes and churches form the romantic old town. After the invasion of the Alemanni, a city wall was built in order to protect what was a toll castle and today the town has developed into an attractive tourist destination surrounded by woods and vineyards. We pass by a high rock on a sharp bend where the Rhine is barely a hundred and thirteen metres wide. Legend tells of a beautiful mermaid, Loreley , who enchanted and distracted sailors with her singing in order that their boats would be destroyed on the rocks. Soon, the river becomes more tranquil. Slowly the craggy slopes change to vineyards and the river valley widens. Bacharach nestles in the confluence of the Steeger Valley, into the extensive Rhine Valley, protected by a sturdy wall. Above the town is the Stahleck Fortress that was first recorded in 1095 and became the residence of the Count Of Palatine On The Rhine, in 1142. The conclusion of our journey, Rüdesheim is a picturesque town that boasts more visitors than residents, its sunny location making it ideal for viticulture. A mediaeval church, wooden buildings and stately homes, and the famous Drosselgasse, characterise the city. The Middle Rhine Valley reflects the history of Europe. With cultural monuments and cultivated countryside, crowded settlements along narrow banks and various noble castles situated on rocky ledges, it is a reflection of the romantic history of times gone by. -------------- Watch more travel videos ► https://goo.gl/MXPgSs Join us.

Best known for its famous Oktoberfest and World War II history, Germany is also home to some of Europa’s most beautiful scenery, fairytale castles, important historic sites and lively party scenes. Located in the heart of Europe, Germany maintains the continent’s most powerful economy.
Come explore the must-see sights in the Romantic Rhine Valley along the Rhine River, specifically the 67 kilometres between Rudesheim and Koblenz that is the UNESCO World Heritage Site called the "Upper Middle Rhine Valley". Lots of castles, fortresses, monuments, quaint towns, incredible scenery and (of course) the Rhine River. We go on a Rhine boat trip which includes the Loreley Rock, and then visit the Niderwald Monument, Oberwesel, Rheinfels and Stolzenfels Castles before calling in at Ehrenbreitstein Fortress and Deutsches Eck.

Check out: This is Bavaria: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Emm7ulctwCE&feature=youtu.be This is Baden-Württemberg: https://youtu.be/H91vzCl9rbM Switch on subtitles to see the names of the cities and locations! The video scenes of Berchtesgaden and the Ramsauer Alps are from AbuShakra, who gave me permission to use them: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCG9Ueqf2gujTdd8avCt2fXg/about https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DAtvupNKzEU All credit goes to him, pls check out his channel! Many of the scenes are from "Deutschland von Oben" and other drone videos, credit goes to them (I can add you any time in the description, just write a comment thanks!) I claim the fair use for this video, as I did not just upload videos 1 to 1, but made a remix of scenes, so my own touch is in it as well. This is Germany. From the rough Alps to the beaches of the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. With its baroque bavarian monasteries, beer gardens and mountain huts and the half timbered houses in its romantic towns. Majestic gothic cathedrals, renaissance styled operas and mighty skyscrapers shape this land as well as the Rhein river with its medieval castles. The palaces and historical monuments give Germany its soul. The modern Autobahnen, airports and economical hubs assure the strength and prosperity of this country in the heart of Europe. Germany is tradition and modernism in one, Germany is an old nation that has been shaped by its people for over a thousand years and will continue its way to a bright future in accordance, friendship and respect to its neighbours and the world. Germany is my fatherland and the country that gives me my unique identity. We have dark and bright years in our history and yet we arose from ruins after every conflict and kept our place among the first nations on this world. Germany is more than a piece of land. Germany is an idea, a spirit created by generations of people. Germany is a flame, and every German is one spark and part of a greater community.

The Rhine Gorge is a popular name for the Upper Middle Rhine Valley, a 65 km section of the Rhine between Koblenz and Bingen in Germany. It was added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in June 2002 for a unique combination of geological, historical, cultural and industrial reasons.
