Overlooking the small town of Sankt Goar is the Burg Rheinfels Castle Ruin located above the left (West) bank of the rhein constructed in 1245 by Count Diether V of Katzenelnbogen.  After expansions, it was the largest fortress in the Middle Rhein Valley between Koblenz and Mainz and the largest castle overlooking the Rhine.

St. Goar is one of many small towns spread through the Rhine valley in Germany. There are scatters of hotels, wine stores and popular souvenir shops such as:  Birkenstock Sandals, Steiff Teddy Bears, German beer stein, and Cuckoo clocks.  There are also many places to stop for ice cream, coffee, or try some of the local delicacies. 

This Rhine Valley region is beautifully covered with slopes of vineyards many are of Riesling Grapes.  The Rhine still maintains its reputation for producing some of the best sweet white wines in the world. 

Adventures at the Rhine are:  Rhine River cruise, castle tours, bicycling, hiking, wine and brandy tasting excursions.

What not to miss are:  The Flying Bridge Festival on Easter Monday, The Castle Market and Knightly Tournament at Burg Rheinfels on First weekend in June, and The Rhine in Flame Fireworks from Burg Katz near Sankt Goarshausen, Burg Rheinfels in the middle of the Rhine on the third weekend in September.  Here is a link to Sankt Goar Tourist Information
