Loreley Germany

Do you dream of rushing rivers and treacherous peaks? The Loreley measures over 400 feet high and carves into one of the narrowest, deepest curves of the Rhine river. During the middle ages, Saint Goar devoted his life to rescuing sailors who lost their ships to the dangerous curve around this cliff. A quiet murmuring sound can be heard from waterfalls around the cliff, which inspired fictional tales of beauties who sat at the curve of the Rhine, distracting sailors and leading them to watery doom. Others have imagined dwarves and other mythical creatures haunting the cliff. It is truly worth visiting this mystical destination.
