Due to the very strong current in this area, many boat accidents have been caused here. There is an ancient story that goes along with this famous spot: ancient Rhine Maidens or Sirens lured ships into the rocks by singing their alluring songs to the seamen.

You will also see the castles Sterrenberg, Liebenstein, Maus, Rheinfels und Katz along the way. This trip takes about 1.5 hrs. Roundrip takes 2.5 hrs. See time schedule for the St. Goar and Loreley trip (link below).
