scottishvisitor Says: A large slate rock lumes up near to the narrowest and deepest part of the River Rhine. Legend tells of a siren named Lorelei who sat near by bewitching the hearts of sailors while she sang from on high combing her golden hair. The sailors were so transfixed by her beauty and...
Luggage and bags: Travelling along the scenic Rhine region you won't find many shops. Take what you need for a day trip in a small rucksack, I always have some nibbles with me in case I get the munchies
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Visiting old castles can be hard on your feet - stairs are hewn out of solid rock and are rough as well as steep. Watch your footing and wear solid comfortable shoes.
Photo Equipment: Again because of the rural region take plenty of film or camera chip and some spare batteries just in case

I mentioned to our travel companion about my two Son's seperate school trips to Boppard many years ago. With some time to spare, Ingrid suggested we have a quick look. We weren't there long but spent an enjoyable time at one of the many pavement cafes beside the lovely Market Square. We had seen a group of Welsh school children at Marksburg earlier and met up with them again - so Boppard looks like it is still a popular place with school and youth parties.

Rheinsteig is the name of a hiking-path that will take you high above the Rhine-valley from one castle to the other and Marksburg and the closeby castles of Sterrenberg and Liebenstein in Kamp-Bornhofen are just some of the places you will get to at this side of the river Rhine.
320 km is the total distance of Rheinsteig between Bonn in the north and Wiesbaden in the south.
Here are some useful links :
Campingsites along the Rheinsteig
Youth-Hostels along the Rheinsteig
Hotels along the Rheinsteig
Equipment: Hiking the Rheinsteig is possible all year long and the local people say, that there isnt any bad weather at all, just the equipment might be bad.
In any case it makes sense to check the weatherforcast for this area first !
