St.Goarhausen (Rhine Valley)

Sankt Goarshausen is a tourist town located on the eastern shore of the Rhine, in the section known as the Rhine Gorge, directly across the river from Sankt Goar. It lies approximately 30 km south of Koblenz, and it is above all famous for the Lorelei rock nearby.The most important economic areas for St. Goarshausen are tourism and wine making. In earlier times was the town an important place along the Rhein for fishing and as an embarcation area. Today, the formerly very busy town is losing its importance and relies more and more on tourism.

Great shot, well composed. Love that castle half way up the mountain.

I was on a 3 hour return cruise to the Lorelei rock in June 2012. I remember this scene from the water. Thanks Jose for showing these places I visited last year.

A very pretty view from there Jose... looks slightly misty and not a particularly warm spot to be. v
