Trip on the Rhine

On Saturday 16.06.2007 we spent a good time together in Boppard, on the river Rhine and in St.Goar. We had a nice trip by boat to see Loreley and a lot of other beautiful places.

The Loreley is a rock on the eastern bank of the Rhine near St. Goarshausen, which soars some 120 meters above the water line. It marks the narrowest part of the river between Switzerland and the North Sea. A very strong current and rocks below the waterline have caused many boat accidents there.

Loreley is also the name of one of the beautiful Rhine Maidens who lured navigators of this river to their doom with their alluring singing, much as the ancient Greek Sirens did.

The weather played its part and fortunately we enjoyed a sunny day. We took some time to visit Boppard and to walk along its lanes. It was a pleasure to meet new and old students of IGSN and to have fun on the Rhine
