The Middle Rhine (German Mittelrhein), also known as the Rhine Valley, is the most scenic and interesting section of the Rhine River. It starts in the city of Bonn and flows downstream to the city of Bingen.

As it courses through the Rhine Valley, it passes by steep hills topped with castles and other ruins, as well as vineyards and charming villages.

The lower section, from Koblenz to Bingen, known as the Rhine Gorge, has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Boat touring is the best way to see the region, but it is also possible to visit various locations along the river by land.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
