There are places that have a very special charisma, an indescribable magic. Here too - at the confluence of the Rhine and Nahe with a view of the legendary Mouse Tower - people were fascinated by the waterfront at all times, trade routes were used on and by the river, travelers from all over the world lingered. "Bingen is a friendly and beautiful city" said the French writer Victor Hugo on his trip to the Rhine in the 19th century and already centuries before, St. Hildegard founded her monastery Rupertsberg at this exposed place. Today, the city presents itself on the river with an attractive tourist infrastructure, which brings to life the heritage of 2000 years of history.
