<font color=red><B> This is a picture of the famous Lorelei Cliff which is located towards the middle of the Rhine River section I toured. It's somewhere south of Boppard but north of St. Goar. This cliff is famous because old sailors who used to use this river believed there was a ghost who lured their boats into the cliff by her beauty. I guess she was named Lorelei? It was hard to hear the commentator on the boat! This is one of the 'hardest' stretches of the river to navigate because the cliff juts out so sharply and the bend in the river is horrid.
