Synopsis: Excerpt from A Guide to the Rhine: Describing a Summer Tour From Dusseldorf to Mainz, Including Visits to the Valleys of the Nahe, Lahn, Moselle, Ahr, the Siebengebirge, Etc

The Rhine with its 730 miles is the longest river of Germany, and the largest and most beautiful part of its course is the 440 miles which are in German territory. The navigable part of the Rhine is usually divided into three sections. The part from Basel to Bingen is called the Upper Rhine ('Oberrhein'); the Middle Rhine ('Mittelrhein') stretches from Bingen to Cologne and is 100 miles in length; at the 'holy city', the Lower Rhine ('Niederrhein') begins, and extends to the mouth of the river in the North Sea, a distance of 215 miles.

The Rhenish 'Schiefergebirge', which the river breaks through from Bingen downwards, consists chiefly of greywacke schist, with islands of porphyry and trachyte. These rocks belong to the Palaeozoic Period and therefore contain no fossilised animal remains. To be more exact, they belong to the Devonian Age - the latest subdivision of the Palaeozoic Period. At Remagen-Honningen a volcanic zone intervenes, which shows itself in hot and mineral springs here, and also in the Ahr valley.

The shipping trade of the Rhine is as old as our knowledge of the stream. When the Romans held sway on the banks of the Rhine, we know it was an important highway for commerce, and as early in the Middle Ages as the 10th century, the Rhine was the chief channel for interchange of goods between Germany and England.

Excerpt from A Guide to the Rhine: Describing a Summer Tour From Dusseldorf to Mainz, Including Visits to the Valleys of the Nahe, Lahn, Moselle, Ahr, the Siebengebirge, Etc This book, on its first appearance in German, was received with such great approval by visitors to the Rhine, that the publishers decided to respond to the often-expressed wish for an English edition.
