St. Goar (Sankt Goar)
One of many highlights along the UNESCO-listed Middle Rhine Valley, the small town of St. Goar (Sankt Goar) sits on the banks of the Rhine river. Along with its picturesque medieval buildings, St. Goar is most famous for its 13th-century Rheinfels Castle (Burg Rheinfels) and the landmark Loreley Rock, which stands opposite.
 
The Basics
The most popular way to discover St. Goar is as part of a Rhine river cruise. KD Rhine Passes are available from Mainz, Cologne, Koblenz, and Bonn, and offer hop-on hop-off boats in both directions, all stopping at St. Goar. It’s also possible to visit the town on a full-day round-trip cruise from Koblenz, including magnificent views of the Loreley Rock and Rheinfels Castle from the water. In St. Goar, pay a visit to the Rheinfels Castle, stroll around the atmospheric old town, and then enjoy a traditional lunch at one of the riverside pubs.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • St. Goar’s small size makes it easy to get around the town on foot.
  • KD Rhine Passes offer unlimited boat access for 24 hours.
  • St. Goar’s Tourist Information Office is located on Heerstraße, a short walk from the port.
 
How to Get There
St. Goar is located in the Middle Rhine Valley between Oberwesel and Kamp-Bornhofen, and the most scenic way to arrive is by boat. From Koblenz, it’s about a 3.5-hour boat ride to reach St. Goar, but regular trains also run from Frankfurt, Mainz, and Koblenz. The closest international airport is in Frankfurt.
 
When to Get There
Summer is peak season in St. Goar and the small town can be overwhelmed by day-trippers throughout July and August. Opting to stay the night is the best way to experience the town without the crowds. For the most spectacular views, visit during the annual Rhine in Flames festival in September, when the town hosts a dazzling fireworks and lights display.
 
The UNESCO-Listed Rhine Valley
While the Rhine Valley runs all the way to Cologne, the Upper Middle Rhine Valley between Koblenz and Bingen is arguably the most beautiful stretch and is protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Highlights include the winemaking town of Rüdesheim, the historic Abbey of St. Hildegard of Bingen, Loreley Rock, and Ehrenbreitstein Fortress in Koblenz, or you could just sit back admire the views—think vine-covered mountains, hilltop castles, and riverside medieval towns.
