Sankt Goar

Sankt Goar is a town on the west bank of the Middle Rhine in the Rhein-Hunsrück-Kreis (district) in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. It belongs to the Verbandsgemeinde of Sankt Goar-Oberwesel, whose seat is in the town of Oberwesel.Sankt Goar is well known for its central location in the Rhine Gorge, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since July 2002. Above the town stand the ruins of Burg Rheinfels, one of the castles for which the Middle Rhine is famous, and across the river lies the sister town of Sankt Goarshausen with its own castles, Katz and Maus (“Cat” and “Mouse”). The famous Lorelei rock is close-by, slightly upstream on the opposite bank.GeographyLocationSankt Goar lies on the Rhine Gorge, the narrow gap on the Rhine through the Rhenish Massif. The part of the gorge on the left bank is the edge of the Hunsrück, facing which on the right bank is the edge of the Taunus. The characteristic narrow-valley form came into being through downcutting in a massif that was undergoing an uplift.
