Celebrated in song and shrouded in legend – the Loreley rock is a 194-metre-high slate cliff towering above the narrowest point of the Rhine near St. Goarshausen.
It became famous for the tale of Loreley, a beautiful but melancholy siren who would sit on the rock and sing as she combed her golden hair. Her beauty and beguiling song distracted passing sailors from the strong currents and their ships smashed to pieces against the rocks. Today, the Loreley is a magnet for tourists from all over the world. In the Loreley visitor centre, an interactive exhibition tells you everything you need to know about the region. The Upper Middle Rhine Valley where the rock is, became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2002.Plan my Germany Vacation Now

Bavarian State Opera
In 1818 Munich finally gained an ‘opera house for all’ in the form of the Royal and National Theatre at Max-Joseph-Platz. By 1825, however, Klenze’s neo-classical structure had to be rebuilt because of a fire, this time with a pillared portico. Since 1875 it has been the venue for the Munich Opera Festival.
The National Theatre is home to Bavaria’s state orchestra, state opera and state ballet. At 2,500 square metres, this is the third-largest opera stage in the world.Plan my Germany Vacation Now
