From Düsseldorf, we made our way to the Romantic Rhine. The Romantic part of the Rhine is actually the middle Rhine section located between Koblenz and Mainz. This is where our roadtrip changed a little bit. We had mistakenly assumed that most of the “romantic” part (meaning the castles) was just north of Koblenz. In fact, it was actually south. So our plan to drive to Koblenz and then head down the Mosel River to Trier had to be tweaked a little bit. But more on that later.
