The Rhine between Bingen and Bonn, flows as the Middle Rhine through the Rhine Gorge, a formation created by erosion, which happened at about the same rate as an uplift in the region, leaving the river at about its original level, and the surrounding lands raised. This gorge is quite deep, about 130 meters from the top of the rocks down to the average water-line.

The upper half of the middle rhine from Bingen (Rheinkilometer 529) to Koblenz (Rheinkilometer 590) is a UNESCO World Heritage Site (2002) with more than 40 castles and fortresses from the Middle Ages (see links) and many lovely wine-villages. The lower half from Koblenz (Rheinkilometer 590) to Bonn (Rheinkilometer 653) is famous for the formerly volcanic Siebengebirge with the Drachenfels. Both parts together are known as "the romantic Rhine".
