The Rhine

At 766 miles, the Rhine River is the longest river in western Europe. Its origins have been tracked to the melting glaciers of the Swiss Alps, which once glistened over sparkling quartz pebbles, the original “rhinestones.” Gemstones aside, the Rhine is treasured by more than 58 million souls who live within the nine nations along its path.

So historically significant is the Upper Middle Rhine Valley that it has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
