    What is so romantic about The Romantic Rhine ?

    People of Germany have named the Rhine "Romantic" . What is so romantic about the place or is it just a name they have given to the Rhine? I'm really curious about this.

    This is an interesting question. Personally I didn't find it to be anything special, however I guess generally large bodies of water are always considered a bit romantic

    I suppose it's because of the picturesque towns which lie on its banks, although they're not all like that. I was in the Rhineland region last month. I stayed in Cologne most of the week and went on a cruise down the Rhine while I was there, and it wasn't particularly romantic, as obviously there's a lot of industry of the riverbanks in larger cities. However, I went to Koblenz for a day and it was lovely, with hillsides, castles and cable cars by the river - I assue that's the romantic imagery they based the nickname on.

    I saw the Rhine river. I didn't know it's called the romantic Rhine. Some places along the river are beautiful, maybe that is the reason why it is considered romantic.
