There are so many beautiful things to see when cruising the Rhine--vineyards, castles, villages--but this tiny statue is not one of them. The legend attached to the statue is much more interesting than the statue itself.

We were on a Vicking river cruise on the Rhine and were given a brief history of this statue. It is not huge, and kind of blends in with the surrounding vegetation. Be sure to have your camera ready, since the ships go by it...More

It is a bit difficult to find it, because it is over the peninsula part of the Rhein river. However nice statue, Lorelei, the mermaid at the legend.

If you are on the west bank you can get the ferry across the river and walk to the Lorelei and get great photo's under her. If not walk along the river and look across to her.

You can walk to te statue, but difficult if you are old and can not walk very well. There is no place to sit by the statue.
