Anyone traveling along the Middle Rhine should definitely plan a detour to Kaub on the Rhine. The romantic wine town with its medieval center has a lot to offer visitors. On the historic market square, for example, is the impressive Kauber church from the 12th century. The elevated walkway over the town wall, which was intended to make it easier for residents to get to their homes on the Rhine during high water, is also well worth seeing. Just like the Adolfstürmchen, the Metzgergasse, the inner courtyard of the Electoral Palatinate Amtshaus and the antique book museum in the historic town center. Kaub is also known as the largest wine-growing area on the Middle Rhine and the former headquarters of Rhenish slate mining.
