Remagen - Germany

Remagen lies on the left bank of the Rhine River, southeast of Bonn in western Germany. It originated as the Roman fortress Ricomagnus and has some Roman remains and a 12th-century gate. However its main claim to fame was in World War II when the Allies captured the Remagen railway bridge across the Rhine intact in 1945. This was the first Allied bridgehead across the Rhine and although the bridge is long gone one of its towers houses the Friedenmuseum with exhibits commemorating the last days of the war. Remagen now has a series of hotels along the Rhine waterfront and exports the well-known Apollinaris mineral water obtained from a local spring. There are more than 30 cruises calling at this port.
