小编摘要:都说莱茵河浪漫,其浪漫之处在于她醉人的风景,在于她动人的传说,在于两岸出产的葡萄酒,更在于其两岸山间点缀的那些中世纪古堡。德国因莱茵河在境内的流域最长,也是保留古堡最多的国家。每座古堡都有自己的名字,


If you want a romantic getaway, there is one European country just as alluring in many ways. It would take weeks to see everything Germany has to offer, but perhaps the most beautiful portion of the country is the Rhine River.

There is something about German architecture that is rough and yet elegant; travel the Rhine River and see why. The Rhine River, which runs through Germany, has been at the center of much of Europe’s history. It once marked the border of Rome’s empire, the easternmost edge of their domain. It was the famous Julius Caesar who brought the region on the western bank under Roman control. Beyond the river the Germanic peoples remained in control of their own lands. Around the beginning of the 5th century AD, these barbarian tribes challenged the failing Roman Empire and claimed large swathes of Europe for themselves, creating the state that would one day become Germany.

What makes the Rhine River so romantic? This waterway is dotted here and there with old German castles. Castles make people think about a time when life was incredibly romantic. Visiting castles gives tourists hope that romanticism is still alive. Castles also give us a look into the past. The castles which are today such an unmistakable feature of the Rhine landscape date back to the Middle Ages. They are famous in their own right.

These castles were built in dangerous times, by feudal lords, who, so far from cherishing any romantic notions, built them with one simple aim in mind: to protect their lands from marauders and predatory neighbors. They chose mountain-tops as strategically ideal situations, and we today are still often prone to see them as objects of mystery and splendor, forgetting the warlike function for which they were built. Some of these castles are now just dramatic ruins, while others can be toured or have even been developed into hotels. There are also many charming old towns and villages along the river that offer accommodation and facilities for tourists.


如果你想寻找一个浪漫的度假之地,有一个欧洲国家有许多迷人的好去处。如若赏尽德国的一切美景得需要几周的时间,但也许莱茵河才是这个国家最美丽的所在。

德国的建筑粗犷而又雅致;来一次莱茵之旅,便可探明个中究竟。流经德国的莱茵河是欧洲大部分历史的中心地带。它曾经是罗马帝国最东边的界河。著名的尤利乌斯?凯撒大帝将莱茵河西岸的疆域纳入了罗马的统治之下。河对岸,日耳曼人民保留了自己土地的统治权。大约在公元5世纪初的时候,这些野蛮的部族挑战摇摇欲坠的罗马帝国,将欧洲大片土地收到自己的统治之下,创立了日后称为“德国”的国家。

是什么造就了莱茵河的浪漫?莱茵河两岸,古老的城堡星罗棋布。城堡让人们想起生活无限浪漫的时代。参观城堡让游客感到浪漫主义依稀存在。城堡让我们回首过去。这些城堡可回溯至中世纪,如今显然已成为莱茵河的特色风光。莱茵河古堡本身已享誉盛名。

这些城堡是封建领主建造的,那是个危机四伏的时代。领主们当时远没有任何浪漫的想法,建造城堡只有一个简单目的:保护他们的土地免受强盗和巧取豪夺的邻居们的威胁。山顶是他们选择的理想战略地点。今天我们依然倾向于将城堡看作神秘而壮观的建筑,却遗忘了城堡的战备功能,这才是它们被建造的原因。现在,一些城堡已变成了宏伟的废墟,其他的可供游客参观,有的甚至还被改造成了酒店。莱茵河两岸还有许多迷人的古老村镇,可为游客提供住宿和便利设施。
