The Rhein-Nahe-Eck is where the river Nahe meets the river Rhein.

The small light-yellow tower is the Mäuseturm: In 1298 the structure became an official customs collection tower. In 1689 it was destroyed by a French army, then rebuilt in 1855 as a Prussian signal tower. To the right is the Castle Ehrenfels, built in 1211.

The Rhein-Nahe-Eck forms the southern limit of the UNESCO Rhine Gorge World Heritage Site.
