Remagen - hometown of the Pinger family

Remagen, the hometown of the Pinger family, is just 50 km south of Cologne on the left bank of the Rhine. The place was once a Celtic settlement and after that a Roman fort. Remagen became world famous in the 2nd World War, thanks to the struggle for the “Bridge of Remagen” and the 60’s film of the same name. Today the Peace Museum is housed in the surviving piers.

In the city centre you will find a pedestrian area with stylish shops, interesting cafes and traditional, cozy pubs. Narrow streets with ancient Roman names will take you from the old town to the Rhine promenade. The romantic “Father Rhine” enchants people who stand on its banks even today.
