People long ago believed in water sprites, sirens, nymphs,
whose mischievous presence explained the inexplicable. The Lorelei, a
large rock that soars some 400 feet (120 meters) above the eastern bank of
the Rhine river near St. Goarshausen, Germany, is named for one of these
sirens. The outcropping marks the narrowest part of the river between
Switzerland and the North Sea. A very strong current, a tight turn, and
rocks below the waterline have caused countless boating accidents there,
many blamed on ships’ captains being mesmerized by the song of the Lorelei.
