Dra’chenfels (Dragon-rocks).
 
So called from the legendary dragon killed there by Siegfried, the hero of the Nibelungen-Lied.
       
“The castled crag of Drachenfels
       
Frowns o’er the wide and winding Rhine,
       
Whose breast of waters broadly swells
       
Between the banks which bear the vine.”
