Rhine editions in German
The first book in the series, Rheinreise, was first published by another dealer, Fr. Röhling. It is therefore not strictly a Baedeker (although Karl Baedeker took over the Röhling business in 1832). The first guidebook published by Baedeker in German is therefore Moselreise 1.
The Moselle joins the Rhine at Coblence - Baedeker's first place of business, so it is not surprising that the first guidebooks should have covered the picturesque valleys of these two rivers.
Bad Bertrich is a small spa town in the Eifel range, north of the Moselle. It is unique in being the smallest place ever to have a dedicated Baedeker edition.
