It has been a long time since the Thaler was a real currency. These days, at least on the Rhine, it is experiencing a renaissance. Between Cologne and Speyer there are currently a number of cultural institutions, tourist offices, restaurants and hotels that have joined forces to use the Rheintaler® as a common marketing platform.

With the Rheintaler® in their pocket, proud bearers can obtain special discounts or free extra services with a variety of partners, including museums, river cruise companies, cable cars, castles, hotels and restaurants. The coins simply have to be shown.

The Romantik Hotel Schloss Rheinfels sells the Rheintaler® with its own design and guests who arrive with the Rheintaler® in their luggage are treated to the following advantages:

Hotel guests: Upgrade to the next room category (subject to availability). Restaurant guests: A complementary 'Lorelei duckling' (house cocktail).
