Bingen

(bĭng`ən) or

Bingen am Rhein

(äm rīn), city (1994 pop. 25,020), Rhineland-Palatinate, W Germany, where the Nahe River enters the Rhine. A busy river port, railroad junction, and tourist center, Bingen is also noted for its wine and tobacco manufactures. Dating from pre-Roman times, Bingen was fortified (1st cent. B.C.) by Drusus. In 983 it came under the rule of the archbishops of Mainz. Near Bingen, on a rock in the Rhine, is the famous Mäuseturm [Ger.,=mice tower], where, according to legend, Archbishop Hatto I of Mainz was devoured (913) by mice for wronging his subjects.
