Rheinberg is a town in the district of Wesel, in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It is situated on the left bank of the Rhine, approx. 10 km (6.2 miles) north of Moers and 15 km (9.3 miles) south of Wesel.
Prince Rupert of the Rhine gained his first military experience fighting alongside the Protestant Frederick Henry, Prince of Orange at the Siege of Rheinberg in 1633.
A century later the Battle of Rheinberg was fought on 12 June 1758, during the Seven Years War.
It is the home town of the supermodel Claudia Schiffer, who still sometimes resides in Xanten, a historic town located about 15 km (9.3 miles) away from Rheinberg.
