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.
It comprises the municipal districts of Rheinberg, Borth, Budberg, and Orsoy.
It is the location of a Commonwealth War Graves Commission cemetery, where 3,327 Commonwealth servicemen of the Second World War are buried or commemorated. The majority of those now buried in the cemetery were airmen re-interred from German cemeteries after the war. The men of the other fighting services buried there mostly lost their lives during the battle of the Rhineland, or in the advance from the Rhine to the Elbe.
It is the home town of Isebell Werth (born July 21, 1969 in Rheinberg), who is a German equestrian and world champion in dressage.
Rheinberg is also home to Underberg, one of the most famous liquor makers in Germany.
