The Rural Municipality of Rhineland is a former rural municipality (RM) in the Canadian province of Manitoba. It was originally incorporated as a rural municipality on February 14, 1880.[1] It ceased on January 1, 2015 as a result of its provincially mandated amalgamation with the Town of Gretna and the Town of Plum Coulee to form the Municipality of Rhineland.[2]

The former RM is located in the southern part of the province, along its border with the state of North Dakota in the United States. It had a population of 4,125 persons in the 2006 census, a slight decrease from the 4,183 reported in the 2001 Census. There is a national historic site at Neubergthal, which was officially designated in 1998 as Neubergthal Street Village.


According to Statistics Canada, the former RM had an area of 953.42 km² (386.12 sq mi).
