The description translates roughly as:

Bingen. “The funniest town along the Rhine, this is the town of Bingen,” sings Kobell, and he is right. The friendly, lively town full of genuine Rhenish life has a glorious location at the entrance of the romantic Felsenthal, which enters the Rhine  here. The beauty of the feminine woman in Bingen is profound: “See Meenz’s child, where is it from?” From Binge. ”

–This section of the Rhine is known as the Rhine Gorge. The town looks much the same, but the monument shown on the far bluff appears to have been removed.

Rüdesheim, a cozy, old-fashioned wine-growing village, is situated at the foot of the Niederwald, unspoilt by its magnificent vineyards, whose yields have made the name of the city famous. From the height there appears a great national monument.

–The last sentence refers to the Niederwalddenkmal, which was erected to celebrate the formation of the German empire after the 1870 Franco-Prussian War.
