    Born into a large bourgeoisie family in Innsbruck, Franz Richard Unterberger studied at the Academy of Munich under Clemens von Zimmermann (1788-1869) and Julius Lange (1817-1878). Following this, he attended the Academy of Weimar, before moving to Düsseldorf to work with Oswald von Achenbach (1827-1905) at the Academy of Düsseldorf.

    Unterberger felt that the market might be more lucrative in Belgium, and therefore moved to Brussels in 1864, a place he would return to throughout his life. As international tourism grew during this period, Unterberger's works, which depicted many of the popular European resorts, and included views of Italy, England, Norway, Denmark, and France, found a ready market amongst the burgeoning middle classes.

    Die Goldene Meile bei Remagen depicts a very fertile strip of land along the Rhein river, between the cities of Bad Breisig, Sinzig and Remagen, which earned its name due to the picturesque beauty of the landscape and the strategic economic importance of its location. Densely riddled with medieval castles and churches, the Golden Mile was the centerpiece of the Rhein tourism of the 19th Century.
