    Braubach

    July 25, 2016 in Germany

    For the second time, we drove the van on to a Rhein ferry that took us to the other sidw of the river. Whilst the services were locked up, the view from Braubach's Rheinside stopover was impressive with Marksburg, the only castle on the Rhein never to have been destroyed, looming above us on the cliffs behind. We took a well signposted walk up the steep hill to the castle and looked around the beautiful town of half timbered houses on the way back to the van. As well as the full sized houses there were a multitude of handmade miniature wooden replicas with intricate detail on display in gardens and on walls.

    When we saw Der Schwanen (The Swan) pub it brought back memories of our local (The Old Swan; aka Ma Pardoes) so we popped in for a quick 'kleine pils'. Will had spotted an old looking pub called Eck Fritz (Fritz's corner) as we'd been heading up to the castle and as it was a hot day we availed ourselves of their services too! The pub was triangular to fit into the space at a Y-junction of the road. Its interior was dominated by dark wood and its shelves, that stretched all the way round the main room were stacked full of old curios from meat mincing machines to milk churns. A particularly memorable feature was the deer antler chandelier with lampshades of leather hide sown to small wooden frames and energy saving lightbulbs - this is a very environmentally aware country!

    Marksburg Castle

    May 12, 2015 in Germany

    We visited Marksburg Castle, and Glenda was given the key with which to unlock the door. The castle's foundations go back to the year 1100. The view of the Rhine from the top of the mountain is fantastic. Down in the basement there is an exhibit that shows some of the instruments of torture and imprisonment from the Middle Ages. However, our guide told us that there was never a prison at Marksburg. I was especially interested in the dining hall, and in the fact that there is a sit-down toilet. It hangs over the side of the wall, and the droppings fall to fertilize a garden.Read more

    Wieder in Deutschland

    April 11, 2017 in Germany

    Wir haben zuerst überlegt ob wir nochmal in Belgien übernachten, aber die Fahrt verlief ohne Stau und so hatte ich den Stellplatz an der Lahn am Kränchen als Ziel. Leider waren alle Plätze ab 13.04.2017 besetzt. Kein Wunder, Ostern steht vor der Tür. Wir fuhren dann weiter und hatten beim nächsten Stellplatz in Braubach Glück und ergattert den den letzten Platz direkt am Rhein. Direkt unter der Maksburg befindet dich der Stellplatz und man hat direkten Blick auf den Rhein. Stromanschluß ist normalerweise im Preis von 10 € enthalten, Aber die großem Wohnmobile Concorde brauchten dringend die 6A und können auch nicht teilen. Anscheinend haben die Angst das ihre Elektrik ausfällt wenn sie nicht an 220V hängen. Wir kochen dann morgen halt auf alte Art unseren Kaffee.Read more
