    Schloss Stolzenfels

    August 13 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    The Rhine really is "filthy with castles" (thanks to Elaine for this quote) but this is our favourite and we have a great view of it from our apartment windows and balcony - we have loved watching the late afternoon light and sunset colours falling across this beautiful shimmering white castle.

    Braubach.... Marksburg Castle

    August 30 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    We enjoyed a Tour and amazing dinner and entertainment at the castle.
    Built in the 12th century,  Marksburg Castle is a great example of castle construction, castle purpose, and daily life.  I was surprised to learn only about 10 people lived inside the walls of the massive fortress. Typically, the castle was the living place of the royal family and a few knights for security. The rest of the servants lived outside only entering to do their jobs of cooking, blacksmithing, and waiting on the royal family.Read more

    Wild camp on hill above Oberwesel

    July 17, 2016 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    We've stayed in designated stopovers every night so far- something we've not been used to in the UK. The stopovers are great, but one of the things we love about campervanning is the ability to get away from it all and discover beautiful spots where only we will spend the night and see the dawn. Will was exploring the area on his Maps.Me app that works offline and has incredible detail. He spotted a layby at a viewpoint on the hillside and we headed up there hopefully. We weren't disappointed! Whilst the layby was on quite a slope, the view of the Rhein was stunning and the cornflowers, ox eye daiseys and poppies in the adjacent wheat field a lovely feature.

    Following Will's offline map and signposts we trekked a further 2km up the hill to another viewpoint that could only be reached on foot. It was great to immerse ourselves in nature and this was easy to do with the birdsong, chirping of the crickets and hum of bees. We even saw a Great Spotted Woodpecker on the way back down and a sunbathing lizard the following morning when we did Pilates in the picnic area overlooking the Rhein.

    Braubach

    July 25, 2016 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    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!

    Oberwesel

    July 18, 2016 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    After a walk along the old town wall and up a castle tower for 360° sights, we headed back with shopping to our riverside pitch. The sun was very hot today so we are stuck to the shade. Vicky has taken to using an umbrella as portable shade (with some very strange looks from the sunseekers!)

    The three of us spent the evening barefoot on the grass under the awning a few meters away from the Rhein. As the sun went down, a large moon rose over a hillside castle and a second castle that we could see through the van's sunroof provided a special treat as night fell and its illuminations were turned on!Read more

    Zorgboederij Trintelen.

    April 20 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    We zijn gearriveerd bij zorgboederij Trintelen. Kamperen bij de boer. Een mooie camping met een prachtig uitzicht. Nadat we gesetteld zijn gaan we fietsen. Dat is een hele opgave, we genieten van de mooie omgeving.

    Affenpark und Mangrovenwald

    September 25, 2018 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 6 °C

    Heute stand ein Ganztagesausflug auf dem Programm, um noch ein wenig mehr von der Gewürzinsel zu sehen. Erst brachte uns unser privater Fahrer zu einem Affenwald, wo wir von unserem Tour Guide ein wenig mehr über einheimische Flora und Fauna lernten. 🐒🌳🌿 Die Äffchen waren zwar süß und zutraulich. Doch ein wie ein Reiskorn winzig kleiner, wie Laub getarnter Frosch war noch viel beeindruckender. So auch eine riesige Ameisenstraße und natürlich der Mangrovenwald an sich waren faszinierend - ein Schauspiel der Natur, das Mama und Papa neu war und völlig begeisterte. Doch am meisten ging allen das Herz auf als Mama einem kleinen Jungen einen Block und Buntstifte überreichte und dieser ihr das wohl süßeste Lächeln mit den größten, braunen Kulleraugen überhaupt zurück schenkte und sofort anfing los zu kritzeln. 😍💙Read more

    Auf unserer Weiterreise durch Deutschland machen wir Halt in Koblenz. Dort besuchen wir Marina & Etienne und verbringen zwei super schöne Tage.
