    Hildegard and Castles: busy on the Rhine

    June 16, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    We started the day with some time in the Museum in Bingen learning all about Hildegard of Bingen. She seems like quite a character, a prolific writer and significant political player. Next to the museum was a small herb garden with all the medicinal plants used in her time, and described in her books.

    Then we set off along the river again, it's this section of the river that is famous for the castles.

    There is a rail line down each side of the river with long freight trains going in both direction all day, as well, there are freight barges going up and down on the river, against the backdrop of the castles on the ridge tops. Amazing!

    There are no bridges across the river between Mainz and Koblenz, about 200k by bike, so as well as the tourists boats and barges going up and down there are also cross river ferries. It's busy out there.

    The map of the route has interesting advertising, the anti inflammatory drug Voltaren is advertised on the cover. A helpful message for tired cyclists.

    "Rest day" tomorrow, time to go and visit the local castle.

    This is the largest castle on the Rhine, just a short climb from our hotel. Spectacular views of the river and a beautiful walk down. I headed across the river this afternoon on the local ferry to get to the supermarket, there isn't one on the side.Read more

    Rheinburgen Weg

    October 21, 2016 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 7 °C

    Da der Camino meist mit dem Rheinburgen Weg zusammen verläuft, hier mal eine Burg... Seit Koblenz sehe ich täglich reichlich Burgen. Nur der Ritter auf dem weißen Pferd kam noch nicht den Weg längs geritten...Read more

    Sankt Goar, Germany

    May 28, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    It was unfortunate not to spend a bit more time in Munich, but the Rhine Valley did not disappoint! The Rhine Valley is a well known region set along the Rhine River comprising numerous medieval castles, wineries and villages. When we arrived in Sankt Goar we visited the cuckoo clock shop which includes the largest free hanging cuckoo clock in the world! Next we took a cruise along the picturesque River Rhine which is lined with castles and hillside vineyards.Read more

    Rheinfels Castle

    June 6, 2018 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    After our city walk, we took a quick bus ride to the next town over, St. Goar, to see the castle. First we had a delicious traditional German meal, Schnitzel, spatzael, sourkraut and potatoes. Another sunny day, meant a hot walk to the castle from the parking lot below. Then back down to the magnificent Rhine for a relaxing canal boat ride back to Bacharach. We decided to find some baked goodies and took them back to our room to relax and pack, since we'll be leaving early in the morning to head to Rothenburg.Read more
