Day 67a. Insel ReichenauOctober 10, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C
The island is surrounded by fresh water and is a picture of lush tall strong trees, green fields, market gardens, greenhouses and quaint little towns. It is a paradise for healthy living.
The island also has a rich history. We visited St Georg, a Catholic Parish Church built in the 9thC. It was built in the Pre-Romanesque style. The images in the nave of the Church on the sides and on the north and the south wall survived well preserved for centuries. In the year 896 the head of St Georg was buried in the crypt.Read more
