First up, was Burg Rheinstein, one of the oldest Rhine castles.
The view from Burg Rheinstein.
Next up, Bacharach. I’m still not sure how to pronounce this, that is, I should use a hard ch or a soft ch. Should it be Ba-sha-rash? Or perhaps Ba-ka-rak? Or maybe a combination of the two, Ba-sha-rak or Ba-ka-rash?
Either way, it was Medieval!
And I had a great big giant cherry beer! So the medieval town looked even more Medieval after that.
We then climbed the hilly slopes behind Bacharach to Burg Stahleck. I’m not a viticulturist (is that a word?) but planting grape vines on an 80˚ slope seems like a whole lot of hard work to me!
Bacharach’s residents live in 2 time zones? It’s about 11h10 on the right side, and 3h on the left side.
I love rooftops.
Last stop, Burg Sooneck, where we had to don extra large floppy bedroom slippers over our shoes to visit the inside of the castle. They should have paid us the admission fee to clean their floors for them!
