Yeti

The Rhine Gorge

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone :)

Today I drove down from south of Bonn, Germany (home) to beyond Koblenz - the Rhine Gorge. The scenery is pretty stunning around there, and most famous of all is the Lorelei rock - where a beautiful maiden is supposed to lure sailors to their deaths on the rocks with her singing!

No sings of the maiden today, but the weather was as good as it always has been here (32c) and the villages along the way are well worth a visit! The main industry is wine making, so it seemed only right to bring back a nice Riesling from the vintner's little shop in Boppard ;-)

Added to all of that is a string of mythical-looking castles along the way.

Here is a selection:

Vines growing along the slopes which lead to such a castle (the Rhine is below):

The Lorelei rock behind me!

Bacharach, a village further down the gorge. The red house is dated 1368!

Notice the vineyards at the back of the houses:

Looks like you, like myself, would benefit from a really nice camera - you've got some ace shots there! :shok:

Get ready to "wish you were here" to the photos I'm about to put up...
