    […] At one point in history, Germany was not a country but a patchwork of little princedoms fighting with each other. This meant a lot of castles being built for protection and control. The most famous is the Neuschwannstein on the Austrian border near Munich. This is the fairytale looking castle on the top of a hill that you see on a lot of postcards. The other great place to see many castles is the Rhein river north of Frankfurt from Bingen to Koblenz. […]

    Andrew, I just saw this post you did. I did a river cruise on the Rhine and stayed in Bacharach. It’s funny that I see this now because I just wrote about this on Europe A La Carte Sunday night! http://su.pr/1RrXEO

    There is definitely a romantic, relaxing aspect to the Rhine river. It’s one of those locations I could spend some time relaxing and exploring. Thanks for these photos and the trip down memory lane!

      You’re welcome. I’ve done the cruises several times, but never stayed on the river. Sounds nice. I’ve read of castle hotels that sound cool.

    I took the train along the Rhine a little over six years ago and really enjoyed the scenery. This phototour brings back good memories!

      Glad I could wake memories for you. Yeah, the train ride is cool, but goes too fast to get good pictures of the castles.

    This is one of my favourtie places in Europe! My family has a vineyard in Reil, a village on the Mosel about 30 minutes south of Koblenz. We’ll be visiting again very soon!

      Ooo very awesome. I have seen Trier but never the Moselle. There is another castle there called Burg Eltz that I would love to see at some point.
