Rhine River

Cruising in the Rhine River Valley

The famous Rhine River Valley of Germany is perhaps, one of the most beautiful places we've seen to date. It is no wonder people hundreds of years earlier sought out and conquered this land for themselves. As you cruise through the valley, you're treated to a wonderful view of over 30 castles perched on the cliffs. We stayed in the village of Oberwesel Whose castle is but a ruin.
However, just a few miles north is Castle Mark Castle. This particular castle is unique because it is so well preserved. Due to it location and political flexibility it Remained unattacked during the years. It was pretty cool to see all the furnishings and tapestries.
