Crossing the Rhine at the town of Lorch, Germany.

Down the Rhine

On our way to Munich and Octoberfest we travelled down the Rhine counting the castles along the way.

We stopped at a little town of Sankt Goarshausen which is near the famous rock cliff of Lorelei to purchase some wine for our relatives who are hosting us in Munich.

The town was nestled up against a cliff face, we got off the highway and parked up against the river.  Once walked across the highway and entered the town we encountered streets that were little bigger then sidewalk between the buildings.

We found a Weinstube in the “wine cellar” of a building.

This little old lady was filling corking a couple bottles of wine for us to bring to our relatives. (She was very nice but the only sharp photo I have is the one of her not smiling)  I went to check out the tunes on the old skool jukebox and there I found the largest of all German stereotypes, David Hasselhoff! We didn’t have time to throw a couple of euro’s in the juke box We had to get to Munich!

Oh the unique experiences of a road trip down the Rhine in Germany.
