Bacharach on the Rhine river in Germany
View towards the town of Bacharach on the Rhine river, which has existed before the Romans and whose name can be lead back to the celtic settlement - Baccaracum. Thefirst documentary mention of the town was in the year 923.
In the background you can also see (from left to right) Peterskirche (church of St. Peter), Wernerkapelle (ruin of Werner chapel) and Liebesturm (tower of love).
Right on the Rhine hills is castle Stahleck - whose exact accruement time isn't known, but it's been proved that the castle was already inhabited in the year 1095. Big picture
"Gasthaus Stahl is a real gem of a place, in that
wonderful, scenic location up in the hills above the Rhine, in classic tiny Dellhofen
village, yet only minutes away from the walled cities of Oberwesel and Bacharach, right on
The old brick arch wine cellar of the Winery
Stahl, in which the wines are stored; the wine grapes are self-grown and
the wines are self-made. Wine tasting for groups up to 30 people in the brick arch wine
cellar. You'll become a romantic feeling with the lights off and set aglow in candlelight.
"The wine tasting at Weingut Stahl is truly
educational, with more varieties of flavorful German wines than most Americans ever
realize exist. I think that is worth the trip in itself."
