Bacharach, Germany

Bacharach is a relatively unknown tourist destination in western Germany.  This small town along the Rhine River provides a great way to see the Rhine Valley and Stahleck Castle.

I spent two days here and like the rest of my trip, it rained almost non-stop.  Luckily, there were a few breaks in the weather and I took some good pictures.

Burg Stahleck is a 13th century fortified castle that has been destroyed and since rebuilt.  Now it serves as a youth hostel and this is where I slept for two nights.

Sadly, this is the end of my European tour.  I am starting my return journey tomorrow.  I take a train to Paris and then a flight back to Dublin.   In Dublin, I have a couple days before my return flight to Omaha.
