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.
