Weinheim

Weinheim

Weinheim is located in a densely populated strip along the Rhine from Mannheim to Frankfurt. Two autobahns, industrial areas along them, the Mannheim – Heidelberg – Weinheim circular tram – having traveled back and forth to Frankfurt and Mannheim, I never imagined that such a cozy town could be hidden at the foot of the mountains.

Extensive green belt around the old town – Hermannshof Garten, turning into the city park and Exotenwald – makes the visit especially lovely. The picture is complemented by two castles: the picturesque ruins of the 11th century and a fresh one from the 20th century, in the style of historicism.

Moselle: Castle Eltz, Cochem and Trier attractions

Eltz

The Moselle is a very beautiful river. In truth, we liked her more than the Rhine, clogged with transport, muddy, with brown water.

To make the river navigable, it was dammed in the middle of the 20th century, but still there are very few barges here. On one (left) side of the river there is a railway and a road, and there is a road partly on the right. There are also castles on the banks of the Moselle, but the main attraction is the local wines. We were in Cochem and Trier, visited the Eltz castle.

Rheinfall

But still we had to wait five minutes to take a picture.
