May 17, 2015 - Sunday Train Hopping

We had a fun day riding the train. We finally found out the best way to travel in Germany. We had read about so many different packages online, we met with a lady right at the train station and she told us about the senior pass. We paid 65 Euros each, we can take any bus or train for the next month anywhere we want to go. We hopped on and off the train all day. Our first stop was to the tiny village of Spay. We wanted to check out the area where we rented our apartment for the next month. We loved the village, it is surrounded by mountains...

Sep 2, 2014 - Treated like Royalty

We are taking a ferry today from Rudesheim to another destination yet to be determined, to make the most of being on the river. We had to hustle, as there were so many tour groups in the city making their way to the boat, we knew if we didn't get near the front, we'd not have a chance to sit upstairs on the top deck. It was a beautiful sunny day, luckily for us as it rained only two days beforehand, and was due to rain again soon after we leave. The boat has a large deck on the roof, and Tess had strategically positioned herself near the...

Jun 17, 2013 - Oberwesel and St Goar

On the Sunday we had moved base to a campground in Hausbay in the Hunsruck Hills to the west of the Rhine River. The one issue of using the Germany stellplatz is they do not have any facilities so stopping at an occasional campground means we can get our laundry done! Our first day of exploring took us through the Hunsruck Hills down to the town of Oberwesel on the west bank of the Rhine River. The weather was hot in the mid to high 80’s°F so any walking had to be at a nice steady pace. Although the village is by the Rhine there is a rail...

Sep 13, 2012 - Treated like a King and Queen

The drive to Oberwesel and our "Burghotel" was fairly straight forward. We drove basically parallel to the Main (pronounced mine)River. The trip was fairly quick, and there wasn't too much traffic, until we got close to Frankfurt. There was a criss-cross of lanes, particularly near the airport, but we continued on in the far right lanes, as we were travelling westwards, past Frankfurt until we crossed over the Rhine. Alison slept pretty much the entire way and woke up basically when we were on the bridge heading inland a little towards...

Jun 4, 2009 - Oberwesel (Day 2)

June 4, 2009 Today we got up and went to breakfast in the hotel. Luckily, breakfast is included in the price of the room because meals here cost a ton! It was standard European breakfast fare. The big kids (Chris, Traci and Alicia) enjoyed it but it left a lot to be desired for the little kids who were craving some hot, delicious bacon. After breakfast, we gathered up our stuff for the day and went out. Our first destination of the day was Burg Eltz which is a privately owned castle in the German countryside that was never destroyed by...

Jun 3, 2009 - Oberwesel, Germany

Our first destination is located in Oberwesel, Germany. We will stay here 2 nights in a castle on a hill overlooking the Rhine river. The balcony photo is the Turret room where we stayed on our honeymoon. Obviously, it's not a photo of us...because Chris was almost too scared to walk out onto the balcony back then. Since the size of our traveling party won't allow us to fit into that room any more, the next photo is a representation of the rooms we will have this trip. Both rooms have a view of the Rhine...

Sep 20, 2007 - Castle auf Schönburg

With another lovely nights rest, warm showers, and complimentary breakfast, we had a short exploration of Heidelberg. It took about 1.5 hours to reach Oberwesel, back on the Rhein River. Having driven this route before we had seen the Castle auf Schönburg earlier on our trip, and were excited to come back! The highlight of our travels in Germany! We parked the car and hiked across the bridge, up the cobbled streets and through arched entrances to the hotel reception. This place was grand, and a four star hotel! The first either of us has...
