Today we visited the charming village of Koblenz.
Passengers got off the ship, boarded a bus, and were driven to a nearby castle called Marksburg Castle.
Marksburg was one of the very few castles along the Rhine that survived the centuries intact despite multiple wars and conflicts.
Here are a few photos from the visit:
After leaving the Marksburg castle, we continued our sail up river on the Rhine, passing a couple of dozen castles along the way. Here is a sample. (After a few castles, they all begin to look alike.)
A brief word about the weather so far. It’s been cloudy, cold, and punctuated by brief showers. Very little sun. Hopefully, we will get clearer weather when we get farther south.
