Upper Middle Rhine Valley July 2013

The Upper Middle Rhine Valley  narrows and there are hills on both sides.  The water is swifter here.  There are a string of Ancient Roman settlements, castles, and vineyards.  It seems around every bend of the river is a castle once owned by a Robber Baron who exacted a toll from traffic moving along the river.

There are a lot of barges that go up and down the Rhine.  The families live on the barges.  You can see the family car on the back deck.

The Glasmanns have often told me that England has nothing on Germany where castles are concerned. Those are stunning pictures!
