Bacharach am Rhein

Bacharach is a tourist destination. Named a UNESCO World Heritage site of the Upper Middle Rhine Valley in the district of Mainz-Bingen in Rhineland-Palatinate. The original name Baccaracus indicates a Celtic origin. Above the village rises the castle Stahleck (now a youth hostel).

We stopped for two hours on our Rhine day cruise, ate some lunch at the ‘Altes Haus’ from 1389. Afterwards we strolled the romantic cobblestone streets with the half timbered homes.

I would have missed lots of sites of interest, if I did not have a German guide book. Here are some recommendations:

Burg Stahleck was a highlight of our trip. If you good on foot you can take the steps up there. It is very old, build about 1100 to 1200 a. D
