  1. Wow, that Reichsburg is something else! That castle is so pretty, I wonder that I haven’t seen it a million times on Instagram. Thanks for all the nice tips for places to visit in Germany 😀

    1. My pleasure! 🙂 My trip to Rheinland-Pfalz was just a coincidence but it is far more interesting than I expected.

  2. Those villages look fantastic, will definitely have to check out this area 😉 Thanks for the reportage and the tips!

  3. Bacharach looks really beautiful! From your photos it looks like a charming, quiet town where walking around would be pure bliss. As for Cochem, the first time I heard about it was a few months ago from another blogger’s post. Twice mentioned in only a few months’ span, I guess it’s a sign that it’s worth visiting. Would love to explore this part of Germany one day. Thanks for the visual tour, Len!

    1. You welcome! 🙂 In this region, you can also find the Eltz Castle, very popular on Instagram. According to legend, this castle has never been fallen and it is still privately owned by a noble family. Unfortunately, I did not have the chance to visit it this time 🙁

  4. Beautiful photos to compliment your wisdom of this area . Looks like something we need to add next time we go. Thank you.

  5. What beautiful pictures. I wish I had your skill with a camera. My husband and I are in Portugal, and I can see that Germany may be next year’s destination. Your pictures stir my soul! Thank you. Regina

    1. Thanks for your kind words, Regina! If you have any question regarding travel in Germany, feel free to ask 🙂 I’m not an expert, but I will try my best.

  6. Shots are beautiful…what is the closest German town to this area? My German geography is not up to par.

    1. I think Frankfurt is the closest big city to this area 🙂 From there you can easily take the train to Bacharach and then to Moselle Valley.

  7. Beautiful photos, Len! These little towns remind me a lot to the German speaking part of Switzerland and Alsace! This architectural style is so so pretty!

      1. One can almost expect to see Hansel and Grettel coming out from one of those pretty houses! 🙂 They look like out of a fairy tale for me, hehehe

  8. Love this place that I’ve visited many times and is home to most of my relatives. Your photos are absolutely gorgeous. Bacharach is my favourite village among so many pretty ones. Thanks for taking me there!

    1. My pleasure, Caroline! I agree with you that Bacharach is the most photogenic town in the region. Every street, every corner is pretty.

  9. kiểu kiến trúc châu Âu luôn làm mình mê mẩn đến phát hờn luôn :((. Mà ảnh bạn chụp còn có hồn hơn nữa ý.

  10. Gorgeous panorama of Rhineland Palatinate. I love this region so much. It´s the first trip I´ve made when I came here in Germany and it´s still close to my heart. I cannot drink other white wine except Riesling. When we visited a vineyard in Moselle, we bought boxes of wine from the Winery of our hotel, it was really a great time.
    And chasing castles along the Rhine river is something that everyone who visits Germany must do….

    1. Indeed. I found the beauty of this region is so underestimated. Magnificent landscape and castles. Yet only a fragment of foreign tourists know about this place.

      Regarding wine, I think we have the same taste 🙂 Among German white wines, Riesling is my most favourite. Refreshing taste, and profound acidity. Gewürztraminer is also tasty.

      1. Normally when we Asians travel ,we would like to discover as many countries as possible within a week or two or so, since it´s not cheap to do a European tour. But then, there are much more than the touristy areas, actually there are sooo much more to explore here in Germany that I hope to see…I guess I need more vacation days from work! :-))) But then, life happens when you are busy making plans.
