The Rhine at Lorch, about 12 km upstream from Rüdesheim (my last Rhine blog) is the start of the steep valleys and the impossible vineyards perched on their slopes. Castles start appearing at each twist of the river now.
Check out the cool steam train! But man picking those vines must be tricky…
The Rheinsteig trail is the walk to follow if as I previously mentioned you don’t want to use The Car, the train, a steam train, the bicycle or the boat. The Germans cater for all forms of transport and don’t miss a trick. The Rheinsteig trail continues for over three hundred kilometers along the Rhine but at Lorch it is quite special, winding up to tremendous views over the river and village. For more info on the Rheinsteig trail check out their English web site here.
Come on you lazy Humans, the trail is this way.Ya just follow the blue and white squiggly thing!
Me and Curley catching a breather, overlooking the Rhine and Lorch.
Lorch with a view
Princess and me taking it all in
We weren’t the only ones enjoying the view.
Now if we keep on the track we will end up in Kaub where I blogged about crossing the river last week. I’m assuming we are not doing that eh? Lets take The Car? Did I just say that?
Back in Lorch ready for the obligatory afternoon coffee and cake, well water and cake for me.
Next blog I think it will be Kaub and beyond…
