Cochem, Germany: The land of many castles

We visited two different castle this weekend- Reichsburg Castle and Burg Eltz.   Both were beautiful, but the walks up to the castles about killed me- especially when Li decided she would rather ride on my hip than walk.  Suddenly I knew how those poor mules at the Grand Canyon must feel.

If you are ever in the area, I suggest taking a tour of Reichsburg Castle- our tour guide was great and the funniest German I’ve met so far.  Most of the interior photos are from that castle.

Burg Eltz (the last five pictures of the gallery) was interesting, but they don’t allow interior photos.  They do have a cafe with some great bratwurst though.

We also spent the night in the wine valley town of Cochem- but my memory is a bit fuzzy from sampling their local wines. 🙂
