|This church is unusual in that it contains beautiful art for the worshiper to enjoy and contemplate. Most modern churches, at least Protestant ones, are spare in their design and decoration.|
|We visited this church in Koblenz before getting on our boat.|
|As you can see the Rhine is not only the heartland of Germany but also where they cultivate their famous wine. See how hilly it is. Some of the villages are built into such steep hills that their back doors are on the second floor of their houses.|
|I would have liked to have gotten off the boat and explored this castle. I did get to walk through others.|
|Does not this castle nestled in the hills make you think of fairy tales?|
This is the second day of our boat and bike trip. Next stop is Mainz to see the original printing press and St. Stephen's Church with Chagall's stained glass paintings.
