The German Leg - Part 3

I've just realised I haven't posted any more of the road trip holidays, so here is part 3 (or part 1 of Germany). Our first stop was at the 'top' of the Moselle, at Burgen. It was mostly motorways along the journey but as we crossed into Germany we drove over some spectacular parts of the Rhine and Moselle. The bridges were about 200m above the rivers below.

The view from our campsite at Burgen:


Approaching Cochem (a 13 mile ride from our campsite at Sennheim, off road cycle routes the whole way):




The following day a shorter (7 mile) ride to the medieval town of Beilstein. Very pretty and nice for relaxing.

In this picture you can see the height of the 1993 flood waters - this building is about 500 yards from the river and for reference Mr T is 5'6".






Will try to post the rest of Germany soon!

Amanda

Re: The German Leg - Part 3

Some nice shots.

I have been/passed through several of these places.
There are some beautiful places along the Mosel and Rhine we stayed in a great site at Saarburg years ago with a chairlift into town.

Reminds me of my own campervan journey out to Berlin and then down to Prague.

Re: The German Leg - Part 3

Hi all,

Thanks for the replies.

Wee man - I haven't found much on Google but it seems the flood was in December of 1993 and followed 11 days of heavy rain.

DerekC - thankfully the skies kept most of their rain away from us (until we got to France!)

Pandora - it was lovely and picturesque along the river. Yes clear is good!

alfbranch - Saarburg was our next stop and it was lovely (pictures to follow in the next thread).

chevvyf1, just to confuse matters I've given them different titles! Here are links to Parts 1 & 2:

http://e-group.uk.net/forum/showthread.php?t=27377

http://e-group.uk.net/forum/showthread.php?t=27423

OMuser - we only got the mobile home so this was our first trip abroad - I'm quite proud of driving the 1,380 miles with just a few wrong turns and the only time we were really caught out was the leg from Verdun to Calais which was calculated as 31/4 hours by Google and actually turned out to be 51/2 hours when we put it into the sat nav!

StephenL - it was lovely and I'd recommend it. We would go back as there are so many nice cycle routes.

Amanda
