    1. The worst thing to ever be developed state-side is ‘urban renewal.’ Denver has lost a number of unique buildings in the name of ‘progress.’ 😬

  1. Haven’t been to that town but have been to Germany and LOVE it. I lived in Weisbaden as a little girl (my Air Force Dad was stationed there for two years). Have done a cruise on the Rhine with stops along the way – such a gorgeous and friendly country! That photo is FAB….

    Hugs, Pam

    1. It is a very scenic country. Actually Bacharach is not all that far from Wiesbaden in the Rhineland countryside and is such a charming little hamlet that looks like it was taken from a fairytale.

    1. It truly is a lovely place to visit and one of my favorite spots along the Rhineland countryside.

  2. Now that post wakes up memories: When Mary and I stayed in Bacharach, das “Alte Haus” was directly adjacent from our hotel “Altkoelnischer Hof” – within spitting distance from the balcony of our room.

    1. I LOVED Bacharach and was so smitten with all the historical places including the various flood lines over the years.

    1. It’s one of my favorite villages and have visited it a couple of different times.

  3. Edelweiss…oops wrong city! LOL!

    Love seeing these ancient places/structures so well preserved. They are precious remnants of our past and imagine the history they hold within them. I have been to Europe a few times, mostly the Netherlands, and while the insides of historical buildings may be modernized the outsides may only be rehabbed to maintain the way it was…way back when.

    1. The date completely blew my mind. Bacharach is one of the loveliest villages in the Rhineland region.

    1. When you’ve attended the real deal in Munich, celebrations in the states is not even close. Prost! 🍻

  4. This, to me, screams Germany (or even Switzerland, now that I think of it. It reminds me of Zug….)
    Either way, I don’t blame you for wishing your were there!

    1. I absolutely was fascinated with those timber framed houses. They were just incredible, even more so for how long they’ve been around!

    1. More likely meat and cheeses, which would probably be more tasty for both you guys. πŸ™‚

    1. There are a lot of those timber framed houses throughout Europe so your thought is very understandable.

  5. I wish I was there with you. Beautiful.

    Have a fabulous day and rest of the week. Scritches to the pups, a smooch to Norman and a big hug to you. β™₯

    1. It really does have the Grimm’s look to it, doesn’t it? I was so captivated by the timber construction. Amazing that something built in 1368 is still around. In the US it’d been razed ages ago. πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

      1. There were a number of timber framed houses existing in our local town when we lived in France, tucked away in the old town which was neglected by the council while they boosted the commercial estates on the outskirts….perhaps that was why they survived!

Feel free to bark your thoughts...but no growling please.
