Castles Along the Rhine

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Although a slightly chilly afternoon, most of the 180 guests on the Bragi were huddled on the open deck at the bow of the boat to view the 40 or so castles along the Rhine River.

We were given a list of the largest ones along the way and their corresponding Kilometre posts which we could follow along on an excellent map produced by Viking (numbers that are posted along the riverbank).

We learned from our cruise director, who provided commentary from time to time, that many of the castles were destroyed during various wars and had since been reconstructed.
