Rhine Cruise: Rhine Gorge and Koblenz

We cruised for hours past picturesque towns, castles and vineyards until we reached Koblenz at the confluence of the Mosel and Rhine Rivers. 

Our guide pointed out some quirky features of the town including a clock tower where a head sticks his tongue out at you every hour and where horses licked off portions of religious murals INSIDE a church.

 We ended our visit by travelling by cable car across the Rhine up to a great fortress. We only had time to walk to a lookout platform, which afforded great views despite the rain.
