In Bacharach, I wanted to make sure I got to see the ruins of an old church that is right in town, but up 110 stairs (I counted), so we trekked up there to get a few pics. There is very little of the church left, but the sheer height of the walls is impressive. After this brief stop, we headed back to the room to relax a little before heading out to dinner.
The thing about little towns is that they roll up the sidewalks and close down very early. We could NOT find somewhere to have dinner (around 9pm). Not at all. We wandered the very few streets, then finally found ONE place that was open. Very small, and VERY smoky. I am pretty sure it is no longer legal to smoke in restaurants in Germany, but this place obviously did not care. Oh, my god it was smoky!! They were gracious and wonderful and served us the absolutely most delicious schnitzels we have ever had, along with some great white wines. Wonderful food!! We really lucked out here!! After dinner, it was back to the room to pack and go to bed, and off to Amsterdam in the morning.
