Postcard from Bacharach

image

It is a small ancient town on the west bank of the Rhine. It existed before the Romans as a Celtic settlement. Its name Baccaracum came from the God of Bacchus as it supplied wine to the ancient territories. The medieval town is extremly well-preserved and can easily be called a hidden gem. Stahleck Castle, which was built in the 11th Century, was initially the seat of the Archbishop of Cologne’s reeves. Nowadays, it is a youth hostel overlooking the town. In the 19th century, Victor Hugo described Bacharach as one of the “world’s prettiest towns”.

I hope you enjoy this beautiful postcard from Bacharach.
