European Christmas Markets

The Show: Castles on the Rhine

This part of our visit is in our extended version of the show, seen as a pledge show on PBS and also is part of the show DVD.

Here we travel on to the Rhine River, and have a look at the Unesco Heritage designated portion of the Rhine River containing castles and castle ruins along its cliffs. Marksburg Castle, Sterrenberg Castle, Liebenstein Castle, Burg Maus, Rheinfels Castle, Gutenfels Castle, and the Pflaz are romantic and enchanting relics of times gone by, and made the more magical by winter. Attractive wine towns lie at their bases. There is magic in Christmas, and in the images of these wonderful historic sites.
