Photographer's Note

The Burg Pfalz (XIV century), commonly known as "Die Pfalz", is one of the most famous castles of the Rhine Valley and - probably - also one of the most famous German castles ever. It owes its fame to a particular location on a small island (called Falkenau) in the middle of the River Rhine is one of the castles of the Rhine Valley who have suffered the least amount of destruction. It dates back to 300, but the present structure is the result of restructuring in Baroque style in the '600 and '700. It is located near the town of Kaub, in Hesse, Rhineland-Palatinate (Rheinland-Pfalz)
On the right, you see the fortress on the hill Katz
