Photographer's Note

The density of castles along upper middle Rhine valley is unique and insurpassed all over the world. This was a major item in the valley's admission as UNESCO cultural world heritage: two dozen castles on only 67 kms!

Castles are prone to military conflicts, siege or destruction. Only one castle remained untouched and undestroyed throughout the centuries:
Marksburg, not far from Coblence.
