Castles and the Rhein

We drove through the Taunus mountains to Braubach on the Rhein and the site of the 13th century Marxburg Castle. We had visited this castle for a “formal” celebration with 4th Brigade’s partner brigade 10th Panzer Brigade back in 1980.  After taking a cruise on the Rhein we had dinner by candlelight in the castle. It was magical! The castle has since been further renovated and replastered since 1988 and is now in beautiful condition. The castle was never destroyed in battle, the only damage was caused by an earthquake and shelling from across the Rhein during WWII.
