    OMG, the castle in that first shot is soooo familiar to me from several trips down the Rhine (it looks like a ship.) I have done the Bingen (or Rudesheim) to St. Goar (and back) trip at least 3 times over the years. The Mauseturm always fascinated me (it's tiny), and the Pfalz/toll castle in your first picture.

    What's the name of the castle in the second one?

    thanks, the name of the second one is Ringberg Castle ... at the Tegernsee. The image only shows a side building.

    Yes. They are stereotypes, for sure.
    But none the less: really good photo of a very, very typical stretch of the River Rhine.
    Your boss owns a castle :shock: !
    Wow-y!

    And hey, dbyrd, I am curious to hear more about why you miss Germany, too.
    And feel invited to come back for the biggest TPF meet-up ever (one week) ... check out my signature-links for more.

    but if your going to be stereotyped you might as well be stereotyped with something good!!
    And there is nothing wrong with a good old Castle!

    I didn't say German castles were a bad stereotype thing ;) :)

    Sorry Danir, I think they are not looking for employees there at the moment ;)
