Walking in Linz without a guide
Romantic, slow and picturesque LINZ is the masterpiece created for centuries. There is no city brighter in Germany. It attracts tourists to itself from all countries of Europe and even the world. The great Russian writer Turgenev, who couldn't be surprised with anything, inspired here so much, that he wrote the surprising story "Asia". Let’s go, be ready for a meeting with beauty, to see the city personally, but not on the Internet...
Departure is in the morning. Departure time depends on the city of departure and is reported, when ordering a trip.
The road leads us along the majestic river, which have seen everybody and everything, sung in prose and in verses of the famous writers and poets. You will definitely go by the Drachenfels Mountain, where angry Nibelungs lived, and where Siegfried from Xanthene won a fire breathing dragon…
THE CASTLED crag of Drachenfels
Frowns o’er the wide and winding Rhine,
Whose breast of waters broadly swells
Between the banks which bear the vine,
And hills all rich with blossomed trees,
And fields which promise corn and wine,
And scattered cities crowning these,
Whose far white walls along them shine,
Have strewed a scene, which I should see
With double joy wert thou with me.
’T WAS midnight as we scaled the mountain height,
The woodpile ’neath the walls the flames devoured,
And as my joyous comrades round it cowered,
They sang of Germany’s renown in fight.
Her health we drank from Rhine-wine beakers bright,
The castle-spirit on the summit towered,
Dark forms of arméd knights around us lowered,
And women’s misty shapes appeared in sight.
And from the ruins there arose low moans,
Owls hooted, rattling sounds were heard, and groans;
A furious north-wind blustered fitfully.
Such was the night, my friend, that I did pass
On the high Drachenfels,—but I, alas,
A wretched cold and cough took home with me!
Romantic, slow and picturesque LINZ attracts tourists to itself from all the countries of Europe and even the world. And we aspire there too...
We can’t count all the pearls on the Earth,
LINZ is not the last here! It was, will be and is
You can’t find more beautiful in Germany
Let’s go! A little more than an hour into the journey!
Having gone deeper into the Rhine Valley, and having driven by the uncountable well-groomed small villages and towns, rolling in vineyards, you achieve your desired aim... "Linz am Rhein" is the masterpiece created for centuries, they say, there is no brighter city in Germany. Before being "lit" in the center, you will pass the Am Gestade Street 7, where Ludwig van Beethoven stopped, and nearby the commemorative plaque hangs on the other famous house number 10, here Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev stopped. Good fellows, they know how to attract us!
We will enter the "megalopolis" through the Middle Ages gate, built in 1391 — a symbol of happy life inside the city walls. On the gate you can see the marks about height of the risen Rhine's water in different centuries and years. Rhine is the artful river, from time to time it was difficult without boat in the city. The bronze boy "Linz Сhatterbox" silently will greet you and you will enter the Burg Linz Castle (1365), where it is possible to observe production of glass on technologies of 2000-year in the Roman glass-blowing (perhaps, you will buy something). It’s affordable! (at will).
Visiting the museum of musical instruments or the torture chamber, showing medieval methods of interrogation with addictions. For certain, the type of the restaurant, located here, will increase your appetite. It was visited by Helmut Kohl, Dietrich Genscher, Gorbachev spouses, Yeltsin. You will enjoy dishes according to medieval recipes. Having left the castle, walk along the narrow, a paved cobble-stone twisting small streets, admiring half-timbered architecture of surprising beauty, take photo at the background of the Town Hall, constructed in 1543, and also at the fountain Parliament with the moving hands and legs of his important people. The commemorative plaque on the Town hall will tell you about the tragedies during thirty years war in 1618 – 1648. Going to Rhine, we will get acquainted with the saleswoman Agnes, offering oil and cheese, however, all the goods are from bronze. You will walk along the Rhine, and before departure home, saying goodbye to the city, throw a coin into a well to return to the city sometime...
