During a Sunday afternoon excursion we passed the medieval town of Beilstein on the shores of the Mosel River, a sought after destination throughout the summer and wine fest season. I heard stories of “no possibility of parking” and “people everywhere” during the warmer seasons.
In late November these story don’t ring true. We arrived just around sunset and the town was shrouded in mystery. Perched high above the town Burg Metternich was closed but I climbed the stairs to the gate anyways just to get my own picture of the historic site.
The town’s popularity is due to many events and it’s founding in 1309. Such history! I enjoyed our twilight walk without the crowds of summer. I hope you enjoy my images.
