Stahleck Castle stands above colourful trees and a vineyard looking over the Rhine River near the village of Bacharach in Germany, October 2018.
Bacharach is a town in the Mainz-Bingen district in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany.
It belongs to the Verbandsgemeinde of Rhein-Nahe, whose seat is in Bingen am Rhein, although that town is not within its bounds. The original name Baccaracus points to Celtic beginnings.
