Stahleck Castle, Bacharach.

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.

Above the town looms Stahleck Castle, nowadays a youth hostel.  via Wikipedia
