We took the pictures below while in Germany.  We left Colmar, France and drove towards the Black Forrest in Germany and eventually to the Autobahn where we drove over 100 mph a few times without fear of getting a speeding ticket. We stopped at the German Clock Museum in Furtwagen along the way so we could see a very nice collection of old and modern clocks.  The museum is located in a small town where you might not expect to see a clock museum, but we are very glad we stopped to see the clocks. 

After the clock museum we headed on to the Autobahn towards the town of Bacharach where we planned to make our home base for touring the Rhine River and local sights.  Bacharach is a beautiful old town as are many of the other towns found along side the Rhine River. 

The pictures below are from our trip to Bacharach focusing on the clock museum, a few pictures from the Rhine River ferry boat, St. Goar along the Rhine River, and a couple pictures of Burg Eltz on the Mosel River. We have hundreds more pictures, but this is enough to give you an idea of what we saw.
