Linz am Rhein - Germany

Limz am Rhein is a historic Rhineland town surrounded by thickly wooded countryside, located to the south-east of Bonn on the eastern bank of the Rhine, near Remagen. Dating from 874, much of the old town is pedestrianised and has many attractive half -timbered buildings. The main square - the Marktplatz, also known as Castenholzplatz - houses the 16th century Town Hall, the Mariensaule pillar and the Ratsherrenbrunnen fountain, all framed by a circle of old houses. Nearer to the river on Burgplatz ia another fountain, the Linzer Strunzer. You may also visit Linz Castle, one of the Middle Rhine's top attractions
