Here are the photos that go with the last post from the Moselle river in Luxembourg to Germany and the Saar river.
My next post will be out soon.
Porta Nigra. Roman gate, Trier, Germany
Trier has many beautiful churches including The Cathedral of St Peter.
House of the three Magi, built c.1230 when Trier’s medieval city wall was not yet finished each house had to defend itself so the entrance was the ‘window’ on the right accessible only by ladder or wooden staircase that could be pulled up.
Cloister of the cathedral.
Loitering in the cloister.
The Electoral Palace is considered one of the most beautiful of the Rococo palaces in the world.
Roman Ampitheatre, now used for concerts.
Hauptmarkt. Trier’s market square.
When in Germany, eat sausage. Thems the rules.
Kiwis catching up at the bar in Konz marina.
Old Moselle crane
We took the train to Luxembourg city. This is the Corniche that runs along the Alzette valley on the ramparts. Built by the Spaniards and the French in the 17th century.

Marina in Saarburg, Germany. Steep vineyards all around.
Crazily steep vineyards all through this part of the Saar river.
Beautiful Saarburg, Germany
Restaurants and bars line the pretty waterway in Saarburg, Germany.
We stopped for a beer!
Seen from the river this is the ruins of Saarburg Castle, founded as early as 964 by Count Siegfried of Luxembourg. It is one of the oldest mountain castles in Weatern Germany.
Saarburg from the river as we left our mooring.
This was our view as we motored into this lock on the Saar. At 14.5m deep the Serrig lock is the deepest lock we have been in so far but it filled slowly and was drama free.
A long way up!
