There is a quite impressive abbey in Beilstein, on the right of my picture.
My picture was taken from the castle-tower and might help you to decide for yourself, whether it is worth for you to climb up all these many partly worn-out steps or not.
The main picture was taken in April 2004, so the mountains still look a bit gray. The best time to travel the Rhine- and Mosel - valley is certainly in September and October when the leaves turn yellow and red !
My other pics show the interesting church-interior and the view from the terrace of the monastery, that is used as a cafe !
