~ Rheinbach, 29.01.2023 ~

I visited Rheinbach on an errand. The weather was poor, but it was a good opportunity.

There is a lot of residential sprawl around the town, but it has a small historical core.

The church was being cleaned as the parish had decided to replace the pews with chairs, to be arranged in a half-circle.

The old town wall is reduced to a foundation, but one of the gatehouses still stands.

The main street is the most appealing and rather lively; it would look nice under a clearer sky.

Sadly, the town was greatly damaged and much of it destroyed during the 2nd World War, so there is little else of beauty left to be discovered here.
