I don't know exactly next to which town it was, but I do know it's on the route (driving next to the Moselle constantly) from Alf towards Cochem This ruin stands exactly next to a sharp bend in the river, making it look a bit like it's standing on the far end of a peninsula.
Lovely picture. Germany is absolutely filled with places that spark the mind. I'm going the coming weekend.
The title reminded me of "Tale of Tales", a game company (duo) I met. They are uncompromising in their integrity, caring little for popularity, just as long they can make a living. In one of their games you are a deer who can only walk around in the forest with limited ways to communicate with other entities. Amazing concept, but perhaps not that much fun to play.
