Hazy Day at the Rhine in Eltville




This little castle is built on an island in the river.The island is called Mariannenaue (thank you Pedi!). Unfortunately I don't know the name of the house (if it has a special name).
Es war ein diesiger Tag in Elville am Rhein. Dieses kleine Schloss liegt gegenueber von Eltville auf der "Mariannenaue". Leider weiss ich nicht ob das Haus einen Namen hat.

encore un beau château (il est vrai que c'est une belle région pour les châteaux), j'aime bien la première, on a l'impression de découvrir un passage secret qui mène au château.
still a beautiful castle (it is true that this is a beautiful area for castles), I like the first, it feels to discover a secret passage leading to the castle.

Dieser Gutshof hat glaube ich keinen Namen, die Aue heißt aber Mariannenaue. Siehe auch :

Well, that is interesting....when I see places like this, I often wonder about the lady of the castle :) I can only imagine what it must have been like to select window treatments and furniture for each room...sigh....

Jedes Mal, wenn ich in Eltville bin, schaue ich hinüber auf die Au und bewundere das Haus. Da will ich unbedingt irgendwann mal hin.
Ich wüsste aber auch nicht, dass das Haus (oder Schloß) einen Namen hat?!
Ich versuche, mich mal schlau zu machen....
Liebe Grüße,

I like pictures taken through windows and doorways. I've just started a series of miniatures of doorways and their views.

Such a magical place! I hope you were inspired for your new restaurant, too.

It looks like a beautiful house in the middle of the river. I wonder, since the years it was built if it has ever been flooded.

And how did it fare during World War II? I would think it would have been shot up pretty bad during those years.

It is sure beautiful in your pictures. I am so glad you got to go home for a vacation.

Have a nice weekend.
