On the rivers - 5

These photos are from the last leg of the cruise, along the Main and Rhine rivers to our final port, Amsterdam

Miltenberg - the main street has many buildings dating back to the 16th century

An extraordinary pipe and cigar shop - I bought a new pipe here and very good it is, too

Charles and Valerie at Rudesheim
The Self-Playing Musical Instrument Museum, housed in a 16th century building was very interesting

A similar river cruise ship coming alongside the Amaverde

Castles along the Rhine Gorge

This castle, on an island, has its leading edge shaped like a ship's bow to protect it from ice flowing downriver.

Cologne Cathedral

River traffic at Cologne
While 'towel sculpture' is common on cruise ships, my stewardess used her great sense of humour
