A very sunny morning down at the Rhine

Roll up ladies and gentlemen… for one day only a preview of Summer in Germany! 22°C and brilliant sunshine! Tomorrow will be back to chilly and rainy, so enjoy it now!

On a lovely day like today, the best place to be is down by the river. In Meerbusch we’re lucky – we are right next to the Rhine. Later on the banks will be packed with people having picnics and barbecues… but first thing in the morning it’s deserted, apart from the odd dog walker.

Here are some views from the fashionable side of the Rhine…

Still a little hazy first thing as the sun comes up

  1. What a gorgeous looking spot! Enjoy your brief day of Summer before the rain and cold decide to come back.

  2. It was the same here in Holland. Amazing weather and now back to rubbish rain. Can’t wait until the sun becomes more than just temporary.

  3. Beautiful spot along the Rhine but then it’s probably hard to find a bad one! I agree with you, when the sun is out it is best spent outside along a river.
