Sunday Stroll and Sightseeing

Today we went for a walk again to Schloss Oberstein and visited Felsenkirche. It is a church built into a natural niche in the rocks and it rises high above the houses of Oberstein. It was constructed by Wyrich IV of Daun-Oberstein in the years 1482-1484. Behind the church a wall of rocks rises steeply upwards; and under it, the houses of Oberstein nestle into the slope. On account of its prominent location, the church has become a symbol of the city.

We could not go inside the church as it is closed during this time.
