We went on a walking tour of the 2000 year old town of Koblenz, Germany.  It is situated in the picturesque landscape at the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle Rivers.  Here we see the St. Castor Cathedral.

This must be a statue of St. Castor.

All these cathedrals have beautiful organs and stained glass.

I believe this would be the baptismal font.

It is one of the most important museums for modern and contemporary art in Europe.  Unfortunately, we did not have enough time to go in.

But that was O.K.  I’m not a real fan of modern art.
