Photographer's Note

The last days I showed you some pictures taken in the small low mountain range "Siebengebirge" on the right bank of Rhine river. Here you can see it - nearly in it's full extent. It's the view from castle "Godesburg" in Bonn-Bad Godesberg in an eastward direction. The picture was taken a few minutes before sunset.

Rhine river - you can't see it - flows directly in front of the mountains. At the top of the right mountain called Drachenfels you can see the ruin of castle Drachenfels. This mountain - it is said - is the most visited one of Germany. The view from there, 260 m above the large river, really is overwhelming.
A little bit left hand underneath its top you can see castle "Drachenburg".
At the top of the left mountain, Petersberg, you can see a big long white building. This is the first class "Hotel Petersberg", the guest house of the Federal Republik of Germany. Here nearly all Heads of State and Heads of Government of the countries with diplomatic relations to Germany have been accomodated.
In 2001 the Afghanistan-Conference took place here because the area of the mountain top can be bared hermetically.

Siebengebirge, of volcanic origin, is the oldest German nature protection area and hiking there is a dream because of it's many many objects of interest.
