This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you.

public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing tliis resource, we liave taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying.

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner

PREFACE. 

Ilie chief olyeet of the H&ndbook for the Rbine ii to 
supply the traveller with Buoh information as will render 
him as nearly as poBeible independent of hotel-keepers, 
commissionDures, and ^ides, and thsB enable him the 
more tboronghly to enjoy and apprenate tbb objects «f 
interest he meete with on hi« tonr. 

The Handbook is baaed almost entirely npon tfae per- 
.s^HiSl . i^fierTatiaB o^ t^oi.^ditor, and tlie eoantry de- 
fieti)^^^,^iu.ji^im repeatedlf (jtfplored by bim w^ a 
^ew to pSIvire the Uteet pocwblv iofwnation ; but, as 
.changes are cpnstantly taking plaoB, ha will highly appre- 
ciate any oommuiucalioBs with which trarellers may 
kindly favour him, if the, result of their own esperienee. 
Tliow already reoeived htm nnmeroas eorresponddnta, 
which he gratefully acknowledge? , have in many cases 
proved most serviceable. 

The present edition, which corresponds with the 29th 
in German and the 17th in French, has been thoronghly 
revised and bronght np to date. For tiie article oi 
Rhenish Art the Editor is indebted to the late I^■ofmor 
Anton Springer of Leipslc. 

. The Maps and ^ass, on which special care has 
been bestowed , will often render material service to the 
traveller, and enable him at a glance to ascertain his 
bearings and select the best routes. 

Time Tabulb. Information regarding trains, steam- 
boats, aad diligences is most tmstwortby when obtEuned 
from local sources. The beat Gennan publications of 
tiie kind are 'ffendacheFa Telegraph' {2 jt] , published 
at Frankfort on the Main, and issued monthly during 
Oie snmmer season, and the ' Racht-Kurabue^ [1 Jt) , 
published at Berlin, issued eight times a year. 

Heights are given in English feet (1 Engl. ft. ^^=1 
0,3048 mitre], Dibtakces in English miles [except in the 
case of monntiun-exciiraisjta,.^!^!^^ time the; occupy 



>1 PBBFAOE. 

is given as more convenient), and the Populatioiis !n 
accordance with the most recent census. 

Hotels. The Editor has endeavoured t» enumerate, 
not only the firat-elass hotels , but others also of more 
modest pretensions, which may be safely selected by the 
'voyageur en garden' , with little sacrifice of comfort 
and great saving of expenditure. Although changes fre- 
quently take place, and prices generally have an upward 
t«ndency, the average charges stated in the Handbook 
will enisle the traveller to form a fair estimate of his prob- 
able expenditnte. It is advisable to ascertain the charge 
for rooms in advance. The asterisks indicate those hotels 
which the Editor has reason to believe to be provided 
with the comforts and conveniences expected in an np- 
to-date establishment, and also to be well managed and 
with a reasonable scale of charges. Houses of a more 
modest character, when good'of their class, are described 
as 'fair' or 'very fair'. At the same time he does not 
doubt that comfortable quarters may often be obtained at 
inns which be has not recommended or even mentioned. 

The Editor regrets Uiat he is unable to answer all 
commnnications. To hotel-proprietors, tradesmen, and 
others he begs to intimate that a character for fair deal- 
ing and courtesy towards travellers forms the sole pass- 
port to his commendation , and that advertisements of 
every kind are strictly exclnded from his Handbooks,

INTRODUCTION. 

I. Langoagtt. 

A Blight toqaUDtuice yilth Genaan la indiipanuble for thoss 
who desire to explore the mora lemote parti of the Rheniah 
Provincea. Tourlals who do not doTiate from the beaten track will 
generally Bad English or Fisoch apoken at the principal hotels and 
the uaaal reaorta of stisngeni; bat if they ate entirely ignoiant of 
the langaage they mnst be piepsied occaaionally to aabmit. to the 
extortlona practised by porters, cab-dTivera, and othera of a Ilka 
elau, which even the data famlahed by the Handbook wiU not 
always enable them to avoid. 

n. Mon»y. Travelling Expense!. 

HoNBT. The Qermsn mark (.if), which is nearly eqalvUwit to 
the Engllah ahilling, is divided into lOO pfennigs. Banknotes of 5, 
30, and 50 JK aie iiaaed by the German Imperial Bank ('DeuUeke 
BtiiAibank'J, and others of 100, 5O0, and 1000 Jl by the Imperial 
Bank and by twelve other banks which poieess the privilege. The 
ouiieQt gold coins are pieces of 10 and of 20 marks, the Intrtnsie 
value of which ia somewhat lower than that of the Engllah half- 
soTcieign and (oierelgn (If. being worth aboat 20 .# 43 pf.). The 
paper currency la of the same value as the preeions metals. The 
silver ootna are pieces of 6, 3 (the old dollar), 2,1, and '/j mark 
(50 pf.). In nickel there are coina of 10 and 6 pfennigs, and in 
copper there are pieces of 1 and 1 pfennig. 

English sovereigns and banknotes may be eichanged at all the 
principal towns in Germany, and napoleons are also favourably 
received (20 fr. = ISi. =: 16 Jl, and often a UtUe more). Those 
who travel with Urge aami should cany them In the form of letters 
of credit or In circular notea of bl. or lOl., rather than in banknotes 
or gold, as the value of the former, if lost or stolen, la recoverable. 

TKavBLLiNO ExFBiTHHB. The oipenao of a lour in the Bhenish 
Provinces depends of coarse on a great variety of circumstances. Of 
late years many complaints have justly been made of the exorbitant 
charges at acme of the Bheniih hotels j but it may be stated generally 
that travelling in Germany, and even on the Bhlne, la less ex- 
pensive , and In some leapecta more comfortable , than In most 
other ooantrlea in Europe. The pedestrian of moderate require- 
ments, who has attained tolerable proficiency in the language and 
avoids the beaten traok as much as possible, will have no dlHculty 
in llmltinghisexpendlture to8-10.if peiday; bat those who prefer 
drlvli^ to walking, frequent the most expensive hotels, and require

spring-seats, are eometioies nearly as good as the first In England. 
The firsC-claaa carriages, lined with velvet, and comparatively little 
used, are recommended to tte lover of fresh air, as he will be mora 
likely to secure a seat next the window. The tbird-class travelling 
community are generally quiet and respectable, and the carriages tol- 
etably clean. On a few railways there Is e«en a fourth class, without 
Beats. Bmoking is permitted In all the carriages, except those 'Fiir 
Nioht-Raucbei' and the coupes for ladies. The average fares for the 
different classes are about i^^d., i'/^d., and */gd. per Engl. M. 
respectively. The extra-charge for > ieat In the D Corridor Trains

mnjt be paid for. In all cases the heavier luggage must be booked,

on mainly by the nuited Colofne and Dutaetdorf CompanUt, (he 
■teamen of the former having black, of the Utter black-aud-oMte 
fniwel*. The admirable laloon-ateamen of these Gompaniei ac- 
complish the Journey from Hayenne to Cologne in T^/4 bn., and 
that from Cologne to Hayenee in 12l/i bTs., touching, in deacend- 
ing, at Blebrich, Coblenz, and Bonn only; in ascending, at Blngeli 
also. The Nethtrlandt 8leam-8hip Co. (fnnnels black below anil 
white above), which formerly carried on a fteight-sorviee almost 
eiclDiively, now also rone two saloon-staamers for pasaesgen (pien 
ditfercDt from those of the other eompaniea). These have the ad- 
TButaga for travellers to or from Botteidam that no change of boat 
la needed. The ordinary steamers slop at nnmeroni small places 
where passengen are landed In boats. The oharge for landing or 
embarking, including 100 lbs, of luggage, ia 10 pf. 

The fares are very moderate, those for voyages apstreaio being 
one-alith less than for those In the leierse direction. The express 
fares are somewhat higher than the ordinary. The expresa-steamen 
carry saloon-passengers only. Each passenger is allowed lOOlbs. of 
luggage free. Additional advantages are offered by the issue of re- 
turn-tickets, one class of which is valid for a week, another within 
the current year. Railway Clionlar Tickets (see above), the so- 
called 'Elective Railway Tickets' (Wahlfnit ElitnbiAi^taTten), and 
the tickets issued by the usual tourists' agents are available for the 
steamers between Cologne and Mayence, subject to conditions 
printed on the tickets. It Is important to note that in these cases 
the train may he eichauged for the steamer, or nUt nerid, only at 
the terminal station in the coupon. Third-dlasa passengers may 
travel in the saloon on paying the difference to the purser ('Con- 
dnkteur') on board.

Vn. W&Udng ExonTsioiu. 

The pedesbriaa la uaquaetioatMy the most independent of 
traTellars, and to Mn> alone (he beautiful soenery of some of the 
more remote districts Is acceeaibla. For a shoit toui a couple of 
flannel shirts, a pair of worsted Blockings, slippers, the articles 
of the toilet, a light wiMrptoof, and a stout anhtetia will generally 
be found a sufficient equipment. Strong and well'tried boots are 
essential to comfort. Heavy and complicated knipascka should be 
avoided; a light poach oi game-bsg is far less irksome, and its 
position may be shifted at pleasure, A more eitenslTO reserve of 
clothing should not exceed the limits of s small portmanteau, which 
can be easily wielded, and may be forwarded from town to town 
by post. 

The banks of the Rhine abound la charming scenery, which it 
will amply reward the pedestrian to explore; many districts replete , 
with both historical and natural interest are described in the fol- 
lowing pages. The following ue especially recommended to the 
notice of travellerB ; The Seven Mts. (R. 13), the Eifel (R. 26), 
the banks of the MoseUe (B. 25), the Tmnns (R. 29), the Oden- 
wald (E. 31), the Black Forest (R. 48), the Vosges (ItR. 42, 44), 
and the environs of SchaShausen and Falls of the Rhine (S. 49). By 
consulting the Handbook the traveller will discover many attractive 
spots, both in these and other districts. 

Ym. Cycling Hotes. 

Cycling is very prevalent in the Rhenish districts, and there are 
snitabte roads all the iray from Holland to Bale and the Lake of 
OoDstance. Among the most popular bite for wheeling are the left 
bant of the Rhine from Bonn to Bingen, the Ehelngau, the valley 
of the Moselle, the road from Frankfort to Heidelberg, the Neokai 
valley and the W. slopes of the Black Forest, and the roida skirting 
the Haardt Mts. and the Yosges. Excursions in the Black Forest, 
the Tosges, or other mountainous districts make considerable de- 
mands on the strength and staying power of the rider, bot some 
delightful [ides downhill may be begnn at the highest-lying railway- 
stations. Dangerous places are generally marked on the cycling 
maps mentioned at p. ilt, but the cyclist should always be careful 
on roads unknown to him. Strong brakes and a good lamp for night- 
riding are indispensable. 

Some of the narrower and steeper streets in towns and vUlages 
are apt to be closed to the cyclist, and resbietiona are also often made 
on the u!e of the wheel in public parks. In most oases a namber- 
plate has to be attached to the blcyle, and the police have the right 
to demand the exhibition of thei^cIist'B club-tioket or passport. All 
regulations of this kind are stringently enforced by the anthorittas.

IZ. Hotels. 

The flnt-ciiBS hotels In tlie principal to^ns and watering -places 
throughout Germany are generally good and somewhat espensive; 
but it Aequently happens that in old-fashioned hotels of unassum' 
[ng exterioi, particularly in places off the beaten track , the travel- 
ler finds more real comfort and mucb lower charges. 

The average charges in the flrst-class hotels are as follows : room 
(including light and attendance) 3'5 J(, plain breakfast 1-1 Va UH, 
dinner 3-5 J(, pension (i.e. board and lodging) 6-10 Jl. In some 
of the most Inxnrioasl houses, and for eilia accommodation, the 
charges are considerably higher. When not otheririse indicated, 
R. (room) in the Handbook Is used to include light (L.) and atten- 
dance (A.). 

When the traveller remaine for a week or more at a hotel, it is 
advissble to pay , or at least call for his account eiery two or three 
days, Jn order that erroneous insertions may be detected. Verbal 
reckonings are objectionable , except in some of the more remote 
and primitive districts where bills are never written. A waiter's 
mental arithmetic is faulty, and the faults are seldom In favour 
of the traveller. A favourite practice is to present the bill at the 
last moment, when mistakes or ivilful imposition cannot easily

be detected oi rectified. Those who purpose sttitlns euly in the 
moining will do well to ask for tbeir bills on the previons evening. 
English trSiTellers often Impose coosldersble trouble by ordering 
things almost unknown In Qerman usage i uid if Ignarince of the 
language be added to want of conformity to the cnstoma , mis' 
underetindings and disputes are apt to ensue. The reader is there- 
fore lecommended to acquire if poeaibte such a moderate proflcieney 
in the language as to render him intelligible to the setTaDte, and to 
endeavooi to adapt his lequiremente to the habits of the conntry. 
For thU purpose Batdekefi itanual of Conversation (3 jf) and 
Batdtktr'i Converiation Dictionary (In four languages; 3 Jl) will 
be found useful. 

X. Climate. Qrape Cnre. 

The climate of W. Germany is influenced by the comparatiTe 
proilmlty of the North Sea, whieh renders the temperature remark- 
ably mild. While the annnsl mean temperature in E. Germany is 
only abont 43-48° Fahr., In the valley of the Rhine it rises to ovai 
510 (Cologne 60.2°, Coblenz 60.0°, Heidelberg 61.4<0. Thus, owing 
to the early springs and the long warm autumns, a tour In the 
Rhenish provinces is still enjoyable at a season when the Alps and 
the monnlainouB districts of Central Germany are beginning to feel 
the frosts of the coming winter. This geniality of climate is also 
very favourable to the ripening of the grapes ; and hence it is that 
the 'Qrapt Cure', a very popular continental institutioa, long 
established in Southern Tyrol and on the banks of the Lake of 
Geneva, has been introduced into the Khenish Provinces also. 

Grapes when eaten In moderate qnantity (l-2tbs. daily) have 
a soothing effect on the mucous membrane, and In conjunction 
with a generous diet contribute materially to restore the strength 
of convalescents. When eiten in greater quantities (3-8lbB, daily), 
the vegetable acid and salts produce an effect similar to that of 
mineral waters containing Glauber's or common salt. The grapes 
of the Rhenish Palatinate ['Gutedel' or 'Jnnkei', and 'Oester- 
reicher' or 'Sylvanei') are large, thin-skinned, and well-flavonred, 
and hence this district is the centre of the 'Cnre'. QUinBtiler

the TMt variety and excellence of the white wines which [he; 
produce. On the baBka of tiie Rhine from Hayenoe to Bonn, a dis- 
taace of 90 M., the cultivation of the line may be eeeu in the 
greatest possible partection. 

Ho error has been more pievalant than that the Bhenieh and 
Hoaelle wiues poaaesa an injaiious acidity. Liebig on the coutiaiy 
■ffirmt, not only that the exquieite bouquet of the Rhine winee 
is owing to the free acid which they contain, but that some of 
their most salutary propertiea adse from the tartar present iu tiiem. 
To this he attributes the immunity enjoyed by those who use the 
Oerman wines from the nrlo acid diathesis. Many others who hive 
investigated the subject enteitain the same opinion. Another ad- 
vantage possessed by Rhenish wines is the total absence of biSAdy, 
an ingredient with which the wines of Spain, Portugal, and Sicily 
are almost invariably fortifled, to the utter destruction of their 
flavour, and the injury of the health oC the consumer. The diseases 
which attack spirit-drinkers, chiefly disorders of the liver, are com- 
monly met with amongst consumers of fortifled wines, though such 
maladies rarely follow even the intemperate use of pure wine. That 
the addition of alcohol to wine is unnecessary for its preserTation is 
proved by the fact that Rhine wines often retain their excellenoe 
for hslf-a-centuiy, although they seldom contain more than eight 
Di nine per cent of atoohol. The very property of keeping is indeed 
mainly attributable to the fact that the (eimentation is more per- 
fect In Rhenish wines than in those of Spain and Portugal, where 
fermentation is obecked by the addition of brandy. With the white 
wines of France the same object Is effected by sulphuration. By 
these processes the rlcliness and sweetness of new wine are artific- 
ially and unwholesomely retained. 

The traveller who finds the table-wina of the hotels unpala- 
table, and whose eye wanders in bewilderment over the 'Wein- 
kaxte', is recommended to select a bottle of still Hock or Moselle 
at 3-4 ^ per bottle, at which price the taste ought to be grati- 
fied. The hotel-prices of the high-class still wines , as well as of 
the sparkling wines, ate often exorbitant. 

The BheiitfSin, a district about 15 M. in length, produces the 
finest wines of the Rhine. Here is situated ^cMoii Johatmitbtrg, 
a most favoured spot, yielding a wine almost without rival. As the 
celebrated vineyards do not exceed 55 acres in area, little of this 
rare product falls to the share of the ordinary public. Moreover the 
first qnality Is only obtained in the finest seasons; the grapes 
are selected with the utmost care from the ripest bunches , not 
a drop of the pteolons jnice being allowed to escape ; the yield.

The Tarious qualities of this wins are sold in the iiask at Soblosi

wines of the ricinitr, distinguished by the name of Johatmuberg- 
Klaui, and those yielded by the vineyards of Count Scbonbotn, are 
also highly esteemed. There is also 'Johannisberger' piodaced From 
the yineyards of the villaga of that name, but this is inferior to 
many of tbe other products of the Rheingau. In this neighbour- 
hood are Rudeakeim and Geiienheim, both produoing flrst'Class wines. 
Bingen is a favourable district for strong wines; the hill behind it 
yields ScharlachbergeT (soe below). Below Bingen, on the opposite 
bank, is Atimannihauitn, the red wine of which holds a high rank 
and in good vintagosyies with Burgundy of the best elasB, being made 
from the same species of grape ; but unfortunately, like the latter, it 
is often impaired by travelling. The Marcobrunn vineyard, between 
Hattfnhtim and Erbach, produces a white wine of eiquisite flavour 
and bouquet. The wines, however, which compete most successfully 
with Johannisberger and trench closely upon its celebrity, are the 
Steinbtrger, produced from the carefully-cultivated vineyards on the 
hill at the back of Hattenheim, and the Eauenthaler Berg (p. 142), 
the best vintages of which are unsurpassed in flavour and quality. 
Hochlieim, situated on the Main, yields a wine of very superior 
quality, and has given the name of 'Hook' to the produce of the 
country generally. 

The VaJle; of the Bhine below Bingen produces many pleasant 
and whnlesoma winea, but inferior to the above. Those of Lorcft, 
EnghoU, Steeg, Obenetstl, and Boppard may be mentioned among 
the white. The Rheinbleicherte (i.e. 'bleich rothe', or pale red^ of 
Stteg, ObtTwtael, and Sackarach, and the light-red wines of Sahig, 
Camp, Horchheim, the KreuiAerg (near Ehrenbreitstein], and Vrbar 
are also esteemed. Moat of the wines grown below Cobleni are light- 
red. Lin: produces excellent Rheinbleicherte. 

Sheniah Bavftria yields a vast qoantity of white wine, gener- 
itly known as wine of tbe Haardt, or Palatinate. Tbe best 
qualities are those of Rtippertsberg , Deidealteim , and font, after 
which rank those of Vngatein, Dv.rkheim, Wachenheim, and Kdnig>- 
bach. Good red wines are grown at Oinitntldinjien and Calbtotll. The 
inferior wines of this district usually have a coarse, earthy Bavour. 

Bheniah Heaae produces the excellent Scharltichbtrger above 
mentioned, next to which rank Nicrsteiner, Oppwifieinwr, Lau- 
benheimer, and BodenKeimer, all pleasant wines, but less delicate 
than those of the Rheingau. twt/i-auCTimitcft ('LaitdeNotraDame')

The Koiella wines are ohlefly grown amidst rugged and steiile- 
looking slate rocks, and are distiaguished by their delicate, aromatie

bad years. They are aonsidered remarkably wholesome, being fre- 
quently rocomiDended to persons of sedentary habits. The best are 
Bratuxtberger, Ohligiberger, and BemeatlcUr Doctor, which possess 
a delicious 'bouquet' ; and next to these may be placed the wines of 
Zetiingen, Oraaeh, Piiport, and Orunham,

The difference which exists among the pradneta of the varioua 
vintages on the Rhine presents a marked oontraat (a the tolerably 
nnlform quality maintained by the winea of Southern Europe. The 
best wine-years of the nineteenth century In the Kbinegan were 

1806, 1811, 1822, 1834, 1846, 18B7, 1862, 1866, 1868, 1893, and 

1895; and good average vintages occurred in 1801. 1802, 1804,

1869, 1861, 1884, 1886, 1689, 1892, and 1897. But even in these 
years the yield vras by no means tiuifOTmly excellent In all parts of 
the Bhineland. The climatic conditions are not the same in all the 
dtatricti; different years seem to suit the different kinds of vine; 
and the vineyards in the mast favoured positions, where the grapes 
ripen soonest, often suffer the most severely from the early spring 
frosts. In a fall 'autnmn', which ia hardly ever attained, a 'motgen'

XII. Rhenlali Art. 

In the valley of the Rhine we find that several different strata 
of civilisation , if we may use the expression , had deposited them- 
selves ere the rest of Germany had abandoned its'primitive forest 
lite. The loneat of these strata, were a section of them exhibited 
in geological fashion, would show an ante-Roman period, when the 
natives carried on a busy trade with the Mediterranean seaports and 
with Etruria. After Cffisar's campaigns a new stratum was gradually 
farmed by the occupation of the country by Koman military colo- 
nists. This stratum was afterwards sadly contorted and broken by 
the storms of the barbarian migrations, and was at length almost 
entirely covered by that of the Fcankish- Christian period, which 
began in the Tth century. 

On Rhenish soil antiquarians will find frequent opportunities 
of tracing back the bistoiy of human culture to its earliest begin- 
nings, while the RouAH relics are so numerous and important aa to 
arrest the eye of even the superflcial observer. The Feutinger 
Tabula, the mediaval copy of a Itoman map, now preserved at 
Vienna, shows the pflncipal towns on the Rhine and also on the 



BHENISH ART. tit 

tributaileB of its leftside, togethei witli the losde coDDecting them, 
and even the b»tliB and other pobllo buildings with which they 
were embellished. The Roman colonlej on the Shine, being chiefly 
the headquarters of the diffeiant legions , always piesented a mili- 
tary chuactei. Most of the existing monnmenta are accordingly 
YotiTe atonas and tombstones of soldiers. The artistic forms are, 
BB anile, eomewhat primitiie, while the scbjecta are freqaenUy 
borrowed from the Oriental worship of Uithrae. We also And that 
Id Bome cases Gallic deities have been Romanised. The principal 
oolleetious of Roman antiquities' are at Bonn, Cologne, Wieihadm, 
CarliTuU, Mannheim, Sptytr, Idayence, and Trivei. At TrSvea, 
moieOTei, we obtain an admirable idea of the character of a very 
important Roman provincial town, 

TVipM, the capital of Germania Inferior , and for a conaideiable 
time an imperial residence, did not merely possess buildings of 
practical ntiltty like most otthe other colonies, but was also embel- 
lished with some of tike noblest decorative Roman structoiea ever 
erected north of the Alps. On the banks of the Moselle also, outside 
the town, rose along aeries of villas, many of which were riohiy de- 
corated with mosaics. Before the decline of the Roman supremacy 
Chbistianttt established itself on the banks of the Khine, but 
no churches of the earliest Christian epoch are now extant. The 
only relics of that period are the nucleus of the cathedral of Treves, 
a number of tombstones at Treves , and seveial monumental in- 
scriptions, such as that In the porch of St. Oereon at Cologne. 

In consequeoceofthe barbarian migrations, the Roman-Christian 
culture was afterwards almost completely buried beneath a new 
ttratam of Gennsn paganism, and the vast valley of the Rhine 
relapsed into its primitive rudeness, although at Cologne and Trives 
the arts were not entirely extinct. The Austrasian princes, however, 
were maniflcent patrons of the church, and tbe Bishops of Treves 
and Cologne (JVti»(iui and Ckarentmui, abont the middle of the 6th 
cent.*) distinguished themselves by their zeal for chnrch-bnlldlng. 

The artistic efforts of the Merovingian period, of which a few 
traces only are left , as in the Cathtdrat at Trinei, appear to have 
been very insignificant compared with those of Chitrlemague'i reign 
^768-814). In the prosecution of his numerous undertakings tbe 
great emperor was not merely stimulated by his zeal foe the promo- 
tion of art, but by his ardent desire to revive the ancient gloiy of 
the Roman empire and to invest his capita] with all the splendour of 
the ancient imperial residences, and particularly (hat of Ravenna. 
The Oarlovingisn ait was entirely centred around the court of the 
emperor, and he was personally attended by a circle of scholars 
caUed his academy. Among the members of the academy was 
BgiiAard, who in consequence of his sorname Bezaleel has been 
supposed to have been familial with art , but of whose laboun in 
that sphere nothing certain is known. To him is attributed ttbe

the interior of the rotunda (as In the case of St, Maria im CapHol 
at Cotogtxe and the Mintter at Etien), has been borrowed. 

The mBgniflcaDce of the palaeea vhloh the great empeioi pos- 
sessed on the banks of the Rhine was a faTOuiite theme with the 
poets and prose-writers of the day. According to their accounts the 
Pakux at Ingelheim was not inferior in splendour to that of Aiz-la- 
Ohapelle Itself , but of that edifice there is now no trace beyond a 
few fragments of walls and of columns which haie been transferred 
to other buildings. The same variety of capitals is also seen in the 
Chunk of St. Juttin at Hochtt am Uain fonnded under Abp. Otgar 
of Mayence (826-847). — Daring the later Carlo'inglan period the 
Khineland again suffered severelf from an irruption of barbarians. 
At this period the Normans took posaesaion of the banks of the 
river and penetrated Into its side-valleys ; but civllieation was now 
too far advanced to be serionsly retarded by this catastrophe- 
Endowed with a rich art -heritage banded down by antiquity, 
the Rbenish-Frankish tribes gradually overspread the coontry after 
the middle of the 10th cent. , from which petlod down to the Re- 
formation the development of Rhenish art is traceable without in- 
terruption. 

In the Eaklt Middlb Aobb (10th-12th cent.) Rhenish art 
differed materially from that of most other parts of Germany in 
being the product of an already cultivated soil, where ancient 
models were abundant , while in these other districts it was the 
growth of a soil previously unttlled. On the banks of the Rhine 
were preserved fragments of Roman and early-Ghrtstlan edlflces; 
there the eye was familiar with architectural forms and mouldings; 
in the Rhenish towns were always to be found srtiflcera posaeaaed 
of considerable manual skill; and owing to the constant com- 
munication kept up with foreign places skilled labour could always 
be readily Imported when necesaary. Rheniah art was thus matured 
considerably earlier than that of Lower Saxony and Swabia. At 
the same time the featarea common to the whole of early medieval 
art in the weat recur in that of the Rhine also. The forms of 
worship having been well defined in the early -Christian period, 
the churches all present a certain aniformity of appearance. Like 
the early-Christian basilicas, the Rhenish ehurehes of the 10th- 
12tb cent, are of an elongated form ; they possess aisles which are 
lower and narrower than tiie nave; the altar is placed at the round- 
ed extremity of the nave-, and on the whole the.basUlca. type Is 
preserved tluoughoot. '^ iOO.;k'

The Rbentsh ediflcei hUo posseaa the ctiancterlstlcB of the 
BoBUUiHqna Styla, wbioh ne common to the great majorttyof 
woiki of the ll>tli-12th centarteg. In this atyle the pilhrs and 
columns are connected by me>ne of round uches, the docn and 
windove also termtnale In round archee, and the naies and aleles 
are either covered with flat roofs or with groined vaoltlng of loand- 
ed form. The Oibieal Capitat, which was probably imented by 
medliBial architects for the parpose of forming a humoniona con- 
necting link between the column and the arcb abOTO , ia also used 
In the Rblnetand , and the copings and mouldings of the Rhenish 
buildings are the same as those employed in the contemparaDSons 
ediflcea of Western Europe. The Rhenish sichitecture, bowerer, oc- 
cupies an independent position of its own within the Bomaneaque 
groap. The character of the buitding-maierial (red sandstone or 
tufa), local traditions, and the prevalent taste of the period all 
combine to impart to the Rhenish buildings a distinctiTe character 
whieh seldom or never lecuis in other countries. At an early period 
the use of alternate courses of different colours came into vogue. 
Thus we find arches faced with stone alternating with light'COloured 
brick, the latter material having been taken from Roman mina; 
and when the architects had exhausted their supply of bricks , the 
art of making which was unknown in Germany in the early middle 
ages , they produced the same effect by the use of duk and light 
coloured atones. The copings on plllsra and walls were generally 
copied front Koman models, and the ancient Corinthian Capitals, 
formed of a wreath of leavea, were imitated with varying success 
(as, indeed, had also been the case in tlie Csriotingian epoch). 
The long- established practice of art, and the wealth which the 
Rhenish towns succeeded in amassing at an early period, enabled 
them grsdnsUy to extend the dimensions of their churches , to 
develop the construction of vaulting earlier than elsewhere, and 
to impart to their bulldinga a pictureaque richness of effect. — 
The lamo conditions were likewise fsvonrable to the development 
of the QoLDEiirra'a Art, and that of Enahbl FAiNirxa. The 
Rhlnelsnders also attained considerable proficiency in Md&al 
Faiktiko at an early period , but for the plastic art they displayed 
less aptitade. 

As early as the 11th cent, the practice of art and of artistic 
handicrafts aeema to have become naturalised in theBhanlsh towns 
and in those of Lorraine. In all the larger (owns extensive building 
operations were undertaken, and at the same time a number of 
handsome abbey-chnrohes sprangup. At Strniitiurf s cathedral was 
erected by Bittvup Wtmtr; at Colo^me the srchbishops Htrlbett and 
Anno exhibited much zeal for church- bull ding ; and at Trivei the 
cathedral was extended by Foppo. The grandest monumenia of

oulminated in their Romanesque cathedral!. It haa frequently

leeent researches prove that the Taalting of May en ee Cathedral datei 
from immediately after 1081, when the older wooden tool was de- 
stroyed by fire. It is also protiable that the nave of Speyer Cath-

ed roof soon after 1097. Tba abttimiag Abbey Church of Laaeh pmjei 
that vaulted ehurohes were easily and skilfully constructed In the 
first half of the 12th cent., uotwithstanding the novelty of the style. 
While the pillars of this church are of uniform pattern and aie 
placed at considerable intervals, those of the Central Rhenlsb ea- 
tbedrals are placed mach closer together, and those which bear the 
vaaltlng ue differently ahaped from those sapporttng the arcades. 
Towards the end of the 12th cent., and (or a considerable part 
of the 13th, CoLOOHB was the chief cradle of Rhenish art. The ea- 
credness of the city as the custodian of the highly revered relics of 
the Magi, combined vrlih the wealth and the political power of its 
enterprising citizens, not only led to the rebnUding of all the prin- 
cipal churches at this period, but was condnclve to the general pro- 
gress of ucbitecture, uid contributed to impart a rich and pictur- 
esque decorative character to the city itself. The architects do not 
Esem to have limed at grandeur of dimensions. The naves of Uie 
churches are usually small and insigniflcaot, but the builders ex- 
pended their utmost skill on the embellishment of the choirs. The 
apse, In combination with the rounded transepts, was regarded as 
the nucleus of the church , the other distinctive features of which 
couaUted of the gable of the choir, the dome, sndthe towers. As an 
example of the picturesque effect of this arrangement we may men- 
tion the Chureh of iht Apo$tUi at Cologne when viewed bom the 
Neumukt. At the same time variety of ornament , richness of ar- 
ticulation, and pleasing effects of colour were also studied. Immed- 
iately under the roof runs a gallery, which is of some structural 
importance inasmuch as It lessens the dead weight of the wall, but 
is also effective in a decorative point of view as the small columns 
stand out in strong contrast to the dark background. Oenerally, 
Indeed, the Rhenish masters appeu to have devoted much attention 
to such effects of light and shade. Under the gallery runs a frieze 
consisting of dark slabs framed vrith light-coloured stone; the col- 
umns and half-columns are of a different material bom tbe walls ; 
and even the pilasters are composed of dlDterently-coloored stones. 
In keeping vrith this picturesque character is the richness of the

aetei, wbioh ate typical of the Rhineland, and occut in almost evelf 
town ot any importance, are usually described as belonging to the 
TiuNBinoKAL STTI.B, as if the tbrms recoiling in them were iden- 
tical with those which pave tbe way for tbe Qotble. The term, 
however, is entirely misapplied, as it Is impossible in the rich and 
h«ndsome Rhenl«h oburcbee ot the 12tb and beginning of the 13th 
cent, to discover the slightest germ of the Gothic style. The style 
may, however, be appropriately characterised as the final and moat 
ornate tnanifestatton of Romanesque architecture, a definition which 
is borne oot by the general tendencies of Rhenish art. As an aaxll- 
taty of this style we may now mention the art ot Mitbal PAriTiNo, 
which was developed at an nnnsnally early period. Most ot these 
paintings were unfoctonately covered with whitewash at a later pe- 
riod, bnt those still existing (at Stbwars-BhtindoTf, opposite Bonn, 
the paintings of which resemble a symboUo poem , at Brauictiltr 
near Cologne , In 81. Maria itn Capitol at Cologne, etc.^ exhibit a 
rich and thoagbtfnl style of composition, and show that the painters 
were skilled In drawing and even in the delineation of complicated 
action. We cannot with any certainty jndge of the eolonring , bat 
we at least possess sufrioient materials to warrant the Inference that 
the art of wali-palntlng was Indastrionsly practised on the banks of 
the Rhine as early as the second half of the 12th centnry. 

Thla prevalent branch of the Romanesque style, with its highly 
developed ornamentation, was not hastily abandoned by the Rhenish 
masters, and it was not till about the year 1250 that the Oothio 
Style, introduced from Fiance, was completely nationalised In this 
part of Oeimany, The precise manner in which the Qothic aicbl- 
tactare, with its spirited flying bnttresses, lofty vaulting, and other 
members relieving tbe monotony of the walls , was Introdncod into 
the valley of the Rhine is unknown; but it was prol)ably adopted 
Blmnltaneously at several different points. At Cologne we observe 
in the church of St. Oerton an attempt to apply the new piecepta to 
the old forms, and In tbe chnrcb of the Minoriit) we have a some- 
what plain example of Gothic dating from the middle of the 13th 
century. In the LiehfTaven-KiTche at Tricti the Gothic forms were 
■nccessfully adapted at an early period to an nnusual gronnd-plan. 
The Ciiterelrm Church at Marimslatt in Nassau la a fine example of 
the early-Gothic style, destitute as yet of all ornamentation, and to 
the same style belong the church of Rufach in Alsace and the west-

style, while it Straiiburg and Freiiurg the esrller RomniMque be- 
ginnioge weie adapted to the new Gothic work. Qoethe has con- 
tributad much to immortalise the nime of Erviin of (iteiabach, who 
is usually described is the oiiglDatoi of Strassburg Hlnstei, butth&t 
matter's ictusl share of the work seems to have been limited to tbe 
W. facade. The masters of the StiassbuTE as well as of the 
Cologne cathedral must have been thoroughly couTersaut with the 
details of French Gothic, bat they were very fat from being mere 
mechanical copyists. The facade at Cologne and the tower at 
Strassburg are entirely emanations of OermaD imagination. In 
order, howeier, to convince himself of the independence of the 
Oerman masters of the Gothic style the traveller must not confine 
his attention to the great cathedrals. Among the Sm&llbb Gotbic 
Chdkohbb he will discover frequent proofs of originality and not 
a few gems of architectaie. Among these smaller choichei we 
may mentton the grave and dignlDed Abbty Church of AUa^trg, 
near Cologne, and the CoUtsiate CAukA af Zanl«n , erected under 
the inSuence of Cologne masters; the superb CfturcA of St. Cath- 
arine at Oppenheim and the ponderous Cathedral ofFranltfort on the 
Central Rhine ; and lastly , in Alsaoe, the Chtirch of St, Qmrge at 
Sehiettitadt, the CAurcA of 8S. Peter and Paul at Weutenburg, the 
chnreh of NiedeT-Hailaeh , and that of TAonn, with its graceful 
tower. The numerous churches of the Mendicant and Dominican 
orders, some of which have nave and aisles of equal height, are gen- 
erally too plain and monotonous to arouse much general int«reet. 

The highest efforts of the Gothic architects In this part of Ger- 
many were devoted to the building of churches, bnt the Rhenish 
districts also contain Sbodlls Gdipiobb, including castles, town- 
halls , guild-houses , and private mansions , which present Gothic 
forms or at least OoUilc characteristics. 

The eye, however, is less frequently struck by buildings of thU 
class than by the churches, partly because well-preservad eiamplei 
are now comparatively rare, and partly because In secular archi- 
tecture generally there Is usually less room for marked changea of 
atyle. Throughout the whole of the middle ages the dwelling-houses, 
for example, were constructed of timber, and the character of their 
ornamentation was rather determined by the nature of the material 
than by the fashion of the day. Even in the case of the stone 
houses the projecting upper stories frequently recall the style of 
their wooden predecessors. The architectural character of the 
palaces, chateaui, and castles, on the other hand, was necessanly 
determined by military considerations. As the requirements of both 
defensive and offensive operations were almost equally Important 
during the 11th cent, and again daring the 13th, the ch&teaui and 
castles retained the same forms for several centuries. Of Balbs- 
rossa's residence at Qtlnhattien, an Imperial palace of the Roman- 
esque period, there still exist considerable ruins. The palace of the

the Thirty Yeut' Wu. Among the medJxTil Gasti/w those of 
AlSAoe >ie Teiy nnmeroaB and importtut. The most consideiabla 
are the thtee Caitlei of SappoitiatUar, that of Hoh-Barr neiT Za- 
bern C^l'^'O], the Hoh-Kdnigsburj/, the Watenburg, Dear Niedei- 
bronn, and the Cichttrtberg neac Neuweiler, the last three belonging 
to the Gothic period. Most of the hlUs on the banks of the Rhine 
■ad its tribntaiies are also crovned with the Eoins of mediaval 
castles, OT others leboilt In their original style. In most cases the 
plnnaded Bergfried, or keep, which was used both for purposes of 
attack and defence, la still standlngj remains of the Potoi, or 
dwelling-house, are also frequeatl; preserved ; and in many cases 
the outworks, gateways, and towers by which the approach to the 
eaatle was protected are still traceable. These rains, howeToi, which 
impart so picturesque a charm to the scenery of the Rhine, rarely 
possess much artistla value. The most tnteresttng of the Rhenish 
castles is that of Relekenbtrg, near St. Ooarshaasen, with its three 
stories borne by colunma. 

The Gothic architecture is also notable for the richness of its 
Flastiq Obnamentation. The portals and the various niches 
and canopies are genersUy filled with statues, and the gables and 
other parts o[ the building adorned with reliefs. The finest speci- 
mens of Gothic statuary are to be seen on the Fortali of the Litb- 
f^auen-Sireht at Trhite and the Cathedrals of StroNbvrg and FVei- 
buTg. The Stataei of the ApoilUs In the choir of the Cologne Cath- 
tdral also afford evidence that the Gothic sculptore was sometimes 
richly coloured. The S4me cathedral also contains the Montimtnt 
of Archbishop Conrad von Eoehitadtn, the flnest specimen ofbronze 
Statuary of the Gothic period. The numerous tombstones of that 
period must also be elamined by the student of the progress of 
Gothic sculpture, such as those atArchbiihop Siegfried, Peter Aapelt, 
and Johann von Saiiau, In the Cathtdral of Maytnce, and those of 
SuntAcr von Schwarsburg and Jolumn von Holcbmisen and ftii Wife 
in the CathedTOl of FTonlcforl. The best examples of late-Gothio 
sculpture, which afterwards degenerated into a mere handicraft, are 
to be found in the sltsts of carved wood. 

ThiODghoot the middle ages, however, Rhenish artists evinc- 
ed more aptitude for the ait of FAnrnNO than for that of sculpture. 
Tbe stained glass at Straisburg, Colognt, and Oppenheim, and the 
remains of 14th cent, mural paintings at Cologne are not less val- 
uable than the easel-pictures of the l&th cent, which are still pre-

bUd, the flneet Oennin ptlDtlng of the 15th centoiy. This master, 
who was a native of the district of Constance, and died, in 1451, 
has been anccsBsful In substituting figaies of eousiderable spirit 
and life for the traditional tTpes of his predecessors , with their 
emaciated arms, their nndeveloped basts, and theit childish ex- 
pression of countenance, bnt he has failed to take the next step to- 
wards Bdelity to nature by omitting to individualise Ms characters. 
His female figures are all exactly alike, and his male figures, though 
divided into young and old, are also destitute of distinctive charac- 
ter. In his treatment of the drapery, weapons, gold trinkets, and 
■U other external accessories, hovrerer, Meister Stephau cannot be 
reproached vtlth the fault of monoloay; in e>.ecatlng these details 
he U scrupulously faitbful to nature, and his task vrss dODbtless 
facilitated by his occasional use of the newiy-invented art of oil- 
painting. Tbe Dombild, the Madonna tritA tfte Violeii (preserved 
in tbe Archlepiscopal Museum], and the Madonna in the Arbour of 
Boiea (in the Musenm) are the most important works of this school, 
the career of which somewhat resembled that of the earty-Flemtah 
school under the teaderehip of Hubert van Eyck, The Rhenish mas- 
ters, however, were soon surpassed by their Flemish contemporaries, 
and ere long entirety lost their Independence. About the end of 
the I5th cent, the art of painting in the Rhlneland was at length 
thoroughly pervaded with Flemish inflnence. The new style, how- 
ever, was least suecessfolly ImitaUd on tbe Lower Rhine, and 
particularly at Cologne. A number of pictures of the end of the 15th 
and beginning of tbe 16th cent,, mostly found in churches of Co- 
logne, have been collected by the brothers Boisserie, Hr. WaUraf, 
and others. The drawing is stlfT, the colouring gaudy, and the ex- 
pression harsh. These works are generally classed in accordance 
with their subjects ; and we thus frequently heal of the 'Master of 
the Lyversberg Passion', the 'Master of the St. Bartholomew', and 
other equally vague designations. The bistarian of art will find 
abundant opportunity of studying this school tn the Wallraf-Riohartz 
Museum of Cologne. One of the best masters of the Lower Rhine 
was Jan Jotet of Calcar, who painted the htgh-altar-plece In Uie 
principal church there about 1505. Portrait- painting was also 
practised with some success at (his period by Barthtl dt Bruyn, 
Joharm von M<hlcm, and others. 

Tbe UrpBa Rhenish and Axbhannian School of PAOntiia 
had a more prosperous career than tbe Lower Rhenish. The masters 
of this school also succumbed to Flemish influence, but they suc- 
ceeded In making a better use of what they had learned in the 
Netherlands. At the head of tbe school was Martin Sohongautr of

of Darmstadt. 

When, St a lomewhat later period, tbe tide of tbe BenaiMSitea 
everllDved theRbinelsnd, It mat with little or no resistance. After 
a brief conflict vlth the Gothtc architecture, which gave rise to the 
erection of a number of curious balldlngs In » niiied style, the 
Renaissance, Introduced from France and Flanders, and possesBlng 
little tn common with the genuine Italian RenaiBsBDca, became 
naturallBed on llie banks of the Rhine about the middle of the 16th 
century. This new style of ait, however, never throve satisfactorily 
OD Rhenleb soil, partly becanse the Rhlneland had caaFed to be a 
great centre of civilisation as it had been In the middle sgat, part- 
ly becanse the sway of ecclesiastical princes is leas fsvaurabla to the 
steady piogjess of art than that ol hereditary sovereigns, and also 
becanse this anforiunate region was the theatre of numerous yr%n 
which of conrae paralysed all artiatlc effort. Although Renaissance 
art never tooli the form of a permanent and organic system, it has 
bequeathed to tbe Rhineland several worka of great importance. 
Foremost among these la the Caitle of Heldtlbery, tbe most sumptu- 
ous example of Geroian Renaissance, next to which we may men- 
tion the PoTcK of the BaOAata of Ctdogne, the fragment of tbe 
BailAmu of JUlieh, and the Schlota ofAicSa/fenbttrg. On the Upper 
Rhine, In the Palatinate, and In Baden we encounter a number of 
handsome chiteaui and pleasing houses In the Benalatance style of 
tbe 16th century. 

The history of the Pi^aitio Abt of the Renaissance period la 
traceable in the numeroua tombitonea of the IBtb and 17th oen- 
tulles, which are to be found not ontji in the Urge churches of the 
principal towns, but also in smaller and more remote places, such 
aa Shnmem, Boppard, and St. Amaal near Saarbrflcten. 

The dependence of the Rhineland on the Netherlands, wUch Is 
often noticeable In the province of architecture, is still more ob- 
vlona In the Faintinq of this period. Numerous Netherlands 
mastera migrated te the Qenaan courts, and tbe Qenuana thenb- 
aelves Imitated these foreign masters, even when they drew tbeir 
Inspitationa ftom the Italians. In the second half of the 16th cent. 
the Oenuan maatera fell under the influence of the Dutch school, 
■nd when French taste came to be in vogue they again yielded theli 
homage to the fashion of the day. Uany of these painters, even 
down to the 18th cent., such as Kooi, Jtincfecr, and Se^uiti, posMfied

favonrable notice and of inapicing the publio with confidence In the 
oapabiiitles of RlkeoUh attlats. The 'Romaiiticists' were desirons 
that Cologne sboold be made the new centre of art and Mience, but 
in ISlii the nnlversity vas founded at Bono, and in 1819 the 
academy at DOmbldobf waa re-established. The painter ComelUu, 
who iraa appointed director of the academy, and who niually spent 
the winter only at Dilsaeldorf (and the summer at Manlch). exer- 
eiaed no great InQuenoe on the progress of Rhenish art. He was 
anoceeded by WUhelm Schadmc (1827), under whose able guidance 
the DQsaeldorf School was broTight into the right Crack and seeared 
the favour of the pnblic. The chief subjects of the painters of this 
period are scenes ^m private lite, melancholy, aentlmental. and 
hamorous, or poetical themes readily intelligible to the middle 
claasea of aodety, and their style is generally pleasing. Some of 
tbe masters of this acbool, and particularly C, F. leasing, have also 
chosen themes of the deepest national Inteieat. Sixty yeara have 
elapsed since the Diiaa eld orf School first attained celebrity, and the 
public taite has undergone material changes since that period, but 
the indusMona colony of paintara on the banks of the DUssel still 
deservedly enjoys a high repatation. Lastly we may mention the 
aohool of art connected with the SiSdel Gallery at FajiNjtpORr, the 
academy of GaKL8BDHB, forming a kind of ofTahoot of the DQssel- 
dorf School, and (quite recently) Dabhbtadt, at all of which modem 
German painting Is taught and praotited with eoasidnahle sneceas.

Aix-la-CkapeUt (615 ft.), Genoia AaiAen, a very uiclent town 
with 136,335 inbab. (including Burtscheid, p. 12; ineoTporated in 
1697), the Aquae Orani of the Romans, lies in a fertile baain sur- 
rounded by gently sloping, wooded hills. It is a msnatsctaring town 
of same importance, with upwards of 100 cloth- tactotiee, 46 iron- 
foundriee and machine-ebope , etc. Aachen was frequently the 
residence of the Franldith liinge, and it was a favourite abode of 
Gbarlemagoe, who made it the capital of his dominions to the N. of 
the Alps, and died here in 814. From his deatb down to the ac- 
oession of Ferdinand I. (1531) Aiz witnessed the coionaCioQ of all 
the German empeiois (30), and was oalled par eicellenct the free 
city of the Holy Roman Empire and seat of royalty Curbs Aquentit, 
urbi rtfalU, rtgni ledei principalii, prima regum curia'). In the 
middle (gas Aix-la-ChapeUe was the scene of many imperial diets 
and ecclesiastical convocations, and in and after the 17th cent. 
EeTeral congresses met here. In 16Q8 the peace between Louie XIV. 
and Spain was concluded here, by which the French Idng abandoned 
his pretensions to the Netherlands ; the second Peace of Aix-Ia- 
Ghapelle, of 1748, terminated the Austrian Wat of Succession', snd 
by the treaty of 1818 the German armies were recalled from France. 
In 1793 the town was ooeupied by the French; in 1801 it became 
oapilal of the Department of the Roer; and in 181D it passed to 
Prussia. 

Externally this venerable imperial city has retained few celici 
of her ancient history, and is now practically a modem town. The 
cathedral, the Rathhans, a few relics of the mediieTal fortiScatione, 
now converted into promenades, such as the restored liaridiUr-Thor 
(PI. G, 5), the Ltmgt TImrm (PI. A, 3; fine view from the top, adm. 
20 pf.), and the recently restored Pont- TAof (PI, B, 2), dating from 
the 14th cent., and the Afari<n6ur£i (PI. B,l), of the 16tb cent., are 
the only remains of the old town. 

The open space in front of the Shmiih Station^. D, 6; p. 3) 
Is embellished with the *Warrior>' JIfonumcnl (PI. "iZ), designed by 
Drake and erected In 1872 in memory of the wars of 1866 and

and Ellaenhrunnen, see p. 10. Pasting the latter on the left, we 
proceed through the Ursuliner-Sti. to the cathedral, which rises 
nearly in the centre of the town. 

The ■Oathadnl, ox HlniUr (PL C, 3), consists of two distinot 
parts in difierent styles of architactnie. The portion erected by 
Cbirlemagne In 796-804 as the coort and national chnrch of the 
Carlovingian kingdom, and conseorated by Leo III., a noble example 
of the Byzantine style, is an octagon copied from San Vitale at Ra- 
venaa, and built by Hastei Odo, 48 (t. in diameter, surrounded by 
a sliteen'Blded ambnlatory, and terminating in a cupola, 104 ft. 
high. The eight gables of the central structnre are of the beginning 
of the 13th cent., the fantastic roof is of the ITtb. The octagon is 
surrounded by aeTeral Otaptlt, built in the 14th and 15th cent., and 
afterwards pairtly altered. On the W. side are the principal entrance 
and Testibnle, Bnmonnted by a modern Gothic bell-tower, with a 
pointed and slated roof. Adjoining the octagon on the E. is tiie lofty 
and elegant Gothic Choir, begun in 13&3, and completed in 1413. 

Tbtoi^h the W. portal, the Bronze Doort of which were cast 
aboDt 804, or the adjacent side-door, we enter the Vbstibulb, where, 
on modern pillars, stand a brazen Wolf (or 8he-Btar), a Roman work 
of the 3rd 0( 4th cent., and a Pine Con*, dating from the 10th cent., 
both having donbtleBs once belonged to foantains. According to a 
medixial legend, the devil helped in the conBtmction of the church 
on condition that the first liTing being that entered the building 
should be sacrificed to hin>. The magistrates entered Into the com- 
pact, but outwitted the deril by admitting a wolf into the sacred 
edifice on its campletion. 

The Inthbiob of thb Outaoon is borne by eight massiTe pillars, 
which Bepatale the central space from the surrounding two-storied 
ambnlatory. The lofty, ronnd-arohed openings of the upper story, or 
'HochmOnstet'(p. 7), are enlirened with a double row of columns, of 
unequal length, some of them in marble, others in granite, brought 
from Rome, Trites, and RaTenna. Some of them were replaced by 
new ones in 1845, and the capitals are all new. The large Motaio

the original insciiption of eight rerses has been tepioduced; and 
the columns are once mote, aa formerly, encased In cipolliuo. The 
gilded Condeldintm, opward* of 13 ft. In diameter, was presented 
by Frederick Barbaiosaa in 1165. The insoiiption 'Carole Maguo' on 
the pavement beneath it Is modern. The tomb of the great emperoi 
was probably in a ohapel adjoining tbe church. — Tbe so-called

The thirteen windows (83 ft. high, 6-16 tt. wide) are filled with 
modern •StaiTied Olatt, representing scenes from the life of the 
Virgin (Aseamption and Coronation designed byComelins), execnt- 
ed partly at Berlin, and partly at Cologne and Ali. On the pillats 
between the windows are statnes of Charlemagne, the Virgin Mary, 
and the Twelve Apostles, of 1130, recently colonred. In tbe centre 
hangs a piece of wood-carving (1564) above the empty Tom5 of 
Otko III. (d. 1002). In front of the tomb is a Rtading De»k, conaist- 
ing of an eagle on a rich stand of open-work, cast in copper in 
the I5th century. To the right and left are Winged Allan , with 
paintings ot tbe Cologne School (15th cent.). The Pulpit, adorned 
with copper-gilt plaques with embossed designs, precioas stones, 
and carved ivory (6th and 8th cent.), was a gift of Henry II. (d. 1024), 
bnt restored in the 17th cent.; It is protected by a wooden cover. 
The High Altar is a modern work ftom Schneider's designs (1876), 
in which seTeral old columns have been incorporated. The Epiicopal 
IKrofM and other modern church fomiture also deserve notice. The 
sacristan shows the pulpit, the imperial throne, and the sarcophagus

Tbe traveller's leisure had better be devoted to a walk on the

(QtooUKetk), a brick bulidlng dating from 1477, lud containing

ihelr disposal are recommended lo spend it at The Hague (by railway 
In ^/t bt. ; see Baedeker'e Belgium and Holland). 

The distriot traversed by the railway isperfeotly Hat, lying con- 
siderably below the level of the sea, which is excluded by means of 
caretuUy'Conatracteddykes and embankments. Canals, pasture-land, 
and oncaaionat windmills are the principal features of the scenery. 
The flrat station of importance is — 

iV/t U. Oonda, or Ter Qouw (■i)e Zaim, in the market-place], 
on the Tiict, .with 22,000 inhah., the staple commodities of which 
are bileki, olay-plpes, and an interior kind of oheese. The principal 
church (Qroote or Jam Ka^} oontains some flne old stained glass. 

38 M. Vtreebt (^'Fayi Bas; •Katteel van AnJiDtrpen,- BCt. de 
VEurope; Bellevue; Hti. de la Station, at the station), the 'Oude 
Tiechf or old ford, the Trajeettim ad Ehenum of the Romans, 
is one of iha most ancient towns In Holland (pop. 100,000). It 
belonged at one time to Lorraine , then to the German Empire, 
and was frequently the residence of the emperors. Here In 1579 
tha union of the seven provinces Holland, Zeeland , Utrecht, 
Gaelders , Over-Yssel , Friesland , and Groningen was effected, and 
Wimam I. of Orange was created stadtholder. In 1672 J.ouis XIV. 
took possession of the town and levied an enormous contribution. 
The well-known Peace of Utrecht, which ended the Spanish War of 
Sneeesstan, was conetuded here in 1713. — Tbe Rhine divides here 
into two arms; the Old Rhine, falling into the German Ocean near 
Katwyk, and the VtcM, falling into the Zulder Zee. 

Utrecht was celebrated at a very early period for its fine 
chvtohes , the most Interesting of which is the 'Cathedral, founded 
in 720, and dating In its present form from 1264-67. The Cni- 
oeriity, founded iu 1G36. Is attended by about 750 students. 

Beyond Utrecht the line crosses the t:tj\i.[(VaaTttcheRhyn}Kitiah 
unites the town with the Lek. Pleasant retrospect of Utrecht. To 
the right and left are four intrenchments (lunetlei) , now disused. 
At (45 H.) Zeiil (near which is Driebergen') there is a Moravian 
colony; then stations Maaribtrgen, and Veenendaatf with numerous 
apiaries. The line intersects the extensive iDOOr of the Yelavie,

KhBDieh Province ofPnuali, the reaideaee of an atchbiahop, and 
one of the most important commeicial places in Qemutny, is a fort- 
lesaofthe first class, with 988,000 inhabitants (five-sixths of whom 
are Roman Catholics}, inclading a garrison oF 8000 men and the 
Babuibs. It lies on the left banh of the Khine, across which & bridge- 
of-boats and an iron bridge lead to Deutz |j. 65]. From a distance, 
aad especially when approached by eteamboat, the town with its 
numerous lowers presents a very imposing appearance, but most of 
the old streets are narrow and gloomy. Many of them, however, 
eODtain interesting specimens of domestic architeotnie, dating 
from the 16th, 15ch, and even the 13th eentnry. The development 
of tbe town received a great Impetos in 1881 , when tbe adoption of 
a farther advanced line of fortlficalions literally doubled tbe area 
of the town-domain, and also in 1888 by the incoiporation of the 
Buburba of Bayenlkal, Ehrenftld, flippes, and Dtutt. Large harboar-

The ••CatlLSdnlf, or Dom (PI. E, F, 4), which jnsUy eicius 
the admiration at eTeiy beholder, »nd Is probably the most magni- 
ficent Qothic edifice in the world, stands on a slight eminence aboot 
60 ft. aboTe tbfl Rhine, partly composed of Roman and Frankish 
remains, near the Central Statton. It le dedicated to St. Peter. Aa 
early as tbe 9tb century an episcopal church (see p. 30) occupied 
this site, but in coarse of time the Inhabitants regarded It aa 
unworthy of the rapidly increasing size and prosperity of their city. 
The Archbishop St. Engelbert first enteruiued the project of erecting 
a nev church here, but in consequence ol his untimely death In 
1225 (see p. 36) ft was never eiecnted. His second successor Conrad 
of Hochsladen (see p. 36}, after the old church had been severely 
injured by a confiagration, at length laid the foundation-stone of 
the present structure with great solemnity on 14th Aug., 1248, The 
designer of this noble work IsbelieTed to have been MeitUr Qtrard, to 
whom the Chapter made a grant in 1257 in recognition of his services. 

The choir was the first part of the building proceeded with. 
Tbe work progressed slowly, Gerard's suecesaora, MeUter Arnold and 
his son MeistrtJdlutnn, being serlonety hampered by the struggles be- 
tween the archbishops and the citizens [see p. 30], The stone used 
in the building was quarried in the Draehenfels (see p. 93). On 
27th Sept., 1322, the choir, which had been temporarily terminated 
by a lofty wall towards the west, was solemnly consecrated by 
Archbishop Belnrich, Count of Vimeburg. Tbe builder soon 
proceeded to lay the tonndationa of the H. and (In 1325] 8, 
tiansepta, while at the same time the old church, which was still 
nsed for divine service, was gradually removed. In 1388 the nave 
was sufficiently advanced to be tempotartly fitted up for service, 
and in 1447 the bells were placed in the 8. tower. Subsequently 
the enthngiasm anbsided, and by the end of the 15th century all 
hope ofseelng the church completed was abandoned. The unfinished

■t the suggestion of Salplce Boiasertfe, caused it to be examined by 
the eminent architect Schinkel in 1816, and gave orders to preierve 
the hnlldiag aa it then wat. The voxi of reacoratlon waa not began 
till 1823. It was at first carried on nnder the Baperlntcndenco of 
AbUrl {d. 1833), and afteiwatds undet that of the talented Zioimer, 
a thorough master of the Qothlo style (d. 1861). On Zwimer's death 
R. YoigUl (1629-1903] succeeded to his office, and carried the work 
to an end. Zwimer vas tlie flnt to form the project of complet- 
ing the cathednl, an idea hailed witb general enthuetaam. The 
foundatioii'Btone of the nev pan of the building wis laid on 4th 
Sept. , 1842, and more than 15,0001. were afterwards spent yearly on 
the undertaking, the greater part of this amonnt being defrayed by 
government, the remainder by private snbscrtptiDns, societies, and 
the proceeds of a lottery. The entire sum expended tietween 1842 
and 1880 amounted to npwarda of 900,0001. The laat atone of the 
huge 8. tower was placed Is position in Angust, 1880, and on the 
15tb Oct. of the same year the completion of the cathedral was cel- 
ebrated in the presence ef the Emperor William I. and almost all 
the sovereign princes of the Qerman Empire. 

The cathedral is a cruciform structure (see Plan, p. 33), the 
nave being flanked with doable, and the transept with single Usles. 
Total length 157 yds., breadth 67 yds., length of transepts 94 yds., 
height of the walls 150ft., height of the roof 201 ft., height of the 
central tower rising over the crossing 357 ft. The W. towers are 
515 tC. in height (comp. p. 38). Thie enormous mau ot maMnry 
is enlivened by a profusion of flying buttreases, turrets, gargoyles, 
galleriei, cornices, foliage, elo. 

The * W. Fatade, whidk has been completed entirely in accord- 
ance with the still extant original daslgni of the 14th cent, with it« 
two huge towers, is a superb example of strictly consistent Gothic 
workmanship. The towers consist of four stories, of which the three 
lower are square in form, while the_ fourth is octagonal, crowned 
with elegant open spires. 

The largest ot Ih« BtlU In Ibe 3. tower Is the KaUtr-OlotU , which 
wu cut in 1870 with the metal of FreDCb gnna, and welglu ?I torn > 
'^1 Hneen are required to set It in mDUon. Tbe next two in point or 
niie, cut In 1447 and 144S, weigh II and 6 tons. 

The Frmeipal Forlal is 93 ft. In height and 31 ft. In width ; 
the side-portals 38 ft. high and 18 ft. wide; the central window 48 
ft. high and 20 ft. wide. The portal of the S. tower was decorated 
iu the beginning of the 15th cent, with eiaellent scvlptores, prob- 
ably by Mtiiler Conrad Kuyn. The bronze doors were modelled by 
SckneldtT of Cassel, and cast at Iserlohn In 1891-93. — The arms of 
the transept are terminated by the N. and S. portals, which were 
completed in 1869 , having been built entirely tma Zwlmei's 
designs, as the original plans were no longer exunt. The S. Portal 
is executed in a simple style; tiie beaattfnl hronte •Doom, from 
the designs of Utngtlbtrg of Utrecht, were cast at Stuttgart (1891J.

tome of ita details are even more perfect in foim. In its lower parts 
it exhibits the simple aod dlgnifled forms of the early Gothic style, 
while in the upper parts the full magnificence of the consummated 
art is dispUyed.

In 1863 the partition which for centuries had separated the nave 
from the choir (see p. 34} was removed, and in 1890-98 the mosaic 
pavemeut jfas restored from designs by Eisenvxin and Oeiger. The 
effect produced by the emtmbU is now singularly impressiTe.

W. portal, executed by JUttdc of Liibeck, was presented in 1878 
by Emp. Frederick III., when Crown Prince. The Ave stained-glass

presented by Archbishop FhUipp yon Daun-Obersteln, the town of 
Cologne, Archbishop Hermann von Hessen, and Count Philipp 7on

The subjects are: 1. Passion and Resurrection of Christ; below,

by Joieph FiMc\er and Bellweser, were presented In 1848 by King 
Lewis I. of Bavaria. ~ The first window on the W. side of the 
S. Transept was in 1856 fllled with sUined glass, execoted like the 
preceding In Munich, to the memory of Joseph von Oorres (1771)- 
1848], 'catholics veritatis defensori generoso'. The second window, 
and the one opposite it, representing respectively scenes from the 
livaa of St. Peter and St. Paul, were erected by the directors of the 
two leading railway-companies at Cologne. To the left of the latter 
is a window with S9. Sixtus and Hilarius. The modem stained-

the elevation of Archbishop von Geisael of Cologne to the rank of 
cardinal, are of Cologne workmanship. — The old etained glaas on 
the W, side ot the N, Transept ia from several ancient churcbea of 
Cologne, now demolUhed. 

The statues on the pillars of the vestibule , the nave , and the 
transept represent ptophete, apostles, and saints. — By a pillar of 
the S. transept stands a Statue of St. Chriitopher, about 10 ft high, 
dating ftom the beginning of the 16th century. The flist carred 
altat (1520) by the E. wall of this transept, in the late-Gottde style, 
is from the church of St. Maria ad Gradue (pnlled down in 1817) ; 
the second attar is of Westphalian origin (16th cent.). 

The Choib is separated from the nave by an iron raillag. We 
enter by the N. (left) door. Consoles projecting from the 14 pillan 
of the central part, oi Bigh Choir proper, bear 8tatue> of Christ, 
Hary, and the Apostles, dating from thei4th cent, and repainted 
in 1840 The nine frescoes in the spandrels executed by Stetnle 
In 1843, represent Angel Chain In the ecclesiastical symbolto style; 
they are beat seen from the gallery of the choir (p. 38). The walls 
behind the carved-wood Choir Stalls (14th cent.) are covered with 
interesting mural paintings of the same period, unfortunately 
concealed by silken tapestry worked by ladies of Cologne after 
Bamboux' designs. Under brasses, with engraved fuU-length flgurea, 
repose Archbishop von Spiegel (d. 1836) and Cardinal von Qelisel 
(d. 1864). The High AUar, restored in the original style in 1899, 
is sarmounted by the old 'Altar of St. Clara', with a flne nood- 
caiving of the Passion ; the wings are adorned with patnUngs of the 
school of Ueister Wilhelm. Above the triforium of the choir is > 
series of admirable old Stained Olati Windows, representing the 
kings of Judab, etc. (ca. 1300).

4. Chaptt of the Magi. Here were formerly preserved the 
'Bones of the Magi' or 'Three Kings', which were brought by the 
Empress Helena to Constantinople. They were afterwards taken 
to Milan , and in 1164 presented by Frederick Barbarossa to Arch- 
blshop Reinsld von Daseel, by whom they were removed to Cologne. 
This te the origin of the three crowns in the city's arm?. The re- 
ll([Dary in which they are preserved Is now in the treasury (p. 38).

The cbmch of 'St. Qsreoii (Pt. F, 3), dedicated to the 318 
martyrs of the Theban legion, with their captain Qereon, who, ae- 
cocding to the legend, perished here in 286 during the peitecutlon 



of the Christians under Diocletian, is an edlflee of very peculiar 
style (recently thoroughly restored). The long Romanesciue choir ia 
adjoined by a decagonal nave in the Gothic style, with a quadran- 
gular vestibule. The original stracture, circular to form, with ten 
niches resembling those of the Nymphsnm of the 'Minerva Medica' 
at Rome, is said to have been erected by the Empreii HeUna, mother 
of Congtantine the Great. Archbiihop Anno (d. 1075) added the 
choir and the spacious crypt, and Archbiihop Arnold II, built the E, 
apse and the two square towera about 1160, In 1219-27 the round 
part of the chucch, having become dilapidated, was cotiietted into 
the present decagonal nave, 153 ft. in height, 20 yds. in length, 
and lt5 in breadth, covered with groin od vaulting, the eight shorter 
aides retaining the original niches. Other alterations tooli place In 
the 14th and l5lh cent., to which period belongs the vaulting of 
the choir and of the vestibule. The saoritlan, who is generally to 
be found in the ehorch in the morning (visilon knock), lives at

pounds annually. The old parts of the towns are Irregalar and con- 
fined, but the modern portions contain many fine private buildings. 
Elberfold contains many benevolent inatitatians, and is famous for 
its admirable system of poor-relief. 

Tbe finest part of Slberfeld is the quarter to tbe S.W., ronnd

The lofty round Watch Tower on the Rhine, with an ocugonal 
story above, adorned with a frieze of pointed arches, was erected in 
1451-68 and restored in 1880. The wide breach on the W. side was

arches, the central of which has a span of 615 ft. (^Niagara Bridge 
840 ft.], while the total length ia 1415 ft. The rich plastic decora- 
tion is often of a hnmorona character (i.g. tbe lo-called 'Brdcken- 
tniinQchen'). Ovei the flight of steps ascending to the bridge from 
the Khine whatf is a seated flgure of Julius Cssar, though this was 
probably not the spot where he crossed the Bhtne (p. 77). The 
bridge atfords a Bne view of Bonn and the Seven Mts. {toll 6 ft.). 

At the end of the bridge, on the right bank of the Rhine, lies 
BansI (SchifptTS, with large vetsnda, near the bridge), a station of 
the railway on the right bank from Cologne to Ehretibreitstein 
(p. 81). The sution of the Broel Valley Railway (p. 66) lies below 
the bridge.

ascend by the Saurenberg or through the pretty Naehtigalltn-TUal, 
quitting the DrachenfeU read where it turns to the left, ^0 paces 
beyond the railway. The way through the Nachtigallen'Thal is that 
to the left; after 6 min. It crosses a bridge to the right. At the 
EDckstein (see below), both anile with the bridle-path. 

The traveller arriving by Steamboat pastes between the two 
diiefhoieleand to the left of the CbufcA and Oblricl Court, cioisei 
the railway, and aoon reaches the station of the Zahrwadbaiin, or 
rack-ind-pinioD railway. Walkers follow the bridle-path on the aide 
of the rock next to the Rhine, leading In ^/^ hr., partly throogh 
wood, to the terrace near the top. Several cabarets by the wayside : 
(10 min.) ZuT Sthdntn Autiicht, on the right, and Zur Drachm'

which oat path U Joined by that over the Sanrenbeig, and a little 
abOTe by that thtoagh the Nachtigallen-Thal (see abOTs; recom- 
mended to thoie returning to the railway -station). The path then 
■kirta the nck-aod-pinion railway, passes the huidiome Oothlc 
chateaa of * Drachenbvrg, the property of Herr Bottlnger, boilt in 
1833 by TiishaQs and Abbema, and elaborately decorated within 
with palntlngg and other works of art, and ascends the woodsd W. 
■tope of the hill to the terrace (^/^ hr. from KJinigBwinter). 

The easiest mode ofsicendingtheDtachenfela, however. Is now 
afforded by the Ra.CK mtd Pimiok Railw!.! (fores, see p. 92), which 
ascends the hill In an almost straight line and approaches d>e top, 
like the road, on the side farthest from the Rhine. Its length is 
1662 yds. and its rise 740 ft. ; the steepest gradient is 1 : 0. The 
vladnct halfway up affords a good view of the Draohenbarg. 

The Terrace (970 ft. i 'Hotel, R. from 3, B.I, D.3 Jl ; post and 
telegraph office ; concert on Wed. afternoon), a levelled rooty pla- 
tean about 100 ft. below the sommit, li embeliished with a Gothic 
ObelM commemorating the patriotic spirit of the Rhinelanders In 
the years 1813-15, designed by Zwirner and erected In 1867. 
From the veranda of the inn a series of steps descends to the bridle- 
path to Rhondorf (p. 82). 

The castle afI>nteheiifeU(1065 ft.), or 'dragon's rock', 4-5 mlu. 
above the terrace, was erected by Arnold, Archbishop of Cologne, at 
the beginning of the 12th cant. , bestowed by him on the Cassius 
Monastery at Bonn in 1149, and held as a fief from the latter by the 
counts of the castle. Henry, Count of Draohenfels (d. 1348), fur- 
nished the chapter of the cathedral of Cologne with the stone for its 
construotlon from a quarry which still bears the name of Dombrueh, 
or cathedral quarry. In the Thirty Years' War the half-ruined castle 
was occupied by the Swedes, but was besieged and taken lioja 
them by Duke Ferdinand of Bavaria, Elector of Cologne, who 
completed its destmction. — A Cavern among the vineyards, about

Tbe abbey itaelt was sold and almost entirely removed in the year 
1809. Some of the finest old German pictures In the Rnakotbek at 
Munich were brought from Haisterbach. In 189T a memorial was

Ahrwtiler (340 ft.) is ■ thming little town witli 5100 <Dlia)i., 
Butrouoded by old nails with weU-proservsd gates, and carrying on 
\a active trade in wine. In the middle ages It belonged to the 
Electorate of Cologne, and was repeatedly beEteged during the feud 
between tbe chapter of the cathedral, to which it adhered, and 
the deposed archbishops. In 1646 and 1680 Che town was besieged 
by the French, hy whom in 1689 it was entirely burned with the 
eiceptioD of ten houses. The Qottic Clmrch of St. Lawrtnce, found- 
ed in 1245, dates partly from the 14th and the end of the 15th 
century. — Pleasant walk from the etation to Lantenhofen. Fine 
view from the Calvarienberg (see above), a rooky height '/2M, to the 
9., on the right bank of the Abr, crowned with aFraneiscaii monastery, 
dating from 1678, but occupied since 1838 by a giiU' school managed 
by Drsuline nuns. Another walk may be taken from the Calvarien- 
berg vii the SttinthaUkopf (gooA views) and through the Oeiibach- 
Thal and Btcktnbach-Tkal to [1^/4 hr.) Walporzheim. 

The railway skirts the old walls ot Ahtweller on the S. 

9l/l H. Walporiheim (St. Peler, with garden ; Dtutichtr Kaiier, 
at the station; 81. Joieph ot Wimer-Verein, good wine at all), a place 
(3801nh ah.) mentioned underlhe name ot Watprtdeahovea in a docu- 
ment of 893, and long celebrated for its wine. This village lies at 
the beginning of the narrower part of the Ahr Valley, which is 
well-anited for walkers as far as (_2-2'li hrs.) Altenaht. 

The railway and road now enter a rocky ravine, flanked by Jagged 
and riven cliffs of slate; on the left rushes the Ahr, on the right 
rises an almost perpendicalac black wall of slate-rock, from which a 
single ridge called the 'Buntt KuK projects. At the top is a small 
Inn, which oommands an admirable view , especially by evening 
light, and may be reached in '/j hr. either from Ahrweiler or Wal- 
porzheim. The railway crosses and recrosses the stream. On the 
left bank, adjoining the road, are the ivy-clad ruins of the nnn- 
nery of Maritnthai, near the hamlet ot that name.

atand the tragments of the Saffmbvrg (846 ft.), captured by the 
French Id 1702 and deitioyed by the impetial troops In 1704. The 
railway pusea throogb a tunnel beneath the Saffenbuig, erosges 
the riTOi, and reaches — 

13'/i M. Mayschota (Inn of the Winzer-Vereln, at the station). A 
bridge leads to the village, which lies on the left baok. A path, rom' 
manding beantifal Tiewg, ascends hence to the top of tlie Som (p. 101). 

The railway once more ciossea the Ahr. At the LochmuUt 
(VaM. from Mayaohosa ; Inn, rery fair, B.«:B.2-3, D. 2-2'/j, pens. 
4-5 Jl) both the road and the railway enter a deep cutting through 
theprojeclinggiauwacke cliffs of theOucUey, which may be ascended 
by steps from this point. — We next pass the homleta of Loach and 
Seimtrzhafen , at the latter of which, 1 M. from the Lochmilble, 
pedestrians should ascend a path through the vineyards to the right 
to (1/4 hr.) the Welsse Kieuz (p. 101 ; paths through the -rineyards 
are closed from the end of August till the middle of October). The 
railway crosses the river beyond Laach, but, after ascending a steep 
gradient, retorug to the left banli by means of a bridge, 275 ft. long 
and 56 ft. high, and side by side with the road enters a short tunnel, 
by which the circait of l</gM. described by the valley Is cat off.

and in summer, especially on Sundays, it is often unpleasantly

commands a lovely prospect, both upstream and downstream {another 
good point of view is the Henlei, above the station. The ptettll;-

whose elder branch Conrad, Archbishop of Cologne, the founder of 
the cathedral of Cologne in 1248, was the last scion. The castle,

mining-shafts into the hill. The extensive itratum of Tufa, 50- 
too ft. In thickness, which cavers the floor of the valley and the 
loffer slopes of the hills, is, like the conglomerate stone mentioned 
at p. 77, the result of showers of volcanic matter. When pounded

Rbine and tbe Moselle, so called from a former Tttitonie Lodge 
(^Dtuttchordmehmu i PI. 4), nowoccopiedbythe provincial arcbi*et. 
Upon tbia point, which is now about 12 ft. above the normal watei- 
IstbI, risea the imposing "Konumftiit of £mp. Williiini L, erected 
by the Provinee of tbe Rbine and designed by Brano SchmiU. The 
copper eqaeetrian figure of the emperor, 15 It, in height, accom- 
panied by a Genius [30 ft. high] bearing the laurel- wre&thed im- 
perial crown, is by Emit Hundritscr. The whole la supported by an 
aichitecturalbaiie of great merit. Thlslaoneof themostimpreaslTe

acape in all ditectiona. A spedally flne view of it Is obtained from 
'the gteameri ascending the river. 

The Chnieh of Bt. Cutor, founded in 836, dates in its present 
form chiefly from the end of tbe 12th cent., and was conaecrated in 
1203. It is ■ Romanesque basilica with fonr towers, terminating in 
a semicircular apse adorned with a gallery of smalt columns, and 
presents a pictareaque appearance from the quay. It has recently 
been well reatored. The nave ie roofed with rich Qothio groined 
-vaulting, which wag enbstltated in 1498 for the originally flat ceil- 
ing. To tbe right, in the choir, is the Gothic Uonumcnt of Arch- 
ilihop Kuno con Falkmitein (d. 1388; tee p. 119). 

To the W. of the church atands the CASTOB-BsrNNEN (Br. on 
Plan), erected in 1812 by the last French prefect in commemoi- 
ation of the French campaign against Russia, The Russian general 
St. Priest with exquisite irony added the words : ' Fu ct aj/prouvt

la the middle ages and until the 18th cent., the greater part of 
the town lay on the Moselle ; bat the narrow, crooked streets of 
that period which are still extant present few teatDies of interest. 
The Ftoriru-KiTche [PL 14), of the 12th ceni, with Oolhio choir, hu

eslled Kau/Tiam (PI. 12), built in 1479 as a town-haU and now a 
Echool, and the Schoffenhaui, built in 1530 and Btted up in 1891 as 
a muBeum, containing chiefly Koman and Frankish sntlqnities [open 
free on Son.. 11.30-1 ; at other times on application to the custodian 
of the school). A flight of steps leads to the MoBolIe Quay, afford- 
ing a good view of the pretty oriel window of the Schoffenhans, — 
The Church of Ovr Lady, or Oberpfarr-Klrcht [Pi. 17), floiahed in 
1431, with Romanesque nare and Qotbic clioir, marks the highest 
point of the Roman caatiara. 

The Hoielle Bridge, which leads to Liltzei-Coblenz, was erected 
by Elector Baldwin about 1344, restored in 1440, and widened in 
1884. It commands a flne view of Emp. William's Monument and 
of EhrenbreilBtein. — The lofty lurreted boilding adjoining the 
bridge on the 8.E. is the ancient Burg [PI. 1), or Electoral Palace, 
built in 1376, and recently acqniied by the town for adminiatrstiTe 
offlcea. The entrance is in the Bnig-Striase, on the S. side.

which ends at the old Ubr-Thor, beside the new Hen-Jau-Klnhe. 
— To the left is tbe approach to the Ffftffendorf Bridge over the 
Bhine, built in 1863-64, an elegant atmcture of three iron arches, 
eaoh with a span of 106 yds., commanding a beautiful view (toll 
2 pf.). Originally a railway- bridge, the atruotnre Is now tued only 
for ordinary foot and oarrlage traMc and for the electric tramway

river, between Oberwertb and the E. bank, was oonstrueted by 
Altenloh In 1877^79, and Is 1300 ft, long. It consists of three wide 
brick archea, and of two light and elegant iron arches, eaeh with a

The'FortieM of EbrsDhieitBteiii rises opposite the influi of the 
Uoselle, 385 ft. above the Rhine, on a piBcipttous rock, which is 
esiinected with the neighbouring heights on the N. side only. The 
view embraces the fertile valley of the Rhine from Stolzenfeli to 
Andemaoh, and the volcanic peaks of Che Maiteld and the Eifel 
[p. 102). Far below are the Rhine and Hoselle, and between th«m 
the Emp. William Monument and Che triangular town of Coblenz. — 
The present fortress, built in 1816-26 by Qeneral von Aster, succeeds 
a very ancient stronghold of the Electora of Treves, which was fre- 
quently enlarged in the course of centuries. It played an Important 
part in the Thirty Years' War, and in 1799 it was taken by the 
French after a gallant resistance.

destroyed by the French. Frederick WilliamlV., when crown -prince, 
canted It to be rebuilt in 1836-42 from the designs of Sehinkel, 
Sluler, and Perifua, and embellished in the romantic taste of the

of Mayence, la mentioned in a chaitei as early as 890. Several 
towers recall the former fortiflcationB. Schtoii Martintburg at the 
upper end of the town, containing an intereBting court, onoe ■ 
resideni» of the Electors of Mayence, dates from 1394; the new 
part was built in 1712. The old RMhaus is a noteworthf Ute- 
Gothic half-timbered edifice. The ProUstant Church, at the lower 
erid of the town, was bnilt by Zai« in 1872-75. Oberlahn stein ii a 
buay depfit of theiion-ores yielded by the mlDes on CheLahn [comp. 
p. 212], and possesses a large harbour. It is the steimboat-atatton 
for Ema (p. 212), which may be reached hence either by the main 
line Tii Mi ederlahn stein (p. 113), or by the older line (slow trains 
only) on the left bank of the Lahn. The station is close to the quay. 

On a rooky eminence behind Oberlahnstein rises the plctuiesque 
oastle of Laluuck, mentioned for the first time In 1224, destroyed 
by the French in 1689, and restored since 1860 (viBitois admitted 
Id the owner'a absence). The pentagonal pinnacled tower commands 
a charmiag view, far which the morning light Is most favourable. 
On seeing the inin in 1774 Ooethe composed his eiqniaite 'Qeistes- 
Gruss'. A road and two footpaths ascend to the oastle ; one of the 
paths, destitute of shade, mounts direct from Oberlahnstein, the 
other from the side next the Lahn, beginning opposite the upper, 
end of Niederlahn stein (p. 113). 

About 11/4 U. above Gapellen, between the highroad and the 
Rhine, is the EoniKutnia ('king's seat'), erected in 1376 by the 
Emp. Charles IV. on the site of an andent meeting-place of the 
Electors. At the end of the 18th cent, it had fallen to decay, but In 
1813 it nae rebuilt, partly out of the old materials. The stinotuie 
Is octagonal in shape, somewhat reaembling a pnlpit, 22 ft. In 
diameter, and IS ft. in height. The Electors held their meetings 
on the stone seat on the top. The situation was chosen from its 
proximity to the dominions of the three ecclesiastical Khenish Eleo- 
tars, Rbens belonging to Cologne, Capellen to Treves, and Lahnatein 
to Mayeoce. while the territories of the Electors Palatine began at 
Caub (p. 123). Here many emperors were elected, decrees issued,

with Oberwesel , to his brother Elector Baldwin of TrBves. The

built the caetle, which is BtiU preserved (p. 117). All efforts ot

Connd and Heiorlcb, loiu of the knleht BsyeT van Boppard, the toid 
of Llabenatein, were enamoured of th«lr f»ter-alil«, Ui« bsutiftll Hilde-

joined the crusades. Hildagude now puied her days in the lonely eaalle 
of Liebensleio, brooding over her aid lot, not doubting the aActioB of 
Conrad, but weeping over Ibe un^^ertaint; 0^ his return. Suddenly Conrad 
returned lo Sterrenberg with a level; Qreclan bride, and the oulrafed HUde- 
garde, ntunned by Ibe blow, ehul herself up in the loneliest chamber of 
lier dreary abode, and refiued to see snr one but hct attendant. Late 
one evBuiug . stranger knfghl 
proved lo be the cbival 

leDged Conrad lo aingle 



Heinricb, who, bearing of his brolher^s per' 
his fostar-risler^s wrongs. He accordingly clial. 

'between" them and iosiiled on a rccanclliaUoa, 

^ consented. Hlldegaide then retired to the eon- 

tbe base of the rack an which the castles stand. Con- 



rad's Grecian briAe soon proved faithless, and he, overcome with shai_. 
and remorse, threw bjToself on his genarous brother's breast, eidslming that 
no coosDlalion was now left him bul his friendship. Thus their estrange- 
ment ended, and the brothers Ihenccfortb ILced together in harmony sod 
retirement at Liebenstein, while Slerrenberg was for ever, deserted. 

These oaatleg were held as early aa the 12th cent, u a flet of the 
empire by the knighta of Boland, and in 1317 came into the pos- 
Eession of the Electors of Trfives. Steirenberg, the higher rujn, is 
separated from Liebenstein by a moat and ■ masaive wall, known 
aa the 'Streit-Maiier' (wall of combat) in reference to thp hostile 
meeting of the brothara. The ruins (reBtaurants) are interesting and 
command a fine view of the rocky ravines beneath.

of Katzeneliibogen, whose family became extinct in 1479. It then 
belonged to the Hessian princei, and was destroyed by the French 
in 1806. The present owner has built himself a honse in a bar-

knights of Falkensteln to (he Palatinate in 1277. The building has 
recently been restored. The Earl of Cornwall , who was elected 
King of Qermany In 1257, is said to have become enamoured here

on his w>; to be crowned at Aii-U-Chapelle, the garrison of the 
castle liad the audacity forcibly to detain the vessel of tbe king for 
the parpose of levying toll. In 1321 the castle was taken by the Em- 
peror Lewis the Bavarian from his opponent Frederick the Fair, and 
presented to hie consort Hargaret of Bolland. In 1632 it tell InU tbe

Opposite the Filrstenherg, on the right bank of the WitptT, 
which falls into the Rhine here, stands the rained castle of Vallieli 
[580 ft. above the Rhine), mentioned In 1110. The ragged cliff on 
its W. slope is called the 'DeviCi liaddtr', of which a legend re-

Opposite tha oastle, on > qaartz-iock in the middle of tlie Rhine, 
is sltOBted the XonM Towbti vhicb Is popnluly uii to derive its 
name from tha nell-known legend of the ciaal Archbishop H&tte of 
Hiyenoe (914). Baying MiiBed s aumbar of poor people, nhom he 
eompued to mice bent on deiauring the u)rD, to be bnmed tn ■ 
ham during a famine, he via attacked by mice, vhich tormented 
hiro day and night. Ha sought refuge on this island, but was 
foUowed by lis petseoutora, and derouied alWe. The tower, how- 
ever, wu in reality aieoted In the beginning of the ISth cent, as 
a watch -tower, and the name is derived from the old Qennan 
MOtthvrm (siBenal). In 1856 the luins were again couTerted into 
a kind of watch-tower, for making signals to steamers, which Id 
daioanding the river are required to staehen speed here when other 
vessels are coming up the stream. 

The valley of the Rhine now suddenly expands, and the district 
of the Rheingau, which was onoe in all probability a lake, 1b entered.

■itasted U ibe conflaence of the Sake and Rhine, na known to the 
Bomuis, wlkO erected s caitle here, at the point whence their milltuy 
toadi to Cologne and TriTei diverged. In 70 A.D. a btXtla wu fought 
kt Bingtmn between the Bomsna and the Gaula. In the middle age& 
it »a> a tree town of the empire uid one of the earliest membera of 
the eonfedeTition of KhenUh towns (p. 156). During the Thirty 
Yean' Wai it was repeatedly captured, and in 1089 It was almost 
totally destroyed by the French. Bingen carries on a Urge trade in 
wine, snd its tecent ptoapeilty ia teatiSed by its new irtnter- 
liaiboiu, quays, and embankments. It Is the seat of the Bhenlih 
Technical CoUtgt (900 students') and of an Industrial School. The 
Itte-Oothie Pfarrkireht, of the l5th cent., with a Komanesquo ciypt 
of the 1 1th, haa been modernised. The Gothic font dates from the 
15th oentuiy. 

Above the town, ou the atte of the ancient Roman foitiesi, rises 
tbe castle of Klopp, which was destroyed by the French in 1689, 
but has been tastefully restOTod and extended since 1854. It now 
accommodates the municipal offices. The tower and terrace afford 
a beautiful view. The tower contains a collection of antiquities 
(adm. 20 ft.). The moat ia now laid out as a garden. The Qoeben- 
Strisse, the Schloss-Straase, and the Rochns-Strasse (beyond the 
Hfitel d'Angletene] ascend to it from Che Rhine. Kmp. Henry IV. 
was seized here at Christmas, 1105, by his treacherous son 
(afterwards Heniy V.), who carried him captive to the cutle of 
Bockelheim (p. 170> 

The flneat point in the neighbourhood of Bingen is the *Boel»is- 
berg, with the Kochut-Capellt and the ScKarlachkoff, each about 
'/j-*/4 hr. from the town. The routes thither ate all provided with 
guide-posU. From the oastle of Klopp we may proceed direct vlji 
the Marlahflf-Strasae and the RuperCua - Stiasse. At the top we 
reach the HStet Rochutbtrs (p. 128), with a veranda, commanding 
a flne view, and thenoe we follow the road on the margin of wood 
(or thiough the woods, below, passing a round dovo-cot), which 
leads to the cbapel in 8 min. more. 

The Boohna-Gspells, a chapel on the B. brow of the Roefrntltrg, 
was built in 1677 in memory of the pligoe of 1666, struck by 
lightning and burnt to the ground in 1889, and handsomely rebuilt 
in 1889-91 In a lale-Gotbic stylo from plans by Meckel. At the 
festival of St. Boch (flrst Sunday after 16th Aug.), charmingly de- 
scribed by Goethe, thousands of persons congregate here and celebrate 
flsrtatn solemnities, to which open-air dances, music, and feasting 
form a lively seqnel. — The ffempJer &b, 4 min, toCheN.E. of the 
chapel , commands a fine view over the whole of the Bheingaa

Emp. of Austria as an Imperial fief on Prince Clemens of Metter-

The *VfttioilKl KonnmeiLt on the Ntedervsld, erected in com- 
memoration of the nnanimouB rising of the Gennan people and the 
foundation of the new Qerman emplte In 1870-71 , stands upon a 
projecting spoc ot the hill (980 ft. aboye the sea-leTel; 740 ft. 
•boTS the Rhine), opposite Bingen, and Is conspicaoui tar and 
wide. It was begun In 1877 from the designs otJohamui Schilling 
of Dresden and was inaogaraled with great ceremony in 1883. The 
huge basis is 78 ft. Mgh, while the nobte fignie oC Qermania, with 
the impeiial orown and the lanrel- wreathed sword, sn emblem of 
the unity and strength of the empire, is 33 ft. in height. The prin- 
cipal relief, on the side of the pedestal facing the river, symbolises 
the 'Wacht am Bheln'. It conUins poilraits of King William of 
Tnusla and other German ptioces and generals, together with re- 
presentatives of the troops from the different parte of Germany, 
with the text of the famous song below ; to the right and left are 
allegorical flgnre* of Peace and •War, while below are Rhenns and 
Mosella, the latter as the fntare gnardian of the W. frontier of the 
empire. The Bne reliefs on the sides of the pedestal represent the 
departure and the return of the troops. The total cost of this 
magniflcent monnment amonnted to 1,100,000 Jl (55,0001.). An 
excellent model of it is sbewu In the castodian's house behind

£ltTiIle(p. 142). It has been known for St least 300 years, and was 
a fasblonable watering-plioe in the 17th and ISth oeDturies, but is 
now regarded more as a health-resort and medioiual spa. The water, 
strongly impregnated with iron and carbonic acid, is adapted tor 
internal and ei.temal use, and is especially efflcacious in nervous and 
female complaints. The annual number of visitors is abont5000. 

The two principal springs, the Slahlbrtmnen tn one of the 
Talleys, and the Weinbrunnen in the other, are conneoted by prom- 
enades. The other springs ate used only for bathing. A handsome 
Cttnaat, with a restaurant, a reading-room, etc, was opened in 
1879. Farther up, beyond the pond near the Weinbrunnen, there 
are eitenaive lawn-tennis courts.

by BerdeUi and orounented by Scholl and Barth, — The Kubbb-

1000 yds. long and OYer 60 yds. wide, embellished with trees and 
flowei-beda, and flanked by haudiome bouses, sitenda from the 
station to the Rhine. Among its buildings are the Ofpea of At 
Bettian Bailvray (PI. F. 2), the OfUfOymnaiiiim (Fl. Or, 4), the 
ImperialBank, and the CArijluj-X(rch»(Pl.F, G, 4), built in 1897- 
1902 by Kreyssig, with its conspicnons dome. 

The Bahnfiof-Str. (PI. E, 2), to the right of the RaiaeT-Strisse, 
leads to the small MOnstbb-Fl&tz (PI. E, 2), which oCRDples th« 
site of the Munatei-Thor. The Schiilei-Str., in which Is the Brthaltt

The Qbobbb Bleidhb (PI. E, 2, 3, 4) is tbe principal old street 
In tbe N. put of the town. On tbe S. aide of it (No. 16) is the for- 
mec Sladion'sche Ho/' (1728-33). In s smaU square to the left is 
the Neat Brunnen, sn obelisk with ilTer-goda and Uona beloir. 

On the light, at the E. end of the street, where it enters the 
Sobloas-Plati, is aiB»ChuTehof8t.Ptttr{n.E, i), ereoled in 1756, 
with bold vaalting and fteacoes b; Applaul. — The bairaeka, 
formerly on the M. side of tbe large Sahlost-Piati (PI. F, 4), have 
been pulled down, and the district Is now being remodelled. 

On the E. side of the square rises the former Elector^ Paloee 
(PI. F, 4, 6), ft large red sandstone edifice, begun in 1627 and 
hastily finished in 1678 on a much less grand scale than that orig' 
Inally contemplated. The wing facing tbe Scblose-Plfttz was com- 
pleted in 1754; the main fagade fronts the Rhine. T^ palace is 
now occupied as a musenm ; but daring the next few years, owing 
to the restoration of the building, only a portion of tbe collections 
win be accessible. The most important section of the mnsenm is 
that of the Roman and Qeimanio antiquities , on the gronndfloor. 
On the first floor aie the picture-gallery, the municipal library, and 
part of the Gutenberg Museum^ on the second fioor, the remainder 
of the Gutenberg Musenm and the nataral history colleotione. — 
The Library is open on Mon, Tnes., Thurs., & Frid., 9-1, on Wed. 
& Sat. 9-4 (the reading-room ftom 2 to 5 or 6 also). Tbe Outen- 
herg Muievm (adm. free) is open on Sun., 10-1, Wed. 2-4, and on

('ElBeme Thumi'), and farther ap the river Is the so-called Wooden 
TaiMf ('Bolzthurm'; PI. B, 4), two fragments of the old fortifications, 
dating respectively from the 13th and the 16th century. — In the 
MailandEgasse, 'near the Iron Tower, is the old Church af iht Holy 
Qhost (13th cent.), now a reatanrant (p. 164). 

The centre of the old town of Mayence Is occupied by the 
marliet-plaee, lu which are a fountain erected in 1526 by Elector 
Albeit of Brandeoburg (iBBtoied), and the tmpoalng — 

■Cathedral |;PI. G, 4 ; St. Martin'g). A cathedral is menlionod w 
having esiated at Mayence aa early as 40B, and a new building, 
with a baptistery, was erected by Bishop Sidonlos in the t>th century. 
A Romanosqne church was bnilt under Arebbtihop WiUlgii [975- 
1011^, but it wag burned down on the very eve of Its conaeciation 
in 1009. It wag restored by Abp. Bario in 1036, but was again de- 
stroyed by fire in 1081. On its re-ereotion the bnilding received a 
vaulted roof (see p. iivili). In 1159 the church served as a fortress 
during the struggle between Abp. Arnold and the citizens. The 
upper part was yet again destroyed by flre in H91. Between that 
date and 1243 were erected the W. transept, tlie main choii, the 
octagonal dome, the Memoiie or chapter-house (p. 162), and tho 
ololeters. Gothic side-chspets were added after the dose ot the 
13th cent., and the cloisters were wholly remodelled in 1397-1405. 
The wooden spire of the main W. tower was burned in 1767, and 
was replaced in 1774 by a stone steeple In the Gothic style, by 
J. F. Neumann the Younger of Wiinburg (p. 296). In the French 
period the church was used as a magazine and barracliB, but in 
' 1814 It was repslred and restored to its sacred uses. A thoroagh 
rcgloratlan of the E. part of the building was carried out In 1868-79, 
under the superintendence of Laske, Waiilctn, and Oujrperj. The 
middle tower was rebuilt in the Romanesqne style la 1875, while 
the crypt under the E. choir and the two side-lowers were renewed 
In harmony with the extant remains. 

In consequence of all these vicissitudes the chuich possesses 
great value lu the history ot architecture. In its present form tt 
consists of nave and aisles with chapels, an E. and a W. choir, and 
aW. transept. The groups of towers at theE. andW., especially the 
picturesque W. tower (270 ft.) above the cross, present an imposing 
appearance, somewhat injured, however, by the numerous addi- 
tions. The lower portions of the E. round towers probably belong 
to the building of WE lligis or Bardo. The transept, with Its threa 
huge windows, the W. choir (aboTe which is an equestrian statue 
of St. Martin), and the three W. apses with their rich decoration 
of roond-arched frieze and dwarf-gallnios, show the flamboyant 
forms of the Transition period. All the additions, except the Mem-

tJie muk of aach century in turn. — Oomp. the gionnd-pUn, p. 155. 

The Haih Ebtrahob, which U reached between some of the 
houses in the market-place, lain the N. aisle. The two braze a doors 
were eiecated by order of Archhp. Willigis in 888, as the Ladn 
inaciiptlon on the bordei of the wings records , and are the oldest 
in Germany after those of Ali-la-Chapelle. On the upper paneta 
are inacriptione, engraved in 1135, enumerating the privileges 
granted to the town by Archbishop Adalbert 1., out of gratitude for 
hifl llberatton from the liands of Henry V, in 1163. — There are 
other entrances in the E. ta^de in the Liebfrauen-Platz, with 
inteTeatiDg capitals at the S. portal, and in the S. transept, opening 
from the Leich-Hot. The cathedral is open daily, 8-9 and ISO- 
IS a.m., and 2-4 p.m. The vergec, who liTea in the Le!ch-Hof, 
shows tho Memorie, cloisters, crypt, and St. Qothard's Chapel, at 
other tiroes also on application (fee '/j-l Jt). 

The 'Inibsiob, the vaulting of which is borne by 5S pilUrs, is 
123 yds. long, 50 yds. broad, and 89 ft. high in the uave. The 
slender pillars are separated by very narrow openings, and each 
alternate one is provided with a resaant from which the vaulting 
springs. The W. ohoir, aave, and aisles have been painted dark 
blue and richly decorated, the dome of the W. choir and the nave 
being adorned with paintings. The subjects of the latter are (in the 
dome) scenes ^m Old Testament history referring to the sacrifice 
of Christ, and (in the nave] scenes from the life of Christ. Design- 
ed by Ph. Vtit, they have been executed by flemnonn, Latiruliy, 
aod Seltefoet. TheE. choir retains the red coating applied to it in the 
18th century. In other parts the red sandstone and the grey lime- 
Btone have been restored to light by the removal of the whitewash. 

The most interesting feature of the interior consists in the 
numerous ■Toubstohhs it contains, rangiiig from the t3th to the 
19th cent. (comp. p. xiii). 'We begin to the right of the principal

Emerging from the neit tunnel, we obsece on the left, beyond 
the Nahe [20 min. to the E. of Staudernheim), the ruins of Diii- 
bodenberg, a Benedictine (subsequently Cistercian) abbey named 
after the Irish bishop Dlsibodus (d. abont 700), the first propagator 
of Christianity in this district, whicii was annexed during the Ke- 
formation by the Dukes ofZweibriicken and is now piiTate property. 
Little is left of tba buildings beyond the loundations. The abbey- 
church, consecrated in 1143, was an imposing edlQce with pillars ; 
the laalting of the choir, which was composed of nave and aisles, 
was borne by imbedded columns. The secular portions of the 
monastery are in the Gothic style of the 13th century. Adjoin- 
ing tbs church were the cloisters, and to the right of them the

The Mabebt (Ft. C, 3) lies nearly in the centre of the town. The 
'SoOie* Ham' (PI. b), situated here, a late-Oothic ballding of Che 
15th cent., wasfonnecly theflalAAousand had an open arcade on the 
gronndOoOT. It bears the inscription : 'Ante Romam Treviris stetlt 
annis MCCC, referring' to a medieval tradition that Trftves was 
founded by Trebeta, son of the Assyrian king Ninus. The building 
was taken over by the town in 1900 and U in proceis of restoration. 
An ancient Column in the Platz , supposed to date from 958 , was 
renewed in 1723, and is surmounted with a cross with the Lamb of 
Qod. The Petenbrvnnen, a beantiful Kenaissance fountain, was 
erected by Elector John of Schflnberg in 1595. Behind It rises the 
spire of the SI. Oam/olphs-Kirche. — In the Dietrlch-Str. is the so- 
called Propvgnaculvm , dating from the early Bom&nesque period 
and said to be the oldest domestic building in Germany. 

The Simeons- Stiasse, leading out of the market-place towards 
the N., terminates in the 'Porta Sigra (PI. 0, 3), a well-pre served 
town-gate with lowers of defence, and the Snest of the Roman 
structures at Trives. This magnificent relic, dating from the 3Td 
or 4th cent, of ont era, is 115 (I. long, 75-93 ft. high, and 29 ft. in 
depth. It consists of three stories, with two gateways, 23 ft. in 
height, and is constructed of hi:ge blocks of lias sandstone, blackened 
with age and fastened with iron braces Instead of mortar. 

Tbe Porta Iflgra was a fortlfled citj-gsle, the eiterior af whlcb could 
be Elnsed by a portcnllia and defended by tie two towers. If tie enemy

The CathednJ (Tl. 0, I), the iiiicl«a« of nblcb was probably • 

qiLsdtangulir bieUio erected byibeEmp. ValaitManl. [364-75), 
slthei for t, court of lav oi ag i bapdatery, iB one of the oldest 
chorchas In Oermany. This basilica, whlrb was of Che same breadth 
as tbe present edifice, and extended from the second pillar from the 
W. entrinee to the E. apse, eeems to have been converted Into a 
GhriBtian church during the Koman period. In the centre stood 
foor huge granite columns, connected by archer, some remains of 
which lie In the cloiatet-garden (see below). The church was partly 
destroyed by the Franks, but was restored in the original style by 
Biihop mcetiut C528-66), who held the see from 532 to 561. It 
was afterwards again devastated by the Normans, and restored by 
Archtiiihop Poppo (1016-47) and hia successors, who increased its 
size by an addition of one-thiid at the W. .end, In the style of the 
original Roman ediUce, and also built an apse. The E. apee was 
added by Bishop HlUin (1153-69). Tbe vaulrtng of the nave and 
aisles dates from tbe 13th cent. ; the circular, dome-roofed treas- 
ury was not bnilt till the 17th. — The various periods at which tbe 
structure has been built are ail clearly visible on the M. exterior; 
the Roman work consists of red sandstone and bricks, that ot Arch- 
bishop Poppo is partly of brick and partly of limestone. Several 
Roman arches and Frankish capitals hare also been exposed to 
Tiew in the interior by tbe removal of the stucco.

Tbe *Bonuui PalMe ([Fl. 0,5], entered from the Pronieiiiide 
and also horn the Patut-PIatz, lies at the S.E, coinei of the tovn, 
and forms a picturesque group of ruins, part of which ia 85 ft. high. 
Iq the middle ages the bailding was need alternateiy as a church and 
as a fortress. The rubhish in the interior accumnlated to such an 
extent, that one of the windows wa^ once used as an entrance to the 
town. — Visitors ring at the entrance. 

Tbe best-preserved part of the edlAce ia a Rtclangular Boata, with 
three apses, at the S.E. eod, formerlr lighted b; two rows of arched 
windows, and heated b; channels for hut air, many of which are still 
viiible. To the right and left of this chamber stood two Tomri , one 
of which Is illU extant and commands a flae >iew of the rains and of 
the town (ascent by a sleep spiral staircase). — At the K.W. end, where 
the eioavations are still in progress, larions circn:ar and sqnare rooms 
and anbterranean passages have been bronght to light. — The keeper 
(BO pf.) has also the key of the Porta Nigra (p. 183). 

On a rising ground about 1/4 M. to the E. of the Palace 
ig the *Amphitheatie (PL D, 6) , locally known as the KalkelUr, 
situated among vioeyards. This arena, still in excellent preserv- 
ation , -with a diameter from K. to 8. of 76 yds., and from E. to 
W. of 53 yds., was capable of accommodating 7-8000 spectators. 
(That at Verona bald 20,000 spectators, the Colosseum at Rome 
40-60,000.) The E. half is bnllt Into the rocky side of the hill, while 
tbe W. is raised to tbe same level by artiflclal means. At tbe N. 
and S. ends are gateways , each with three openings, that in the 
centre leading to the arena, and those at the sides le the «eat« for 
■pectaton. There are also two entraneei for the public on tbe W. 
aide. The dens for the wild beasts and tbe chambers for the gladi- 
ators are still traceable adjacent to the arena. The amphitheatre 
was probably built in the reign of Trajan 01 Hadrian. In 306 Con- 
stantine here anllied bis fame by causing several thousand Franks, 
with their leaders Aacarich and Ragais, to be torn to pieces by 
wild beasts; and in 313, a Dumber of captive Brucleri were bar- 
batonsiy sacrificed lor the amusement of the people. — The Amphi- 
theatre affords an excellent view of TrSves by morning-light. 

Adjoining the Kalser-Straase are the Boman Baths (PI. A, 6), 
an Imposing stmcture of the 4th cent. A. D., 660 ft. in length, ex- 
cavated in 1877-86 (adm. !25 pf. ; plan 10 pf.). The principal facade

the deep valley ot the Lieser, the anetent seat (ftrst mentioned 
in 889) ot tbe Counts of Mandeischeid who became extinct in 1780. 
The upper castle now belongs to Coant BrSbl, the lower one to tho 
Eifel Veteln. Handerscheid is a good halting-place for a day or 
two. Fine views from the ConitantintwaidelKn (then and back 
3/l hr.) and the FrUdrlclnplatt (there and back 25 min.). To reach 
tbe aboTe-mentioned BclveJere (36 min.) we take the footpath to 
the left, 250 paces beyond the bridge oier the Lieser, which leads 
np from behind a shrine, and twice crosses the Buchholz road, 
afcer which we follow this road as far as the wood and then diverge 
to the left. 

The most Intereiting volcanic mountain of the Eifel Is the con- 
spieuoDs, three-peaked MosBNBBRe, 1 hr. to tbe W. of Mander- 
BCheid. We first follow the Bettenfetd road, which descends into 
the valley of the KUine Sytl, ero^see tbe stream at the Heidsmuhle 
(Inn), and rapidly re-ascends. We take a path to tbe left at the 
secondbend, which traversesBelda, pasjei the marshy Hintsifmaoi-, 
and then leals to the left to the barren snmmit (shelter-hut built 
of slag). 

The KoBanberg(i720ft.)i8along hUl of lavs extending from 
N. to S., wooded on the K. side, but denuded by volcanic action on 
the W. It has four craters, the lava-walls of which rise fantastically 
to a height of 50 ft. The basalt and slag which form the summit 
have here protruded 250 ft. through the granwacke. The N. crater, 
formerly flUed with water, was drained In 1846 , and now yields 
peat. The huge lava-stream which has issued from an opening in 
tbe S. crater may be traced as far aa the Q'j^ M.) HomgriAen (foot- 
path), where it reaches the SUinc Kyll, and rises in perpendicular 
lava-clitrg 100 ft. in height. The comprehensive view extends as 
far as the Hunsriick on the S. — By following the Horngraben from 
the Mosenberg we may reach the (1 hr.) Manderacheid and Kyll-

Beyond Nassau the railway follows the right bank of the Lahn, 
and is soon carried thtough a aeries of tunnels. Before and beyond 
tbe second , a glimpse is obtained on the right of Burg Langenmt 
(3 M. from Nassau, 1 U. from Obernbof), built in 1244, the ancient 
seat of an Austrian family, the fihenish branch of which became 
extinct In 1603. The watch-tower and external walls are well pre- 
served; within the latter farm-huil dings have been erected. Beyond 
tike castle, on the opposite bank, rises the Kloatei Aniiteis, wjti> its 
oharch of tbe 12th cent, (enlarged in 1359, restored in 1886), and 
other buildings, pictareiquely situated on a wooded emlnenoe. A 
castle of very ancient origin which once stood here was converted 
by the last Connt of Amstein or Amoldsteiu into aPremonstratensian 
monastery in 1208 (suppressed in 1803). It is most easily visited 
from Obernhof (see below). On leaving the station we turn to the 
right, and after 300 paces follow the path to the left, indicated 
by a flnger-post, to (*/« M.) Atnsteln (refreshments at the Kloster- 
Mdhle). A picturesque path leads hence te (41/] M.) Nassau, vi4 
Hollrlch and Bcrf-JVasiou, 

Near (18 M.) Ohemhof are lead and silver mines. The station 
Is on the left bank and the village (Kloster Arnstein Inn) ou the 
right bank of the Lahn. A floe point of view in the vicinity (reach- 
ed in 20 min., by an easy hut shadeless path) is known as the 
Qattht-Puakt, from a visit made (o It by Qoethe in 1814. 

Tbe llae now passes through a long tunnel, beyond which the 
valley contracts. Then a long curve. High up, on the slope of the

FramkfOTt on the Main (300 ft.), with 305,000 inhah. (ineludlng 
29,000 Jews uid a garrison of 2200 eoldiers), focmeily a fiaa town 
of the Empire, lies in a Bpacioas plain bounded by mountBliig, on 
tbe light bank at the nayigable Main. On the left bank of the titer 
lies Sachiaihausen, a suburb connected with Frankfoit by Aye stone 
bridges, and by an iron suspenaion - bridge. Id a commeroial and 
still more in a flnanoial point of view, Frankfort is one of the moat 
important cities in Germany. The old part of the town conslsta of 
narrow andDn«ttracttTe streets, but the Zeil, the Hene Hainzer-Str., 
Kataer-8ti., Frieden-Str., We., boast of many handsome modern 
buildings. The town is surrounded by 'Anlngai , or publio groDDds, 
laid out on the site of the fortifications remored In 1806-12. Beyond 
these are suburban streets extending to Bomheiin on the N.E. and 
BockenhtlTtt on the M.W. The most fashionable quarter Is the West 
End, between the Taonas Promenades, the Bockenbelm High Road, 
and the West-En d-Platz. The Industrial Interests are mainly con- 
i^entrated in the S.W. part, beyond the GalluBwartB (PI, A, 4, 5), 
The air of wealth and impoitanoe which pervadee the city affords an 
indication of the success and eitent of its commereial relationa.

The *CentraI BailwKf Btation (PI. B, 4, 5}, ■ Uige and band- 
some bnUding by Eggeit and Frantz (1883-88), is ona of tbe finest 
and moat couvenient Etatians on the Contiuent. It is richly adorned 
with allegotleal aculptnrea (Genius of Steam, EleetricUy, Agileultuie, 
luduatry, ete.) and cost about 1,650, CNXI^ Its eTectloo, and the le- 
moral of the Weatein Stations outside the Taunus-Thoi, have com- 
pletely ebanged the appeaiance ot the 9.W. pait of tbe town. The 
principal approach to the loner town Itom this aide 1» the ImpoElng 
JUiBBK-SrausB (PI. B, 0, D, 4). At tbe point where this gtieet 
crosses tbe Gallua Promenade (Pi. C, 4) are a aock Tawer and (to 
the ligbl) the Nem ThratTt (p. 234]. Tbe etreet then leads via the 
Kaiser-Platz, with its tasteful lounl^n, to the Rossua&xt (P). D, 3), 
in the W. half of which rises ibe Mtmwnent of Qutmberg, erected in 
1858, a fine group on a targe sandstone pedestal, designed by Ed. von 
der Launlti. Tbe central figure with the types In tbe left band Is 
Qulenberg, on hla right Fust, on bis left SchSffer. On the frieze 
are porlralc - heads of fourteen celebrated printers, with Caiton 
among them. In tbe four niches beneath are the arms of the four 
towns where printing was first practised, Mayence,Franl[fort,TenlGe, 
and 3traBsburg. Round the baae are figures representing Theology, 
Poetry, Natural Science, and Industry. 

Tbe GoaTSB-PLATz (PI. D, 3), which adjoins the Rosamartt on 
the N., is embellished with Schwanthaler's MonumaU of Qoetht, 
erected in 1844, twelve years after the poet's death. The reliefs on 
the pedestal In front are allegorical; on the sides are figures from 
Goethe's poems. — On the left is the Freneh Rtformtd Oiureh of 1 792 
(French service on Sun. at 9.30, Ensllsb at 11.30 a.m. and 3. SO 
p.m.). — Farther on, in the Tbeater-Platz (PI. D, 3), rUes tbe Old 
Theatre (erected In 1782), which it it now proposed to pull down. 

Adjoining the Rossmarkt on the 14. E. side Is the Scuillbb- 
Platz (P1.D,3}, with the BuupttcocAf, built as a guard-bouse in 
1T29 but no lonjer used as such, and t. Statue of SchilUr In bronze,

The picturesque network of streets In the Old Town affords a 
good Idea of the otiglnal Frankfort, though some of them bate now 
been cleared away to make room for new thocoagbfaces. 

At Orosse Hlrschgraben 23 Is the *Ooethe Home (PI. D, 4), whete 
the poet was bom (28th August, 1749) and spent bis boyhood (open 
on week-days 8-1 & 3-6, on Sun. and holidays 10-1 ; adm. 1 Jl'). 
Tbe house was purchased by the 'Dtulscke Boehstiff in 1863, and

Litrarp of the Deutsche Uochstift (p. 326) , a specialiied collecUon of tlie

We follow the Hlrechpaben towards the S. to the Mint (Pt. D, 4], 
and then proceed to the left through the new Bethmann-Str, and 
between the still unflnfghed additions to the Romei (eee below), to 
the PiDLB-PLiTK fPl. E, 4), with the Church of St. Paul {boU to 
the light), a rotnnda bnjlt In 1833, where the Genuui pailiament 
of 1848-49 held its oieetlnKB. 

TheI{e>iB^E£Q(Fl. E,4), ot market- place in front of the Bomer, 
which down to the end of last century no Jew was permitted to enter 
(comp. p. 232), is the centre of tbe Old Town and was the scene of 
those public rejoicings after tbe election of an emperor which Goethe 
so graphically describes in his aatobiogiaphy. The Juslilia Fountain 
in the centre, erected in 1&43, and adorned witb a atone figure of 
JnaticeinlGll, was completely renewed in 18&T and fuiniahedwith 
a dgare in bronze. Wbile the coronation banquet was being held In 
the KEtmer this fountain ran for 11/j hr. with red and white wine. 

The ■Bimer (PI. E, 1) is the name now applied to the Tovn 
Mail, which consists ot a gronp of twelve separate old houses and 
TBrions large new buildings between the R5meiberg, the Bomei^Bsse, 
the Buohgasae, and the Barf&ssergasae (open daily 6-7, 50 pf. ; Mon. 
£ Wed. iO-i. tree). Three of Uie houses In the Romerberg were 
supplied In 1896-B8 with new late-Qotblc fa^adea, with lofty gables, 
from the plans of M. Meeliel. These are the ao-called Att-Limpury, 
at the comer of the Umpurgergasae, the seat In the 17th cent, ot tbe 
influential patrician giilld of that name; the Bout lumRdtner, prop- 
erly so-called, fitted up In 1405, along with the 'Goldener Scbwan' 
behind it, sa a town-hall, with large halls on the groundfloor; and 
the Hmu Lotwetwtein. The Haua Ftauetuttin (r.), formerly the head- 
quarters ef another patrldan sadety, has a p^ted fa^de in the 
taste ot the 18th century, Tbe Salihatii, at the corner ot the Wedel- 
guse, has rnstica pillars and fine iron scieena; the end-fafade is 
carved in wood. The ffaui Warwbach, Wedelgaase 3, Is a character- 
istic timber structure of the IGtb cent., with a small and pictnresqae 
court i It was restored in 1838-90. The fafade of the Goldentr Schvan 
dates from 1731. Beyond the court, in the Limpuigergasse, is the 
Haas aitberberg, restored In 1898.

palace of that name ('cauls regta'}, which was built by Oharlemagne 
and renewed by Loula the Fioua in 822 (comp. p. 224). The palace 
was mortgagedby the emperors in the 14th cent., and waatrequently 
altered, particularly In the 18th and 19th centuries, so that no ex- 
ternal trsae of the original edifice dow remains. The only old part 
is the Bomanesque chapel (now a prliste room).

in 12S9, is the oldest church in the city. The short Gothic nave and 
aisle) date from the rebuilding in 1235-39, the choir «as erected in 
1315-38, and the unusnaliy long transept in 1346-63. The cloisters 
were added in 1348-1477 and tbe tower In 1415. The Wahlkapelle

finished in 1512, and now 312ft. high, was flniihed from the designs 
of the architect Hani von Ingtlnhtim (1483), which had been dis-

the band-etand. The Stalilbrunncn and the Luttenqueltt are leas 
saline than the EUsabethbrunnen, but are richer in iron, eapedally 
the ilrat-named. The Kaiierbmnnai and the Lvdvilgibrunnea are 
naed chiefly for bathing. Near the laatia the large •X'oi«er-ff MSefcn- 
Bad, bnilt by L. Jacabi and opened in 1890 (bath-houts T-1 and 
4-6, San. 8-12). 

At the W. end of the town (we ascend the Lulien-Slraaae and 
Schu^ssse and turn to the left through the Herrengasse) rises the 
BtUoaa, which was erected, partly of atone from the Saalburg, by 
Landgrave Frederick U. In 1680-85, was reboUt in 1830-40, and 
was fiUed up in 1866 far the use of the royal family of Piussia. 
Above a gateway In the upper court is the bout half of an equestrian 
statue, and opposite to it a bust of the landgrave, who, nnder the 
leadership of the Oreat Elector, decided the victory of the Branden- 
bargers over the Swedes at Fehibellln In 1675 by the spirited charge 
of bis cavalry. In the H.E. corner is a Roman porUco from Bran- 
weiler (p. 16). The Wtiste Thurm, which rises here to a height of 
188 ft., ia a relic of the old castle of Honberg (14th cent.) and

Hetdtlberg, with lO.^OO inhsb. (15,000 Sam. Caih.), is Eitn&led 
on the Ntdtar, at the point where tlist river debouches froia the 
OdeniTsld Id the pUio of the Rhine Few towns can vie with it in 
the beautf of its enrirons uad its historioal interest. Oonnd of 
'Hohenstaafen, who bec&me CoOnt Palatine of the Rhine in 1155, 
Bsleoted the old castle of Heidelberg i,e hts principal residence, and 
under blm and his aacee»aais the insign^cant little place soen 
beoame a tovn of considerable importance. It contlnaed to be tbe 
capital of the Palatinate for nearly flie centuries, until the Elector 
Charles Philip in 1T21, owing to eccleslastioal differeuDes with tbe 
Protestant citizens, transferred his seat (a Mannheim. Since 1602 
Heidelberg has belonged to the giand-ducbf of Baden. 

The old town of Heidelberg is squeezed .in between tbe castle- 
falli and the Neckar, and oonsists mainly of tbe so-called Haupt- 
Strasae, a street abont I'/i U. long. The never residential quarters 
are built on the W, slope of the Geisberg sod In the valley, partly 
In the district of Bcrghtim, which, like Nenenheim (p. 273), dates 
back to the Boman period. In this quarter are the Ralivray Station 
and the Foil # Telteraph Office (PI. 9), opposite each other. On the 
river are several lUedieal Irutitutti and the Botanital Oardtn of the 
University, and lower down the river are factories. 

From the Railway Station we may approach the Haupt-Struse 
via the Bismarck Sonten (with a marble bnst of tbe Chancellor by 
Donndorf),whlcheitends to the new bridge (p. 372); or we may torn 
to the right aud follow the LBOFOLD-STRAaaB, with the Ani^ob, or 
public promenade, which runs along the 8. side of the old town all 
the way to the castle. In front of the Victoria Hotel is a fountain 
with a hurt of the local poet K. 0. NadUr (d. 1849). Near the centra 
of the Anlage, and near the CAcmiooI Laboratory (PL 1). is a Statue 
of the Bavariim Field Marshal Prmte Carl von Wrede (PI. 2 ; 1T6T- 
1^8) by Bnigger, erected in 1860 by Lewis I,, King of Bavaria. 

Near the E. end of the Anlage, on the left, la the Protestant 
ChOTOh of Bt. FetM (PI. 3), built at the end of the 15th cent. 
and restored in 1673, with a flue open-woik Gothic tower and eevetal 
monuments. — Opposite, on the other side of the railway, is the 
KUngenthoT (see p. 272], near which is a bnst of Karl Melt (d. 1877), 
founder of the Qennan volunteer flre-brigade system. From thin 
point the street known as the 'Schloiaberg' asceuds to the entrance 
of the SohlosB'Garteu at the EUsabeth-Pforte (see pp. 268, 269). 

Tnming to the left at tbe oholr of St. Peter's Church, we reach 
the Luowiob-Plati. with the nniveriity BuUding$ (Pi. 4), erected 
In 1711-16. An E^UMlrion Statue of Emperor William I., by 
Donndoif, waa unveiled here in 1901.

stormy ttmes of the Thirty Years' War and the devastation of the

The Jeniilen-£IreA< (PI. ?], dating &om the beginning of the

In the Mabkii' Place (380 a) rises the Qothic HeiliK-Qeiat- 
klTOha (PI. 8i sacristan, Apothekergasse 16), erected at the begin- 
ning of tbe l&th cent, nnder Coont Palatine Rapert III. In 1705 the 
nave was separated from the choir b; a wall, in order that the Roman 
Catholics might worship in the latter (now used by the 'Old Catho- 
lics'), while the Protestants retained the nave. The choir contains 
the tomb of King Rupert (see p. 268) and bis wife Elizabeth, sister 
of the fttst Elector of Brandenburg. — Opposite the church, to 
the 8., is the mttl «im Rlttet (PI. k), erected in 1592 in the style 
of the Otto Helnrlchs-Bau (p. 269), almost the only honse which 
escaped destroction in 1693T — C^poslte the choir, on the E. side 
of the market-place, is tbe KulUous (1703). containing a new hall 
adorned with paiDtinge by Llndenschmit (1886)- — A tew paces to

The last of the aide-streela to tbe right of the Market Place Is 
the ObtTbadgaaK, at the upper end of which begins the Sohloss- 
SmasBi; [p. 268], leading to tbe ca;tlc. — The station of the Cablb

(f. 270). A [oatpBth diverges to the left from the Buigweg, leading 
along the Friesenbeig. — A founh route to the caatle is to take 
the tramway to tbaE. end of the town near the Curb- Ilor (built in 
1776-81), and thence aaceod the Frietmberg (to the right) dd foot, 
prooeeding at the top either to the left by the Karmeiiter-WlildGhen, 
or to the right along the castle-hill. 

The **Cutle (640 Ft.], situated on the 'Jettenbahl', a vooaed 
spur of the KSnigstuhl, may possibly have been founded by Conrad 
of Sohenttiaiftn (d. 1195; see p. 366), while its history can b« 
traced with certainty to the time of Count Palatbu Budolph I. 
(1294-1319). A more imposing building was erected by £ti]»rl i/i. 
(1398-1410), who waa elected Roman king at Rhene in 1400. The 
castle was then enlarged and strongly fortified by the electors Frtd- 
eriek I. 'the Victorious' (1449-76), and Letoi. V. (1508-44). The 
palatial parte of the edifice were afterwards erected by the electois 
of the 16th and ITtb cent., particularly Otko Henry (1656-59), 
Frederick IV. (1583-1610), and FrtderUdt V. (1610-21), King of 
Bohemia (husband of Elizabeth -^, daaghter of James I. ofEngUad). 
In 1622, when Heidelberg was taken by Tilly during the Thirty 
Years' War, the caatle escaped almost uainjaied. It wia aftewatda 
restored by CAortn L<ui> (1632-80). After the death of Ciarlu, the 
last Proiestwit Elector (in 1685), Louis XIV. preferred a claim to 
the Palatinate, and began the cruel and destroctiTe »ar which in- 
volved the Castle of Heidelberg and so many others In one common 
luln. On 24th Oct., 16B8, the town and castle capitulated to Count 
Milac, the French general, who spent the fellowing winter here. 
On the approach of the German armies, however, he determined to 
evacuate the place, and on 2nd March, 1689, he caused the whole 
of the fortifications to be blown up, the palace to be bnmed down, 
and part of the town to be set on fire. Those parts of the csElle and 
town which escaped the French on this occasion were destroyed by 
tham tour years afterwards. The Electors CharUiPhiiip (1716-42), 
and Charles Thtodort (1742-99) made some attempts to render the 
cistle once more habitable; bnt in 1764 It was struck by lightning 
and finally reduced to the ruluous condition In whlcli we see it at 
present. Farther decay Is prevented by careful preservation and 
(where necessary) restoration, and visitors may help this good oanse 
by Joining the Beidelherger Schloiivertin {s-zinnti subscription 3 .#). 

From the terminus of the funicular railway (p. 265), at the top 
of the SchlosB-Strasse (p, 267), we pass through the W. entrance of 
the Castle (comp. the Plan; guide superfluous) into the SoBXOSs-

tiog on the coart, aa the external walls seired chiefly foi pnrpoeea 
of defence. The iTiegolar grouping of the buildings repeals at once 
the lack ot any ayatematie plan In tbeir constmctton. This, however, 
la directly leEponalble for the pictnieaqnenees of the general effect, 
which ie farther enhanced by the clinging Ivy and the verdant trees. 
The two most Interesting buildings aie the OttO'Helnrtchs'Ban, on

Neokai eandstone, with scolptntes and details In yellovlsb sand-

The •Otlo-Heinricfti-Bou, erected in 1656, the finest example 
of the Qerman early-Renaissance style, rises in three stories, partly 
of the Ionic and partly of the Godntblan order, with a snong em- 
phasiB on the horizontal lines. The lower story, with the Kaisersaal 
to the left and the Elector's Rooms to the right. Is of considerable 
elevatton. It Is at present fitted up for the exhibition mentioned at 
p. 271. rheCwo upper stories, the first containing the large dlnlng- 
hall, are each not more than half ae blgh. The top ends tn two small 
gables. The whole faf ade Is richly adorned with beantiful scolptnres, 
all recently restored. The cornice of the *Fortal, to which a double 
flight of steps asoends, la supported by Caryatides. Above it is the 
bust of the founder, the Elector Otho Henry, with armorial hearings 
and inscription. In the niches of the facade are a number of statues, 
all having a symbolical meaning after the fashion of the Benaisaanee. 
In the four lower niches are Joshua, Samson, Hercules, and David, 
the representativee of force and courage, the foandations on which 
a princely house rests; in the middle niches, allegorical flgurea 
of Strength, Justice, Faith, Charity, and Hope, the virtues whtch 
adorn a princely family ; in the upper niches, Saturn, Hars, Venus, 
Mercury, Diana, Apollo, and Jupiter, or the seven gods of the 
planets, symbolising the higher powers, who rule the destinies of 
all. In the window-arches are medallion-heads of eminent men 
of antiquity. The plastic ornamentation of this beautiful bailding 
was executed first under the superintendence of Matter Antant, of 
whom we know nothing fuithei, and afterwards l^from 1558 on) by 
AUxamUr Colin of Malioes (b. 1536), who, however, went to Inns- 
brack In 1562 to work on the Monument of Emp. Maximilian.

Adjoining the Friedrichs-Bau on tha left is the BD-oiUedBmul-

simple Gothic structure erected by Rupert III., the upper part re- 
built by Lewis Y. The imperial eagle with the arms of the Palati- 
nate recall tbe electiou of Rupert to the sceptre of the Roman 
kingdom. Over the entrance is a garland of S^e roses borne by two 
angels; the half-open pair of eompssses is a sign that tha building 
Is commended to the care of the Holy Virgin.

detached and fell in an aubroken mua into the moat, where it etill 
remains. The tower ia 93 tt. in diameter, the walls 21 ft. thick; 
beneath it arei long caeemated passages. It was neat this spot that

On leavini the station we descend the sTenae tn ■ ittalght direc-

&nd go tbrongh an archway below one of the streets. We then 
ascend, skirting the medisral wall, to the (10-12 min.) rains of 
the once tamons Impertal fortress of Landakran, which was barned 
down by the French in 1689. It wa« erected in Che reign of the 
Emp. Lothalre, and restored by Emp. Rupert, who died hete in 
1410. It commands a magnificent view o( Oppeohelm and the

on the site of an older church, partly destroyed tn 1689, and thor- 
oughly restored in 1878-89 from the designs of the late architect 
Schmidt of Vienna. The E. part of the church forms a crudfonn 
edifice with a tower over the crossing and two W. towers. The W. 
choii (abbey - chnroh), which was consecrated in 1439, is now un- 
naed and shut off by a screen. The nindows contain beaatlfiil tra- 
cery ; most of the stained glass is modem. The duatered eolamns 
wlUi their delicate capitals should also be noticed. There are nu- 
meioas mouumenta of the Dalberg, SlcUngen, and othet fuollles. 
The details of the exterior repay a careful study. The iocristan 
lives on an upper |aoor to tbe left of the steps at the principal S.

(^aptl (charnel-house). 

In front of the S. podal of tbe church Is the market-place, with 
a War Monument for 1870-71 ; the monument Incorporates a column

(consecrated in 1110); ^e remainder of the bnilding vaa consecrated 
in 1181. The W. choir and towers are under restorttlon, while the 
dome over the cross has been rebuilt. The S. portal, richly adorned 
with Bcnlptarei of Scriptural anbjects and illeBorical flgnrea of the 
Chnrch and the Synagogae, was re-erected in tbe Gothic style about 
the end of the 13th century. Vith its four tlendei round towers,

Tbe ancient Chdbcktabd (^Pt. D, 3) is now a promenade, where 
a military band plays on summer-eTenings, Opposite tbe N.E. 
eomer of the church is the Domnapf, or cathedral bowl, a large 
vessel of sandstone, once marking the boundary between tbe episcopal 
and civic Jarlsdictlan. Every new bishop was obliged, after binding 
himself to respect the liberties of the town, to Oil the Napf with 
wine, which was then dronk to his health by the townspeople. Tbe 
fragments of the 'Mount of Olivet', to the S. of the cathedral, con- 
atructed in 1511, are tbe sole remains of the cloisters, which were 
built in 1437-44 and destroyed at the end of the 18th century. — 
Among the trees to tbe S.E. of the choir rises the Heiden-ThiiTmcken 
(Heathens' Tower; PI. E, 3), the Bubstrnctnre of which may be of 
Roman origin. It belonged to the town-wall built in 1080 by Bishop 
Rudger. — A good view of the cathedral-choir is obtained from the 
bank of the Rhine, below the bridge- of-boats. 

The devastations of the French have left few notable buildings 
of antiquity at Speyer. An unsightly wall by tbe Protestant church 
preserves the name of the ancient Rilscher (PI. 9 ; 0, D, 3), an Im- 
perial palace where the diets were held. The 'Judenbad', in a smalt

From Annweiler [p. 209) a vialt may be made to the picturesque

post) and then akirt the hollov to (25 min.] the stone crosa on the 
saddle to the N. of the Rehberg. Thence thejr descend to (20 min.) 
the highroad, to the N. of Volkecaweiier, 

The ■Lindelbrnnnei SchloM (1445 ft,), tbe nilna of a oaatle 
of the Counts of Leinlngen, stands on an Isolated hill iffoiding 
an nnimpeded view in all direetiona. At the foot of the hill is the 
Inn Ziim Sddotschm. 

About 2M.frDni tbe LlndelbinnnerForsthaas lies VoTdtTineidtn-

baeh (Hfit. BetwartBteln, R, IV4 Jl. fair), nndei the shadow of the 
castle of BtTwarltltin or Barbtlattin, recently rebnilt. Near the 
Utter village we join the highroad to Dahn viS Bneetibeig, which 
we follow until we reach a flngerpoEt on the left, indicating tbe 
path to (3Vi M.) the picturesque Drachtnfels, which commands a 
fine view of Sub loss Dahn [see below) and the caetellated rooks of this 
district. We descend on tbe E. side and ascend again 10 BuierUerg 
(Znm Schloaschen), 3 M. from Erlenbacb and 3^4 M. from Dsbn. 
Hence «e proceed, either Ti&Scftindiarrff 01 into theC/jbr.) tau((r-

MiihU and to (I'/s hr. from tbe DrachenfeU) the ruins of Sdtloii 
Dahn (1110 ft.^ locally called the Etfweiier BcMou. The steps and 
passages are partly hewn in the solid rock. The top commands a 
Btrlktug view of the imposing and grotesque saudstone rocks around. 
— About I'/jM. to the W. lies the pletnreaqne little town of Dahn 
(Pfals Inn , very fair], whence diligences ply foar times daily to 
(5M.) HinterweideDthal-Kaltenbanh (p. 300) and once daily to 
Beigxabern and Weiesenburg (p. 291). 

Those who do not wish to visit tbe town of Dahn return from 
Soblosa Dahn to (he highroad, and descend to the S. through the 
Lauter-Thal to (3 M.) BruchwiiUr. On the left is tbe grotesqns 
cliff known »a the FladcTutiin. One mile beyond Bruchweiler tbe 
Lauter-Tbal is quitted by a read leading to the right to (1 M.) 
Rumbach (Post, plain), and through the picturesque valley of that 
name to (3*/( M.) Boli6n»n (towe, very fair), a village on tbe Sautr, 
with pleasant environa. — From Rnmbaoh we follow the road to 
Xothweiler and take a path (red marks) to the right at a finger-post, 
whioh leads to tbe (I'/j hr.) Wegelnbnrg. (Or we may reach the

The nOnetar (Fl. D, 3; JlfonoHi^rium Sanctat Mariae Virglnif) 
is the cathedral of the see of Strasaharg, eald to have been foaaded 
about 600 and dedicated from the very first to the Holy Virgin. 
The earliest building of architectural importance wia begun In 1015 
by Btsfiop Wtrnfter con flopjjurji (1001-27) and continued by Biifcop 
WiUiam J. {1038-47). The date of its completion is not known. 
Repeated fires gaie occasion for the erection of a new cbareh, which 
was begun In 1176 under Biihop Conrad I,, mainly on the eilBting 
foundations, but after a design calculated to make it one of the moBt 
considerable Romanesque edifices in Oetmany. While the apse and 
the transept were slowly progressing, Gothic architecture had be- 
come established In France, and of coarse eierclBed an Inflnence on 
all buildings in coarse of construction. This indaence is apparent In 
the articulation of tbe S. tiaoMpt, in the tracery of its roand and 
pointed windows, and in its elaborate portal. The archltectnre of 
the naTO, begun about 1250 (neatly the same time *b the choir of 
Oologne Cathedral) and flnlBbed ia 1275, Is almost exclusively 
Gothic. '(' The name of tbe architect is nnknown. We can gather, 
however, from analogies of style that he had been a diligent student 
of French architeetore (such as that of the chnrob of St. Denis, 
finished In 1331). He was, however, by no means a mere servile 
copyist, but a thoughtful and original master, who pre-eminently 
surpassed hts contemporaries in bis keen sense of symmetry. His 
work nay be characterized as the first Important manifestation of 
the Gothic style on German soil. In 1277 the citizens, Justly pixiud 
of their recently acquired Independence (p. 304), took in hand the 
construction of the W, fajade. It is in connection with the latter 
that we encounter the name of Ervin von SUtribaeh for the first 
time. Of the origin and training of this master we know nothing, 
and even the accuracy of bis surname 1b questioDed. That he was 
a stranger may be Infened^from the discrepancy of the style of bis 
work from that previously exhibited in the minster. Among the et-
