Photographer's Note

In the small city of Kaub we can find one of the most picturesque castles at the Rhine river, the Zollburg Pfalzgrafenstein. It was erected in 1327 and modified in 1607 and 1755. The castle functioned as a toll-collecting station. It worked in concert with Burg Gutenfels (which can be seen behind) and the fortified town of Kaub on the right side of the river. The castle was known just as "the Pfalz" and it was never conquered or destroyed, withstanding not only wars, but also the natural onslaughts of ice and floods by the river.
