Treis Karden

The drive here was simply put – hell.  Traffic, construction, delays, rain, you name it we had it.  It took us well over an hour longer than it was supposed to take.  However, when we got off the highway we were rewarded with sunshine, beautiful vistas and an amazing road.  This then made the effort of getting here well worth the pain.   Treis Karden is a tiny village of about 5000 people.  According to the latest research findings, Treis had its first documentary mention in 762.  There were holdings at Treis owned by Polish queen Richeza, Count Palatine Ezzo’s daughter, who apparently donated her property in 1051 and 1056 to the Brauweiler Monastery near Cologne.  For a tiny village like this, there is an overwhelming number of historical buildings about 90 in total.

After checking in, having a bit of a rest and a lovely dinner we set out for a bit of a walk to relax and see a bit of this great town.
