Medenscheid is a village of about 180 inhabitants and is one of the districts of Bacharach. It is separate from Bacharach on the high ground and looks down on the Rhine. The village has an annual Rose Festival, with many gardens open to visitors. It is supported by a group of women who's ambition is to present new varieties of roses each year. In the village, several people are artistically active and in occasional exhibitions one can see their works.
Bacharach is on the Rhine River between Bingen and Oberwesel and has three high areas, with altogether 2,300 inhabitants. In summer, the city is heavily frequented by visitors. Above all, they're probably attracted to the "Rhine Romanticism": Winding streets, half-timbered houses, a veritable castle and numerous wine bars.
The castle Stahleck is now a youth hostel. In the vineyards, halfway between St. Peter's Church and castle, stands as a monument of culture and Rhenish High Gothic gem, the Ruin of the former Werner chapel. On Good Friday in 1287 the corpse of a boy named Werner was found in a cave on the Rhine between Bacharach and Rheindiebach. He was from Womrath on the Hunsrück, and was working in Oberwesel.
By the accusation of a maid, his Jewish employer was charged with ritual murder of the boy. The result of the ritual murder accusation was a pogrom that captured the neighboring towns of Bacharach, Oberwesel and Boppard. In these places more than 40 Jewish were killed by the mob. The wave of murders spread out on the Lower Rhine and was the worst pogrom since the first crusade. From this incident, Heinrich Heine was inspired in 1840 to write his unfinished novel "The Rabbi of Bacharach".
The corpse was first laid out in the chapel Kunibert at Bacharach. All sorts of miracles were rumored. The faithful who made pilgrimages to the grave of Werner were granted an indulgence of forty days. More was not possible, because the boy was not officially made sacred. Soon they formed a locally significant, but economically restrained pilgrimage business. Bacharach was one of the most important stopovers for Slavic and Hungarian pilgrims visited on their pilgrimages to Aachen.
With the introduction of the Reformation in 1545 the Werner cult lost its meaning. The relics were taken during the 30 Years War by the Spanish. In 1689 Bacharach was conquered during the War of Palatinate Succession and the French blasted castle Stahleck; falling debris smashed roofs and arches of the Werner chapel.
From 1981 to 1996 the ruin was restored with the help of a citizens' initiative. Today it is regarded not only as an outstanding example of Gothic architecture, but also as a memorial of Christian delusion and guilt towards the Jewish people. This is expressed on the dedication plaque with a prayer by Pope John XXIII.
The Middle Rhine Valley:
The Middle Rhine Valley from Koblenz to Bingen was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2002. "UNESCO World Heritage Upper Middle Rhine Valley Cultural Landscape", is the official title. This approximately 65-kilometer-long section is a cultural landscape of great diversity and beauty. Special events are an annual "Rhine in Flames": from early May to late September on several weekends there are huge pyrotechnic displays in the individual towns from Bingen to Bonn. End of June, "Valley-to-valley" on both sides of the Rhine with a free ride for bikes every weekend in summer there are several vineyards village and farm festivals.
In 2005 the "Rhine Castle trail" was finished, which passes also by our house. It connects the right and left of the Rhine 28 Castles of the World Heritage area of ??Bingen or Rüdesheim to Koblenz. This path is the path with the highest density of castles in Europe.
Of course we should not close the outlook for the region, without naming the elixir of life that holds together the Middle Rhine Valley, the wine. In the Middle Rhine region are grown approximately 600 hectares of vineyards, especially of the classic Riesling, but also Müller-Thurgau, Kerner, Pinot Noir and Dornfelder.
Many sunny days and the wind-sheltered position give these wines their special quality. The Rhine and the prevailing slate act as a natural heat storage. Due to intense tourism in the Middle Rhine Valley, the wine can be widely marketed directly to consumers.
