    Goats

    by Nathalie_B Written Dec 29, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Spotting 2 goats between the ruins of Werner Chapel and the St. Peter Church was pretty funny. They were trying to communicate in their own language with the passing by tourists, I didn’t understand a word though. I guess the slopes of Bacharach are steep enough for these animals and they feel pretty comfortable there. For a city girl like me it was quite an experience which made me view the creatures as the village’s living attractions

    And they have their own God of wine. The village of Bacharach was named after Roman God of wine – Bacchus - and the locals take it seriously. Nowadays Bacchus is a profession. One person is chosen to be the “God” that helps with promotion of the local wine, dressed like a Roman Caesar with a glass of wine in his hand he is the one who has the knowledge of village history and wine and has the trust of local vintners, otherwise why would they elect him? An elected God - pretty nice tourists’ attraction, don’t you think?
