floods might come over night
Floods are a permanent problem in the Rhine-valley and they mostly dont only depend on local rainfall, but also of heavy rainfalls in Switzerland, France and even Austria.
While working as 2.purser on a Rhine-cruiseship for half a year I remember that we had severe floods 3 times and I saw a lot of damage along the river : Camper-wagons and mobilehomes swept away...
On my main photo you will see the marks of the water-level of different years inside the village of Braubach.
There isnt much more for you to do than to listen to the local people, listen to the radio and TV and of course you will always be on the safe side, when staying in a castlehotel, high above the river and its floods !

rocky paths, steep stairs etc.
The old knights of Braubach did not really care a lot for modern security guidelines and so you will still have to walk over the pure rocks at some places and you will have to climb steep steps during the guided tours through Marksburg.
All of that is normally no big problem, but it might be a good idea to leave your high heels in the car or at home and have good walking-shoes and of course also unfortunately :
for handicapped people the interior of Marksburg is absoluetly un-accessible !!!
Leave the kinderwagen and strollers in your car as well !
