I came across the Catholic Church of St. Dionysius on my Town Walk.
The Church looked old, and was, having been built in the 13th century. The oldest part is the late Romanesque tower from the early 13th century. Inside, there is a late 16th century Gothic nave and choir and a wood panelled ceiling. There is also a two story wooden gallery from the 1520's-1629, when the church was temporarily used as a Protestant church.
Between 1987 to 1996 the church was renovated inside and out.
Surrounding the Church, is an old cemetery, and a interesting stone wall.
The Rheintor is the City gate I walked through to access the river Rhine.
Quite a nice looking gate, as it has a half-timber red & white building erected on the gate, which is affectionately called "wobble castle." The Custom House tower, "Rheintor," is in the recessed wall, three stories high and with a pointed arch and ashlar passage..
Rhen's is not a big Village, so it is real easy to walk around the old area.
The village is surrounded by some great Town Wall's and impressive gates, some very old Churches and what I liked best of all, was the half-timbered Houses.
These were old, all shapes, all size's, some looked ready to fall over, other's had nice painting's, some had religious statue's, altogether, it was a favorite little Village of mine!
I walked along the River front and found a large Hotel and thought how nice it would be to stay there, and watch the River traffic!
