Leubsdorf on the Rhine
is a small and romantic wine-village (1500 inhabitants) in the northern
Rhineland-Palatinate, situated along the river Rhine.
From the banks of
the Rhine you only can see part of the village; its older part meanders
along gentle hillocks up to the near woods.
Going down the
river you will reach, the "colourful town on the Rhine". Opposite
Leubsdorf, on the left Rhine side you have a view from Bad Breisig to
Remagen as well as on the Ahr valley. Going up the river you will come
to Bad Hönningen with its famous mineral water spring.
most striking points are its gothic church situated on a rock, known as
the "White Church on the Rhine", the "Wasserburg" (water castle), with
four bay-windows, as well as numerous tenderly conserved half-timbered
years ago, the slopes of Leubsdorf were cultivated with vines; today
only some vineyards are left.
Every year, during the first may weekend
parish fair takes place,
because the Leubsdorf people like celebrating festivals and singing.
Not for nothing, at the entrance to the village you will find a
signpost with the inscription "To the merry wine-village".
