Having a Break at Schloss Vollrads

Nowadays, Schloss Vollrads is owned by the bank. They rented out one of the buildings for a restaurant and then there is also still the winery. The rest of the castle can be rented for celebrations or other events.

This photo is from the inside courtyard of Schloss Vollrads (right next to the lake with the tower). The building ahead hosts the "Vinothek" of the winery which is open during the day for wine tasting. They also have tables outside and offer small snacks.

Lovely looking place to relax, but the shot does not work for me. Maybe if you crop tighter or make it monochrome.

The shot above looks a little overblown. Sorry

What snacks would be served with wine tastings in the Rheingau?

It looks very relaxing and peaceful, in the Spring sunshine - certainly not a rowdy crowd of drinkers!

I wish I could sit there drinking a nice wine now instead of working in the stupid office! =)

Sidney - :) that's something I think sometimes as well...

Nicholas - thank you!

Suby - No problem, thanks for the feedback. Just not sure what you mean with the photo above being overblown... Do you mean the image from the template?

Fotoaddict - thank you!

Lagatta - here they serve Flammkuchen (as you mentioned once) and bread rolls with ham and/or cheese.

Mark - thanks! Next time you come to Germany don't miss it then ;).

Moonsoleil - just being outside at all and not in the office sounds very enticing...
