Description

An exterior view of the Altes Haus in Bacharach looking north. The house is a half-timber house with a stone foundation built in 1368. Central to the image is the rounded corner tower. In front of the house are two wood piles. Overgrown ivy masks the west facade and creeps toward the tower.
