Braubach, Germany
Braubach is a municipality in the Rhein-Lahn-Kreis, in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. It is situated on the right bank of the Rhine, approx. 10 km southeast of Koblenz. Braubach has assorted medieval architecture intact, including portions of the town wall, half-timbered buildings, and castle Marksburg on the hill above.

Braubach offers visitors charming narrow streets, old half-timbered houses, and the impressive medieval charm of of an historical town with the beauty of the Rhine. The Marksburg Castle is the only never destroyed hill-top castle on the central Rhine, a landmark and point of attraction at the same time. Numerous remainders of the medieval city walls are still to be found, such as the historical church "Barbarakirche" from the 13th century, whose tower was a corner attachment of the city wall. Also worth seeing the chapel "Martinskapelle" from the 11th Century. Here you also find the last resting place of the famous chamber singer Heinrich Schlusnus (1888-1952), who was born in Braubach.
