Neuenburg Castle (Schloss Neuenburg), located in the wine-growing area of Saale-Unstrut, accommodates a wine museum. I took this photo while enjoying a boat trip on the Unstrut River.
The steamboat ‘Fröhliche Dörte’, built in 1888, brought us along the Unstrut River from Freyburg to Naumburg. The cruise led partly through a landscape conservation area. A few months later, I learned these rides were no longer available. What a pity!
In the historic sparkling wine cellars of the Rotkäppchen winery in Freyburg (Unstrut), there is a huge wine cask for the cuvée. The barrel was built in 1897 and has a capacity of 120,000 litres.
In the splendid staircase well of the administration building, a piece of cork oak (quercus suber) is displayed. So, people joining a guided tour through the historic sparkling wine cellars of the Rotkäppchen winery get an impression from which tree the sparkling wine corks are made.
