One of Marie’s ancestral villages is right out of a storybook which could be entitled, “Most Perfectly-Preserved German Farm Hamlets.”
Rinthe consists of a dozen farms and absolutely nothing else. The scene is right out of the 1700s and most of the farm houses and barns were built in this period and still retain their historic character. The photograph above shows part of the village from a hillside to the north. Those who yearn to experience the rural life of Germany should go to the area of Wittgenstein and stay a few days.
