French school during the XIXth century

View of the Pfalzgrafenstein castle, overlooking the Rhine.


The Pfalzgrafenstein castle, built in 1328 by Ludwig the Bavarian was used as a "toll collecting station" until 1866.

The castle was built on the tiny island of Falkenau, also known as Pfalz Island. Located near Kaub, in Germany. Its location naturally favoured its use as a "toll collecting station".
