CUSTOM CHROME EUROPE PRESS RELEASE - PUBLICATION FREE OF CHARGE KAUB, NEW YEARS EVE 1813/14 World history was made in Kaub on December 31st 1813 when General Bluecher crossed the river in pursuit of Napoleon. Local fishermen shipped the first soldiers to the other shore while Russian Engineers built a ponton bridge under extreme winter conditions. The toll station of Pfalzgrafenstein served as „anchor“ for the bridge and is one of the most scenic toll stations along the river. Kaub itself was „under siege“ often in its history, today home of a fine museum and the quickest ferry over the narrow river. The Pfalzgrafenstein can be visited too, sometime re-enactors fire period rifles and guns from the island. Slate was one of the goods produced and exported from Kaub by ship for a long time!
