(Greetings from the Rhine)
�Wisst ihr, wo die Linde stand?
Jedem Burschen wohlbekannt,
zu Godesberg am Rheine!�
(Do you know where the Linden stands?
Every fellow knows well,
at Godesberg on the Rhine!)
Central images depict: Drachenfels (Dragon�s Rock), a legendary mountain in the Siebengebirge range; and the Cologne Cathedral, one of the world�s largest and most impressive churches.
Text is from a poem �Die Lindenwirtin,� written by Rudolph Baumbach in 1876 and set to music in 1878 by Franz Wilhelm Abt, honoring �nnchen Schumacher (1860-1935), an innkeeper in Bad Godesberg, a village on the Rhine from which Drachenfels may be viewed. Her Linden inn is depicted on the left side above the text. Bonn�s landmark Beethoven Monument appears on the right side.
