Culture/Sightseeing

Rudesheim am Rhein is a winemaking town situated in the Rhine Gorge and is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is also famous for producing Asbach Uralt brandy. The whole town is really made for tourists with cobbled streets, picturesque buildings, museums, restaurants and gift shops. Various events take place throughout the year such as music and wine festivals.

We stayed in Rudesheim as part of our tour of Germany. Our first choice of hotel was unavailable so we booked Hoteltraube. It is an older building situated in the historic Old Town district. Our friends had a large room and we had a smaller one, but both were quite adequate and there was a lift to the upper floors. A good buffet breakfast in the bright restaurant area was included in the price. The hotel is situated around the corner from the famous Drosselgasse Lane and a five-minute walk from the railway station.

One experience we all enjoyed was the Winzerexpress. This is a land train which takes you on an impressive journey around the streets, alleys and vineyards. During the round trip, you get to hear a lot of interesting facts about the town and get some wonderful views. For 10 Euros, it is great value. We are not as agile these days so this was a good way to get around to see everything (There is also cable car for the more adventurous)

We found the town a friendly place with live music and a delightful all round ambience. One shop which will amaze you is Kathe Wohlfahrt. It is a Christmas store on several floors – you will definitely be spoilt for choice when it comes to taking home a regional souvenir!

So, if you’re doing a trip down the River Rhine then Rudesheim is a must!
