The weather was very hot, and my mother in law tired from the journey, so we didn’t do the optional excursion here on our first day, which would have taken us to a wine-tasting and to the famous Mechanical Music Museum. But Chris and I enjoyed wandering its picturesque streets on our first visit, and all of us spent an evening here on our second visit, meeting a friend for dinner and a few drinks.
I really liked Rüdesheim, despite its touristy nature. The highlights included the sympathetically restored church of St Jakobus in the main square, the picturesque half-timbered houses with traditionally painted walls, and the unusual and photogenic signs.
We also, like every tourist here, took a walk along the famous Drosselgasse, a 144-metre-long narrow cobblestone street which dates back to the 15th century. Lined with restaurants and bars, it is very busy and touristy, but manages to retain its character nevertheless.
With more time I would like to have taken the chair lift to the Niederwalddenkmal for the views of the town and river below, and for the cooler air we would almost certainly have found there. But instead we found that pleasant air, and lovely views, in the riverside park where we enjoyed a glass of local wine from a stall and watched the sky darken and floodlights pick out the beautiful chapel, the Rochuskapelle, on the opposite bank of the Rhine.
