Guenderodehaus in Oberwesel is a must for 2 good reasons, when you are planning to travel in the Rhine-valley:
1st ) It has one of the very best views including a bend of the Rhine, various castles, the medieval townwalls of Oberwesel and
2nd ) It is a really great restaurant for local food from the Hunsrueck and the Rhine-valley.
And there is even a 3rd good reason, but it will apply only to all fans of the TV-servies "Heimat 3"
This building was the home of the family and you can watch it beeing restored step by step in that movie. The name Guenderodehaus is totally misleading - the house is named that way in the movie, BUT even in the movie you will hear, it is just a rumor that this house had a connection with Carolin von Günderode (1780-1806), who wrote some famous poems.

Directions: You can walk up there within 20 minutes or take the car, they also have a small car-parking there.
