"take a sight seeing boat ride..." Personal Memories and Impressions Tip by mweber

Favorite thing: take a sight seeing boat ride on the Rhine River. Get off the boat at one of the small villages and have lunch at a gast haus. The beer and food is something you will remember the rest of your life. I know because I did exactly that in 1958 and it is still a vivid memory. I served in the US Army in Germany 1958-1960. Went back 4 times since then.

Fondest memory: I remember the trains, mountains, flowers, lakes, beer, food, music, friendship, the cathedral in Cologne(climbed to the top)the gast hauses and the way the german people enjoy their liesure time. I also have fond memories of the chair lifts at Rudesheim, Assmanshausen and the car ferries at Koblenz, Bingen and Mainz. Germany is right up there at the top of my favorite countries to visit.
