We made it over the Rhine

We woke to a beautiful sunrise. Our room didn’t face east so we took a walk before breakfast.
We packed up and drove to our final destination in Germany, Rüdesheim am Rhine. The cool part was we had to take a ferry to get there. So we literally went “Over the Rhine”.
We checked into our hotel and unfortunately it didn’t have a refrigerator in the room. Necessity is the mother of invention so we improvised, it is a little cold here.
It was off to explore the town, it’s a cute city, although a little touristy, but it’s off season so not too crowded. There are grape vines everywhere, some for wine and some for decorations. Oh, and a lot of places to get a glass.
More on the gondolas tomorrow when we ride them up to the top of the mountain. We stopped at this great place called RheinWeinWelt. The have 160 wines from around the region that you can try. You buy coins and pick whichever wine you want from a machine. You get a little less than an ounce. It was a great way to taste a lot of different wines.
It was off to dinner at a great spot. The food was very tasty and as a bonus they had a live band playing.
Off to our hotel for a night cap and to rest up for a big final day in Germany.
