I first visited Rüdesheim on a school trip in 2006, and returned during my first road trip to Germany in 2017. (It is really only 3 years I’ve been routinely driving abroad!?)
Located within the Frankfurt Rhine-Main Metropolitan area on the banks of the Rhine river, the winemaking town is a major tourist town in the area, not too far from Loreley, Bingen and the city of Mainz.
In May 2017 the weather in Germany was warm and Sunny and I spent a lot of time during that holiday sitting in cafés drinking Eisschockolade. Rüdesheim was no different and I felt like I was in Greece at times!
If you want a great viewpoint to go to, try the Seilbahn lift which takes you up to the Niederwald monument. If you’re in to museums, I remember the school trip 14 years ago took me to Siegfried’s Mechanical Museum which was interesting.
