Switzerland and the Rhine

Rudesheim and the Rhine Gorge

overcast 62 °F

After a mid night departure, we arrived in Rudesheim Germany for morning tour of the village and a gondola ride to View the Riesling slopes of this famous area in Germany. After that we visited a local winery to sample some of the wonderful white wines of the region. We returned to the ship for a traditional German roasted pork lunch with some of the best sauerkraut that I have had - our chef is German. After lunch we set sail for the Rhine Gorge - a 41 mile section of river upstream from Koblenz - which has been added to the UNESCO world heritage site list due to it's many 12th Century castles. Although it was a little cloudy and blustery on deck, it's a spectacular ride down the river!
