RUDESHEIM AM RHEIN
In 1961, Grandma Theresa visited Sankt Goar and Bonn in Germany. She then stayed overnight in Heidelberg. Theresa didn't get the opportunity to visit the fun town of Rudesheim in Germany.
Rudesheim is located on the Rhein River and is a wine making town. My husband and I spent only a few hours in this town in August, but it was well worth our time, We arrived on the shores of Rudesheim in the early evening and did a dinner tour of the town. After boarding a little train, we arrived in the main portion of the Old Town. We, along with our group, walked to Drosselgasse, which is a pedestrian street and the main attraction in Rudesheim. There are a lot of wine taverns and open-air restaurants on this very busy thoroughfare.
We ate dinner with our group at the Rudesheimer Schloss. Our appetizer included sausage, cheese and bread. Then we were served potato soup. Our main course was sauerbrauten, red cabbage sauerkraut, mashed potatoes and applesauce. Our dessert was an apple pastry. Of course, there was a lot of music being played and then a game that involved shots of schnapps!
