How I Spent A Meaningful Afternoon At Rudesheim, Germany

It was one cold summer afternoon in June of 2016 when I got a chance to see what is there in a small German town called Rudesheim. I never heard of it before and it was my first time to stepped in the place. As I continue to remember the picturesque views, I realized that it is rich in culture and history.

Above anything else, I was grateful that God brought me here. There is a lot to thank Him for and this is one of the priceless memories I could never let go of. I am certain to go back here but I will be tagging along my whole family so I can enjoy a more relaxing break.

So, friends, I am sharing with you these 3 scenic spots where once I spent a meaningful time with friends and colleagues. Great value was added on to this visit through the informative tour that was arranged for all of us. So I strongly suggest you listen to your guides when they speak, you will surely learn a lot. Bear in mind that whilst it is jaw dropping to see such a wonderland, it is more mind blowing to learn those little secrets behind that made up its history. Oh Germany, how I’d love to go back!

1. DROSSELGASSE

Drosselgasse is a 2 meter wide cobbled street where tiny wine houses were built around the area. Whilst passing through its tiny and narrow alley, I was brought to a time that I never knew existed. Those lovely architectural concepts, including those small houses which were designed to look like castles, were just too beautiful to stare at. Of course, I didn’t miss to strike a pose with these beautiful ladies and gents.

2. SEILBAHN RUDESHEIM

We stopped by for a little story telling from our tour guide. I wasn’t listening much, to be honest, as I was busy taking photos when she began talking about the tales of two lovers. Seilbahn Rudesheim is where an open air cable-car can bring you from Ruedesheim to the Niederwald Monument, passing through the German’s well-known romantic valley.

3. NIEDELWARD MONUMENT

The 38-meter-high monument is a reminder of the French-German War of 1870 and the re-establishment of the German Empire. I never dreamed of reaching this far and visiting a famous history such as the Niedelward Monument which is the biggest in Europe.

According to our guide, there was a letter written by the king before his last breath and after he died it was written in a stone that people can read. And this remains true until this day. From atop the monument, one can also see the river Rhein. This is the middle part which is a connecting from Switzerland down to France, making it the longest river.
