Tis is a morning of sailing and enjoying the dramatic scenery of the Rhine Gorge. We are sailing a 35 mile stretch of cliffs and castles from Koblenz to Rüdesheim. We passed the imposing Lorelei cliff and learned of its legend.
In Rüdesheim we chose to first visit Siegfrieds Mechanisches Musikkabinett. It is a marvel of self playing musical instruments spanning four centuries ….. some so elaborate and delicate the the guide only handled them with gloves.
We followed this with a gondola lift ride across the valley to the Nederland monument. This is a beautiful wine making valley.
