July 2012
Lots of vineyards and this large monument indicate we are approaching Rudesheim on the river
Restaurants and wine shops line this well known street,
the Drosselgasse (Thrush Street).
The Niederwald Monument
commemorating the Unification of Germany
can be reached by cablecar

Which also affords a wonderful view of the countryside
When you reach the top
on a clear day
You can see all the way to France
