Thursday evening

Adventures on the other side of the river!

Today found us exploring the eastern bank of the Rhine. We started on the high crag of Marksburg Castle, which gave us amazing views of the river in both directions. The children found the castle fascinating,  particularly the Armoury and dungeons!

Afterwards we travelled past the Lorelei rock and mermaid statue to the Niederwalddenkmal monument which stands high above the gorge by Rüdesheim. After lunch we descended through the vineyards to Rüdesheim, and spent time shopping before going to Seigfried's Mechanical Music Museum,  which was breath-taking. Back for dinner,  a little light karaoke and a play in the park before packing for our return tomorrow.
