This morning, we cruise to Rüdesheim and marvel en route at some of the Rhine Valley’s most famous landmarks including the 130m high Lorelei Rock, named after the Rhine water siren, the legend of whom is as old as time itself, and the Mäuseturm, an ancient customs post now used as a beacon tower for shipping. We have the afternoon free to explore idyllic Rüdesheim, located at the gateway to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Upper Middle Rhine Valley. This picture-book town has a long tradition of wine growing and the town is renowned for its Riesling and Pinot Noir wines. Overlooked by the towers of the ruined Ehrenfels Castle, a stroll along the charming paved Drosselgasse is a must. This famous 144m long lane is lined with traditional taverns, cafés and intimate courtyards where there is live music and dancing every day
