Rudesheim am Rhein Overview

It's best not to take Rudesheim too seriously.

There are plenty of things to see and do for even the most hardcore traveller – traditional German architecture, several vineyards and museums, the seilbahn (cable car) and the statue of Germania that stands atop the hill overlooking the town.

On the flip side much of the town is like a theme park version of Germany – the main town street is awash with over the top souvenir shops and cliched 'traditional' bars and restaurants which cater for the swarms of tourists which descend on it daily in the summer months.

It's worth visiting (even if many natives are disparaging about it's virtues) just sit back and go with the flow, have a few beers and laugh at how over the top it is.
