2010 Trip to Germany

August 2010, to coincide with their Wine Festival, it was our turn to visit Rudesheim, travelling by coach. The visit commenced with a visit to the Ohlig Sektkeller, where we had a wine tasting.Then we enjoyed a visit to the modern bakery owned by one of the Rudesheim members and a visit to Heidelberg and its spectacular castle.We also visited some of the many ruined castles that are dotted along the Rhine and took in the Romantic Tour using the Seilbahn to the Nederwalddenkmal, the chairlift to Assmanshausen, boat across the Rhein to the Berg Rheinstein and river boat back to Rudesheim. A concert in the grounds of a local convent by the Dorset Youth Orchestra and the traditional party concluded another enjoyable visit.
