Adventures by Disney Rhine River Cruise Day Five - Rudesheim
 

Today we are in Rudesheim, Germany which is located in the Rhine Gorge and thus part of a UNESCO World Heritage site. This charming town is set among rolling hills and famous for vineyards, Reisling, biergartens and Siegfreid's Musical Cabinet Museum

Here are the two morning or afternoon activities to choose from:

1. Bike Tour of the Wine Countryside beginning at Eberbach Abbey

2. Weingut Adolf Storzel Wine Tasting

There were also three on-your-own activities for AmaKristina guests:

1. Biking around Rudeshiem (Bikes available onboard)

2. Coffee Tasting at Rudesheimer Schloss

3. Rudesheim Gondola Ride to Neiderwald Monument

We choose to join a group going to Siegfried's Musical Cabinet Museum. When our German guide greeted us at the door to the museum dressed in authentic 1930's dress, hat and gloves, we knew we were in for a treat. We couldn't wait to peruse the oddly beautiful inventions inside.

 

The assortment of over 350 elaborate musical cabinets, music boxes, giant pianos and unique automated instruments dated from the 18th to 20th century will delight your senses. 


The singing mechanical birds in these gilded cages are reminiscent of the audio-animatronic feathered friends in Disney's Tiki Room.

After our morning of fun at Siegfried's Museum, we leisurely wandered the streets of Rudesheim and enjoyed a hearty lunch at an authentic German Biergarten. 

Next, we rode a gondola high above the vineyards for a birds eye panoramic view of Rudesheim and the Rhine Valley below.

Once you reach the end of your cable car ride, you will be treated to a a beautiful view where you can slow down and smell the roses. Here, you will also find the impressive Niederwald Monument built in 1870 to commemorate the unification of Germany.

Back onboard, we were excited to sail through the Rhine Gorge, a UNESCO protected stretch of German countryside that is home to no less than 30 castles or castle ruins. The following pictures were taken from the sun deck of the AmaKristina.
