Rüdesheim am Rhein (to distinguish it from Rüdesheim an der Nahe, a completely different German town), is a beautiful wine-making town on the banks of the Rhine river. It’s so picturesque that it is second only to the Cologne (Köln) Cathedral in the amount of overseas visitors in Germany. For beautiful views like this one, head out on the maze of hiking paths through the vineyards above the town, or take the chairlift to the Niederwald Monument.
