Rudesheim – A Leisurely Afternoon
Frankfurt is a convenient airport for both your arrival and departure, but it is not a city to linger in for long. A guide will meet you at the airport and take you to Rudesheim, which is a charming town that is perched on the Rhine River. You can check in to your hotel and take a leisurely stroll around the town. Nothing will be planned for today, other than reservations at Rudesheim’s best restaurant. Here, you can try Rheinischer Sauerbraten, which is a pot roast marinated in vinegar. This is the most typical old-world dish from the Rhine region.
