Prague to Paris_Rudesheim


Rüdesheim is a winemaking town in the Rhine Gorge and part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. It lies in the Rheingau-Taunus-Kreis district in the Regierungsbezirk of Darmstadt in Hesse, Germany at the foot of the Niederwald on the southern approach to the Lorelei.

The Niederwald is a broad hill on the right bank of the Rhine, between that river and the Wisper, opposite Bingen am Rhein. The hill forms the southwestern apex of the Taunus range. Its summit is clothed with dense forests of oak and beech. Its southern and western sides, which descend sharply to Rüdesheim am Rhein and Assmannshausen on the Rhine, are covered with vineyards, and produce some of the finest wines of the district.

The Niederwalddenkmal is a monument located on the summit, constructed to commemorate the foundation of the German Empire after the end of Franco-Prussian War and represents the union of all Germans.
