The excellent local wines and the charming and varied scenery have enabled Rüdesheim to develop into a popular holiday destination. You will find numerous restaurants and wine taverns where you can sample the local wine. In the afternoon your cruise takes you through the picturesque wintery landscapes of Germany. The ship docks at Mainz, one of Germany's most historic cities. Mainz's historic market square is also home to the Advent market, a beautiful spectacle of twinking lights.
