We Wanna Go around the world! In vlog #15, We land in Frankfurt, Germany and find the perfect AirBnB accommodation near the historic wine region of Rüdesheim Am Rhein (Ruedesheim on the Rhine River). This small and historic winemaking town, situated beneath rolling hills lined with vineyards, is home to the famous Drosselgasse. This small and narrow walking street or alley is a major tourist attraction and is lined with cute restaurants, beer gardens, live music and souvenir shops. After strolling the street upwards, we make our way to the local Weinachtsmarkt (Christmas market) in the main square. We sample Bratwurst and Glühwein (mulled wine) before making our way up to the Niederwalddenkmal (Monument) atop the hill.

  1. The significance of the Niederwalddenkmal is huge. Is was created after the first unified german state was build in 1871 (before there was for more than 1000 years the holy Roman empire of German nation, which was only a loose confederation of hunderts of small states and cities). It was triggered by an attack from France, but the unified german states won led by Prussia. So the main figure is the goddess Germania, who symbolizes the German tribes from Roman times on. Beyond is Wilhelm I, King of Prussia, who became Emperor of Germany in 1871 between other German princes. The location is meaningful too. Looking over the thein river on the lands left the Rhein, which were occupied from France for 80 years.

    The world heritage site is not (only) the monument, but the whole rhein valley between Bingen and Koblenz ("oberes Mittelrheintal")
