Goodbye to Crailsheim and the wonderful hospitality of our relatives. We will miss everyone very much.
Back on the train and off to Bingen on the River Rhein. We had to change trains in Stuttgart to go to Mainz and then in Mainz to Bingen. We are staying in the NH Bingen hotel and conference centre.
We unpacked and walked along the coast road to the Tourist Information Centre. We got a couple of maps about the Rhein and information about transport and renting of bicycles. We also looked at the local bakeries and cafes for our breakfast tomorrow morning.
We walked to the Heilige Geist Hospital
We walked along the River Rhein to find the people ferry to Rudesheim, which is on the other side of the river to Bingen. We found the car ferry so we took that instead. It was 2 Euro each one way.
We walked along the river road and then through some of the main shopping streets. We stopped in the cafe opposite the Christmas Shop for Rudesheimer Kaffee. It cost 6.80 Euro each. The waitress prepared it at the table.
We tried to walk to Assmanshausen but could not find the walking track so we took the ferry back to Bingen.
We chilled out on deck chairs on the river bank and watched the river traffic. Then we stopped at a restaurant for dinner. We sat outside. When the sun started to set they gave us blankets. It was truly blissful and relaxing.
