My wife and I took the cable car ride during our visit to Rudesheim. It was part of a Christmas Market tour with Tauck. Beautiful views of the city and the Rhine river. Dress warm if you take this ride during the winter.

We selected the perfect time of year. The views were in full summer colors. Our teen age children even enjoyed the rides and the views, as did my 80 year old mother.
