We leave Rüdesheim with a bit of a melancholy feeling. Through the Rheinhessen district, known for its delicious Rhine wine, we now set course for Speyer. The cityscape of this old imperial city is determined by the ancient Romanesque cathedral, which is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. A visit to the Technical Museum is certainly very interesting.
