Rhine Valley

Rhine Valley is super nice for a short trip. The most beautiful part is between Koblenz and Rüdesheim. I had an one-day trip with the KD ship (Köln Düsseldorfer Deutsche Rheinschiffahrt). Here is the homepage:

You can find time table and ticket information here.

My recommendation: travel with the ship from Koblenz to Assmanshausen. Then take the cable car at Assmanshausen to the top of the mountain to enjoy the panorama view of the valley. After waking about 40 min you reach the Niederwalddenkmal, a huge monument located above Rüdesheim. From here you can take cable car again down to the Rüdesheim, which is famous of winemaking. In the town you should definitely taste a glass of Riesling or grape juice.

Barcelona — Barceloneta Beach

In my eyes, the Barceloneta beach is the most beautiful part of Barcelona. Therefore we were there twice. I would strongly recommend you to book a hotel directly next to beach, which we didn’t do this time, what a pity. 

I bought a pair of rain boots with leopard prints for the beach.

The winter sunshine in Barcelona is just amazing and it makes very difficult to go back to the cold, grey Germany.

Christmas market Aachen — Part 2

The most beautiful Christmas market in Germany and the 2nd best in Europe 🙂

Every year before Christmas the squares and streets round the Cathedral and the Aachen Town Hall are transformed into a paradise of lights and colours, festive sounds and seductive smells. The glorious fair in the Christmas City, which has been erected with great care and sentiment, fascinates both the young and the old. The enormous choice between original, stylish and precious goods makes small and big dreams come true.”

Wikipedia: a traditional German alcoholic drink for which a rum-soaked sugarloaf is set on fire and drips into mulled wine. It is often part of a Christmas tradition. The name translates literally to fire-tongs punch.
