The Rhein in Flames: July

From July through September, you can find fireworks and celebration along the Rhein River.  Ask around.  Many GK folks have taken Rhein cruises to see the fireworks set off from castles along the ridges lining the river.  It’s stunning.

Here are a couple events along the Rhein and Rursee:

Rhein-In-Flames in Ruedesheim
When:  Beginning on 2 July, winemakers will assemble at the market offering snacks and wine.  The market and different musical events will continue through 5 July.  On Saturday, 3 July at 2300, the fireworks will begin.

Rhein-In-Flames in Bingen
What:  Part of the Rhein-in-Flames event that spans several towns, the ideal way to see this is to take a boat along the Rhein to see the castles seemingly engulfed in flames and the fireworks above them.  Wine booths and food is easy to find and there is live music everywhere.  More ino for Bingen:
