My family is in the liquor business, especially wine. We are looking forward to trying Germany's very excellent wines and understand there are several wineries not far from Schriesheim. I thought I read there was a road with several wineries within a close radius but can't recall where. Does anyone know?
Also, we prefer wines dryer than most reislings and gertz. Any suggestions?
Thanks to all who responded to my transportation question. It helps me very much to decide whether to use public transportation versus rent cars for the week.
Another question, please. Your BAC level of .05 is very low compared to ours and I hear the penalties are stiff. We like to party and our hotel is 2 km. from Schriesheim (on the edge of the forest). If we go into Schriesheim or surrounding towns and have a few drinks, are taxis readily available in these little towns? If so, are they expensive?
Also, do you have any suggestions for fun places to go for the evenings? (Our group ranges in age mostly between 21 and 50. We have one minor with us--16. Can she be in the bars/clubs with us?
We are traveling from U.S. to Schriesheim end of July for family reunion. 17 in our group. If we don't rent (several) cars, we do we get from Frankfurt to hotel 2 km. from Schriesheim? How should we get around all week? Rent bicycles?
I haven't been to Germany since 1981 and then had tour bus as student trip. Do trains run between Schriesheim and Heidelburg, etc?
