The ancientBrömserburg Castle is located in Rüdesheim on the Rhine. It wasbuilt in the beginning of the XI century. There are very few castles of thisage survived in Europe. The archbishops of Mainz were its first owners, who latergave the fortress to their vassals. As a result, the castle passed from thehands of a knightly family to another until 1548, when it became the propertyof the Brömser family- hence its name.
Brömserburg Castle is not only a historicaland architectural monument, but also a magnificent museum of the wine businessand the native land (Rheingauer Weinmuseum). Here you can taste the best varietiesof the Rhenish wine. Tastings are organized on the open terrace on the castle roofand are extremely popular. In addition, it is a pleasure to admire themagnificent collection of wine glasses - from medieval models up to the presentday. In total, the museum features over 2000 exhibits devoted to the history ofwine making: you can see the barrels, wine press, other tools for harvestinggrapes and making wine. The museum is open from March to October.
