We hiked a half mile or so over to the nearest train station on this cold and clear Sunday, and bought a day pass to ride a regional train as far as Nierstein.
This is the heart of the Rhine wine region but we found not much was open.
After a quick walk around Nierstein, we caught a train back to Bodenheim and set our sights on Uriger Weinkeller, well rated on Yelp and Trip Advisor.
One wouldn't have known it was open from the outside, but the inside was filled with happy Germans enjoying their Sunday afternoon.
We enjoyed two plates of snacks and a couple of glasses of white wine before catching the train back to Mainz and a pleasant walk back along the Rhine to the Hilton.
All in all a pleasant Sunday...
