Brömserhof in Rüdesheim

Just a few steps from the Drosselgasse you'll find the Brömserhof. It hosts Germany's first Museum of Mechanical Music Instruments, also called "Siegfried's Mechanisches Musikkabinett". Parts of the building date back to 1310 which you will see when you take a tour through the museum.

Nowadays the museum holds a collection of 350 instruments from 3 centuries - from small music boxes from the 18th century up to large organs from funfairs (which I'm going to show you soon). In one of the windows you can see a glockenspiel with bells made out of ceramics.

Nicola, I'm looking at your photo at the same time as its mirror image in the card you sent me for my (hic!) correct answer in the (hic!) wine bottle contest. Thank you so much!

Yes, the building is lovely and the museum sounds most intriguing!

I love the car as well - hope some car buff will tell us the year and model. It is a most beautiful shade of green.
