Day 20: Mt. Pilatus (Switzerland) - St Goar (Germany)

St Goar is a small town in Germany. It is well known for its wine produce, especially the ice wine. Ice wine is sweet, not like other wines. The grapes used for ice wine are picked from the vineyards only when it's frozen at a certain degree. Because it's difficult to harvest, a bottle of ice wine is generally more expensive.

In the evening, we had a river cruise along the Rhine river. From here, we could view the castles on top of the hill and also the Lorelei Rock which is a statue of a mermaid. The legend said that sailors who saw the beautiful mermaid would get distracted and they would probably encountered some accident later.
