Rüdesheim, Germany - Mechanical Music Museum

From the tour brochure: The unique Winzerexpress train takes you from the dock of the ship to the "Siegfried Mechanical Music Cabinet", where you can expect a musical adventure with historical self-playing instruments. Thereafter, a guided tour leads you through the picturesque town.  Explore the heart of the old town of Rüdesheim - the Drosselgasse - where wine houses and garden taverns invite you to linger. Immerse yourself in the history of the city and visit the Eagle Tower, a part of the city wall, and the fortifications from the 15th century.
Duration: about 2 hours. Walking grade: Moderate walking tour. May need to climb steps. Price: 23 euros / $23.98

We visited the museum and walked through the center of town. Our tour guide showed us a vintner's hotel with wine barrels as sleeping rooms.
