Fondest memory: In winter, after the thaw in Switzerland, many towns along the Rhine River have to fight against the floods. Thank goodness Ingelheim does have some meadows, as well as a dyke (pictured) in order to protect the town from the floods. As far as I can remember nothing seriously ever happened but several years ago there were such heavy floods that there were only a few centimeters left to the top of the dyke and the water almost splashed over into the town. People also feared that the dyke could break. Everything turned out fine though. Ironically the floods always attract hundreds of what we call "flood tourists".
The tourist information provides general info on the city of Ingelheim (also available in English, French and Italian), info on hotels and restaurants, ... etc.. Furthermore they can help you to arrange appointments at wine growing estates in order to try some wines.

The town's only museum is the so-called "museum at the Kaiserpfalz" which houses information on "Karl der Große" and his stays in Ingelheim, the Pfalz of Ingelheim, archeological works in the area, ... etc. It's a very small museum though and thus you shouldn't expect too much, but if you're interested in the history of Ingelheim it's surely worth a visit.
The muesum is opened on Saturdays from 2-5pm and on Sundays from 11am to 5 pm. The entrance fee is 1 Euro, for groups (10 people and more) it's only 80 Cents. Children and teenagers up to 18 years don't have to pay anything.
