The Rüdesheim Seilbahn/Elvis Was Here

Cable Car, Rudesheim

Rüdesheim: 6th April 2018

 When we rode the Rüdesheim Seilbahn, it seemed rather familiar, and I wondered if it was the one Elvis Presley rode in ‘GI Blues’? So, I did a little research, and it wasn’t long before I found:

And, here’s my video … and no, I’m not going to sing Rainbows! But, you will see that we rode in Car No. 74; Elvis used No. 76. If we’d arrived at the bottom station a couple of minutes later, we could (assuming the cars are arranged in numerical order) have really been on ‘holy ground’!

  1. Sorry Elvis was never there.. The scenes with Elvis were all filmed in the studio in Hollywood

    • I really am disappointed that you are not going to post a video of you in karaoke mode.

      • You’ve missed nothing! My version of ‘God Save the Weasel’ sounds exactly like ‘Pop Goes the Queen’!! 😊
