Rheingau
Walking

The Rheingau is famous for its wine, which you’ll find everywhere during walks and hikes in the region. Walkers can enjoy the wine landscape by relaxing in one of the numerous wine taverns and bars. However, the Rheingau has much more to offer than walks through vineyards; its landscape offers a diverse and intense walking experience. For example, the Rheinsteig is situated between Wiesbaden and Lorch and takes walkers up and down narrow stretches and along nicely paved paths that reveal amazing views.
