Rheingau & Middle Rhine Valley: on the road in hiking wonderland

From the Rheinsteig hiking trail to the Riesling trail – a hiker's paradise

A perfectly expanded network of hiking trails is accessible from Lorch. The "Rheinsteig" is only a few metres away. The same applies to the Rhine castles and "Rheinhöhenweg". Are you a Riesling fan? Then we recommend the "Rieslingpfad". And then the new "Wispertalsteig" is also there – so lace up your hiking boots and let's be off.

Today hiking is one of the popular leisure activities of Germans. But what some consider hiking is for others more like a leisurely coffee party. Good news to all of you: We in the Rheingau can satisfy the needs of both mountaineers and hiking fans.
