The Wispertaunus - a stroke of luck:
Wisper-valley and Taunus - two beautiful landscapes forming a wonderful hiking area: The Wispertaunus. Its centerpiece is the "Wisper" - a 29 km long tributary of the rhine. It is a world apart: A lot of unaffected nature, encounters along the foodpath you'll be amazed about. Dreamy trails surrounded by old trees, which could tell many stories. Rocks piling up like saga figures. Views and insights, mountains and valleys, crystal clear water and never heard silence - that's what you are going to experience. Hikers tell about dear encounters on a regular base. With a lot of luck you are going to see ospreys on their forays or kingfishers wearing their shiny dress. You are in need of a bit more luck to see a rare black stork. Not only salmon but also wildcats and bobcats are back! But encounters do have special rarity value. Racoon families are less shy - they are widespread here. In the evening bats leave their hiding places. 


The famous Rheinsteig - Moments of happiness step by step
The Rheinsteig is a lucky strike for our area. It is a magnet. 320 km of trails  with great views starting in Bonn and ending in Wiesbaden. Of course, it also works the other way round. Everyone is talking about the Rheinsteig: Certified in 2006 and awarded with the German hiking signet as a premium trail. It really is something special. Good to know: You won't enjoy the company of the river rhine all the time. But following our recommendations you are going to see the rhine - actually from the very top. 


Our recommendations for your ways to happiness: 
The Wisper Trails are still an insider tip for hikers. Signpostings move purposefully towards their completion. We recommend 3 - already signposted - tours:

  • Route „Wispertaunussteig“, section Lorch to Sauerthal, ca. 10 km
  • Circular route „Rhein-Wisper-Glück“, ca. 11 km
  • Circular route „Wispertalsteig“, ca. 14 km

The Rheinsteig completes your hiking happiness. We picked two tours starting right at the hotel with great views for you: 

  • Lorch to Kaub, approx. 13,5 view-ful kilometers. Return by train.
  • Lorch to Assmannshausen / Rüdesheim, approx. 19 - 23 km and maaany rhine views. Return by train or boat.

A pleasant tour - by chairlift, cable car and boat. Visit the famous "Germania", glide over vineyards, visit the "Drosselgasse" and make a boat trip on the rhine. We offer you a ticket for the whole round trip and we are sure: You are going to come back feeling very happy.
