Numerous restaurants, cafés and stores make the lovingly restored city center a secret shopping destination. But activity enthusiasts are also drawn to the gates of the city. Because there begins the rhinehessian switzerland and a mixture of wine, landscape, well-preserved monuments and foothills of the North Palatinate mountains. Numerous hiking trails and bike paths are waiting to be explored. On the four hiking trails, the "Hiwwelt" toursOn the trails that lead through the Rhine-Hessian Switzerland, you can climb through vineyards, meadows, forests and up hills. You will be rewarded with beautiful views.

For wine lovers...

All of Rheinhessen is the perfect vacation spot for wine lovers, but a city trip to Nierstein is especially worthwhile. Because only here you can find the world-famous Riesling vineyards on the Rote Hang. The red soil gives the wine a unique flavor and, together with the green leaves of the vine and the blue of the Rhine, an impressive view. When hiking you can let your gaze wander over the vineyards and across the Rhine. The quaint wine taverns on the historic market square invite you to enjoy the Riesling. The city has one or two surprises in store for wine lovers.

For water lovers...

Several Rhine-Hessian cities are located on the Rhine, but in none are the proximity to the water and the Rhine as present as in Bingen. Not for nothing is Bingen called the gateway to the Middle Rhine. I could stroll along the banks of the Rhine for hours, even days, enjoying the sea of blossoms on the former state garden show grounds and letting my gaze wander into the distance over the sunlit vineyards. If you're feeling a little more adventurous, you can also experience the Rhine on a boat trip or up close with water sports. Once a year, the river shines in the light of fireworks. A visit to the annual Rhine in flames is a must for lovers of the Rhine. Bingen has even more to offer, it applies to the legendary Bingen mouse tower and the city of Hildegard of Bingen to discover.
