Itinerary

Detailed tour description

Day 1: Individual arrival to Mainz
The charming city of Mainz greets you with typical architecture and splendid baroque. Take a stroll to the dome St. Martin, the Gutenberg-Museum, or the castle. There is even a roman amphitheatre to be visited.
 
Day 2: Mainz – Schlangenbad (approx. 17 km, walking time: approx. 4.5 hrs)
Start your first day with a boat tour on the Rhine. Arrived at castle Biebrich in Wiesbaden, you walk to the Schiersteiner harbour. Take your time while walking through the Rhinegau vineyards towards the thermal spa Schlangenbad. On your way you have the chance to go to a view point at the Spitzen Stein to have a panoramic view of the Rhine valley. You also pass the ruin Frauenstein, an old castle on your way towards Schlangenbad.
 
Day 3: Schlangenbad – Oesterich-Winkel (approx. 24 km, walking time: approx. 6 hrs)
First thing you will see when you start walking will be the ruins of another castle named Scharfenstein. Through wine slopes you will continue your way towards the impressive monastery Eberbach, which is often used as a backdrop for historical movies. Take your time to walk around before finishing today´s journey to the wine town Oestrich-Winkel. With a glass of local wine enjoy the evening.
 
Day 4: Oestrich-Winkel – Rüdesheim (approx. 17 km, walking time: approx. 5 hrs)
Today you will visit on your hike the famous vineyard Vollrads, where the wine Riesling is produced. If you take a break here, maybe try some of the delicious wines in the old coach house. Hopefully not tipsy continue your way through a light forest towards a place of pilgrimage, the monastery Marienthal and even further to the famous abbey St. Hildegard. Soon after the abbey you will reach Rüdesheim, which is another wine town, where even the old Roman already drank wine. You will stay overnight there.
 
Day 5: Rüdesheim – Lorch (approx. 21 km, walking time: approx. 5.5 hrs)
Take the cable car to the top of the high rides of Middle-Rhine valley where you can enjoy the panoramic view of the estuary of Nahe. Go the Rhine-path further and pass the hunting castle Niederwald. Take a break at Assmannshausen and drink some of the local wine. Now it isn´t too far anymore till Lorch. Lorch is a rustical, but quite charming, old town with a lot of timbered houses.
 
Day 6: Lorch – Dörscheid/Kaub (approx. 13 km, walking time: approx. 4 – 4.5 hrs)
Whilst walking towards the little wine towns of Dörscheid and Kaub, you will pass quite a few castles and ruins as well as some vantage points from which you will have an amazing view across the Rhine valley.
 
Day 7: Dörscheid/Kaub – St. Goarshausen and surroundings (approx. 19 km, walking time: approx. 6 hrs)
As legends told about the fair stone Lorely you probably never expected to see it, or even climb on it. Now you get to do it. From there you will get an unforgettable panoramic view. Famous is also the three-castle view: the castles Katz (cat), Maus (mouse) and Rheinfels(Rhine stone). You will spend the night at St. Goarshausen.
 
Day 8: St. Goarshausen – Kamp-Bornhofen (approx. 21 km, walking time: 6 hrs)
Walk through the idyllic path inside the protected landscape Filsener surrounded by castles, winkled paths and a mythical feeling. Finish this day´s journey at Kamp-Bornhofen, where the two castles Liebenstein and Sterrenberg are built. The two castles originate, so tells a legend “Feindliche Brüder” (hostile brothers), there.
 
Day 9: Kamp-Bornhofen – Braubach (approx. 17 km, walking time: approx. 5.5 hrs)
Take a book about the legends on the Rhine with you, because today you will see stuff, of what legends are made off. So you will see the castle Liebeneck and the mills of Dinkelhofer. Another highlight on your tour will be the impressive castle Marksburg. Marksburg is completely conserved and is one of the UNESCO-heritage. Later you will finish today in Braubach, a wine-grower town with the characteristic timbered houses.
 
Day 10: Braubach – Koblenz (approx. 20 km, walking time: approx. 5.5 hrs)
The last stage of your journey is quite long. First cross a tributary river to the Rhine at Lahnstein and continue to the slide of Kerkertser, where you will walk along, as well as the Rupertsklamm, which is a fascinating gorge. But even if the way today is long, you will be rewarded with beautiful landscapes and scenic views. The great final on the last day is the Deutsches Eck (German Corner) in Koblenz, where Mosel and Rhine join. Stay overnight in Koblenz.

Day 11: Individual departure from Koblenz
Take your time to review your memories of the journey before spending some time discovering Koblenz. It is one of the oldest cities in Germany and has several old churches and castles to be visited. If you want to stay for an additional day or two in Koblenz, Mainz or Rüdesheim, we will help you book and plan.
