Discovery as a multisensory experience. Between Rüdesheim and Bingen in the south and the beginning of the Siebengebirges Hills in the north lies a truly splendorous valley. There is almost no other landscape in Europe where stupendous natural beauty forms the backdrop to a culture that’s more than 2000 years old - and the majestically flowing Rhine connects the highlights of this valley, home to no fewer than two of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites.
Here, with every step you take, you encounter a very special symbiosis of castles and palaces, mediaeval-looking villages and wonderful wines. Tradition, yes of course, but also the fascination inherent in a voyage of discovery, providing you with infinitely varied holiday experiences. On land through romantic alleyways and steep terraces of vines, gliding on the water in one of the many white ships and steamers, and not least in the air, when the view from the numerous vantage points high above the Rhine reveals a panorama of unique magnificence.
A land created for holidaymakers, as old as the ancient sagas and legends of the beauteous Loreley or the estranged brothers, and nonetheless as young and modern as the ARP Museum in the Rolandseck Artists’ Station or der Rheinsteig premium ramblers’ trail. Harmony in the contrasts between hills and valleys, energy-intensive active holidays to times of cosy relaxation. Immerse yourself in a colourful picture-book full of ideas and stories – between the Mouse Tower and Drachenfels Hill with its ruined castle.
