Wine experience in the Rheingau
In the Rheingau, wine, culture and nature combine to create a unique wine experience
Viticulture has shaped the Rheingau and Middle Rhine for many centuries. The pleasing, gently rolling landscape of the Rheingau on the one hand and the rugged rock formations of the narrow Middle Rhine Valley with steep slope vineyards on the other, are the ideal soil for top international wines from Germany.
As if drawn with a ruler, row after row of vines runs through the fabulously beautiful landscape. Castles, palaces, the Rhine and numerous stately vineyards frame the vineyards as if in a picture book. Whether hiking on the numerous footpaths, cycling on the well-developed cycle paths, taking a Rhine boat trip from the water or using other means of transport: The landscape experience is unique. With their vibrant wine culture, Rüdesheim and Assmannshausen form the gateway between the UNESCO World Heritage Upper Middle Rhine Valley and the Rheingau.
Plan enough time for a visit to a winery, a wine tavern, a vinotheque, a wine cellar or another stop. This way you can experience the captured landscape in your glass over a glass of Riesling or Spätburgunder.
Your hosts at the Central Hotel Rüdesheim will be happy to organise a visit to the many local wineries. Of course, numerous regional wines are also available directly at the hotel.
