Valley Nature / Park
A good way to see Rhine Valley is from the Rhine river, taking advantage of one of the many companies that offer boat trips. Alternatively, the valley is perfect for a pleasant, scenic drive or bike ride. This area is packed with medieval castles and old churches. Visit the Burg Landeck, a ruined hill castle, for superb views that go as far as the Black Forest. People have cultivated vineyards in this area for centuries, and it is still the capital of the German wine industry. Visit some of the vineyards to sample some excellent wine. Be sure to stop off at some of the charming towns along the Rhine. Using our world travel planner, Geisenheim attractions like Rhine Valley can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • A must if you are in the area west of Germany. The wonderful castles, vegetation and amazing vineyards on the banks of the River are a spectacular sight. You can travel through on their margins by train, bike or car but the best way by far is River cruise on any of the companies that run stopping at each village. If you go in summer, remember that the sun hits, should be protected.

It is a succession of cities that do not have them, was bombed during the war, and castles watching over the Valley (40); amateur old houses and castles, you will be happy! In addition, people here are lovely, the smile is all required. Count at least 1 to 2 days.
