Cycle paths along the Rhine and Nahe

Endless possibilities on the Nahe cycle path

In terms of beauty and richness of facets, the Nahe is in no way inferior to its "big brother" Rhine. And the wonderful Nahe Cycle Path is the proof. Challenge yourself and master the steep climbs of the upper Nahe valley. Take breaks in pretty villages, from Kirn to Bad Sobernheim to Niederhausen. Discover great sights, from the rock church and the gemstone museum in Idar-Oberstein to the colossal Rotenfels near Bad Münster am Stein and the spa town of Bad Kreuznach with its refreshing graduation works.

When cycling, try a bit of leisureliness. In the lower Nahe Valley, you can shift down a gear. The bike paths that wind through the flat landscape here are ideal for bike tours with your family. Even older cyclists can enjoy the picturesque surroundings without much effort. The harmonious river landscape and wide fields make for an atmospheric bike tour. In Bingen you can then relax and linger on the shore.

On the road in sunny Rheinhessen

The rain jacket is probably there for nothing. Because nowhere else in Germany does the sun shine more often than in Rheinhessen.

In spring or even at harvest time the Fruit Route is a beautiful tour. Through blossoming cherry, apple, pear or even almond trees a play of colors from white and pink. At harvest time, you can buy some of the fruits directly from the farm, cooperative stores or at the weekly markets as provisions for the perfect picnic.

The QuerRhein bike tour connects Rheinhessen with the Rheingau - two wine-growing regions, two ferry trips and in between renowned wineries, wine villages and cultural monuments.

Joshua collector

The Rochusberg is a beautiful corner for walks with views of Rheinhessen, the Nahe Valley and the Rheingau plus the Rhine. A place of strength on a line with the Donnersberg. Hence the Rochus Chapel, which is definitely worth a visit with its stone carvings as well as the grove around it. In autumn all the colors of the vine leaves from green to yellow and ocher to red...

Great tourist information, nice staff, in a beautiful city.


One has from the castle Klopp in Bingen on the Rhine, a beautiful view over Bingen, the Rhine shipping and the many vineyards. Interesting is also the castle fountain, and if you are still fit enough, you can climb the 150 stairs up the tower, here you are compensated with a great panoramic view. Also in history, you can expand his horizons up here still something.

Paul Stöckl

The Rochusberg is very beautiful for hiking all around. Everywhere are benches to rest and picnic and enjoy the beautiful view in every direction. Partially at various vantage points are available barbecue areas that you can use after prior registration.

Silvia W.

Rochusberg is a beautiful place, for walking and recharging your batteries. There is ample parking at the Rochuskirche pilgrimage church. A beautiful circular path with references to Hildegard von Bingen lead through the vineyards. The view from the Rochuskirche into the Rhine valley is beautiful.

Manuela Seiter

The museum at the river is great built and very informative, we were there especially because of Hildegard von Bingen. Not to be missed!


The park at the Mäuseturm and the beautifully designed Kulturufer are essentially thanks to the successful State Garden Show of 2008. When the weather is nice, countless visitors flock to this place on weekends. It is simply a beautiful destination for young and old with a wonderful view over the Rhine.

Bettina Link

The Kulturufer, a former state garden show area from 2008, is still beautifully maintained and diversified 10 years later, invites you to relax and linger, gardens above, including harbor promenade, playground and catering also available, free parking.

C. Sch.

The Kulturufer is a beautiful, well-maintained facility that is definitely worth a visit. In addition to the ship berths, there is a well-balanced gastronomy. There are free (!), clean toilets, which other cities can take an example! This park is a success!
