Forest bathing in the hiker's paradise Bingen

Recreation in and with nature on the Romantic Rhine

Relax in nature. Enjoy the fresh forest air. Recharge your batteries. Be aware of your surroundings. Vibrate in harmony with it. Forest bathing. Enjoy the natural tranquillity under the canopy of the Bingen forest. Because as Hildegard von Bingen once said: "There is a power from eternity, and it is green."

Simone Henke combines meditation and breathing exercises with the healing power of the forest. The combination has a positive effect on physical and mental well-being. The close contact with nature and the focus on your own body slow you down and create a greater awareness of the natural world around you. A nice balance to the fast-paced working day.

Forest walk with all five senses

Meditation, movement and mindfulness in the Bingen Forest

Forest bathing in Bingen brings together many elements. The oxygen-rich air awakens your spirits. Meditation and mindfulness exercises on the forest floor make it easier for you to shift down a gear. The humidity of the forest is a balm for your respiratory system. The sun gives you valuable vitamin D for your immune system. You feel healthier. You feel more awake. You feel more alive.

Consciously perceive the forest. With all five senses. Feel the gentle springing of the soft ground. Smell and taste the spicy air of resin, moss and flowering plants. Watch the magical play of light from the sun in the treetops. Listen to the soothing sounds of gently blowing wind, rustling leaves and cheerful birdsong. Enjoy the many impressions and let your mind wander.

Japan's nature therapy directly on the Rhine

Forest bathing in Bingen against everyday stress

Forest bathing comes from Japan. No wonder, because almost 70 percent of the Japanese islands are covered with forests. Here, the combination of recreation and nature therapy has been around for a long time. It is called "Shirin Yoku". But in Japan it is not just a hobby, but is increasingly being researched, promoted and prescribed as therapy.

Take some time out and immerse yourself in the healthy atmosphere of the forest. Leave your smartphone or tablet at home and get to know the Bingen Forest in a new way. Your body, mind and soul will thank you!

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...

Christopher Kubaseck

Nice staff at the tourist information. There is a lot of free information material about Bingen and the surrounding area. Also a free toilet is available, including disabled toilet and baby changing facilities. Here is also the ticket office for events in the city.

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!
