What our guests say

Bingen is simply beautiful. We are there at least once a year at the motorhome site in Gaulsheim. We usually visit the wine festival in Bingen. Very nice restaurants there. Very good food everywhere we've been. Tourist info very nice. All in all top.

Doris Heinrich

Many thanks for the organization of the city tour. Also many thanks to Mr. Jungerts, who expanded our knowledge of Bingen with wit and expertise. Also the selected restaurants were great. He did a very good job. All around a successful event. For this again to you both many thanks. Many greetings from Wuppertal

Reinhard Engmann

So Bingen is worthwhile in general whether the Rhine in flames the Rhine the near or the vineyards and the good wine even carnival can be celebrated well there am Palatinate but the Rhine Hesse / Kurpfalz Rhineland area is also super greetings from the Palatinate Forest ✌✌👍🌲🌳

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.


Competent staff, had a lot of fun on the recommended tour.

Thomas Schwarzenburg

Jasmin Ackermann

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!
