Gentle hills, vineyards, quiet woods and small half-timbered villages — Rhinehesse offers hiking pleasure of the cozy kind. The most beautiful hiking trails in Rhinehesse are the signposted Hiwweltouren. In the gentle ups and downs, the nine hikes take you across the Hiwwel — Rhine-Hessian for hills — and along magnificent views. Not only picturesque vineyards await you along the way, but also small wine villages where you can taste the precious grape juice. The Hiwwel tours are between eight and 14 kilometers long and are therefore perfect for leisurely hikers.

Rhinehesse — the sound of the word already makes the heart of wine connoisseurs beat faster. But not only the wines are excellent, also the sun-drenched landscape, in which the vines thrive, is of selected beauty. Framed in the north and east by the Rhine, a wide hilly landscape stretches between the Rhine Slate Mountains and the Palatinate Forest. The wine is of course your constant companion on the hikes — whether you stroll through almost endless vineyards, taste a fine wine on a winery or simply have a bottle with you on your tours. Because on the Hiwwel tours you always have good opportunities for enjoyable breaks. The typical Rhine-Hessian “Tables of Wine”, resting places with tables over five meters long, are particularly well suited to this. With a wonderful view you can then enjoy your provisions and let your gaze wander over the wide landscape — pure hiking pleasure.

As you can see, wine connoisseurs as well as nature lovers get their money's worth in Rheinhesse. Discover the Hiwwel tours and get to know Germany's largest wine-growing region from its picturesque side.

    Of all Hiwweltouren spoils you the hike over the Tiefenthaler height with the most beautiful and longest forest sections. The whole thing is of course garnished with the obligatory views over the sun-kissed vineyards of Rheinhessen.
