    A hike to the Petersberg is definitely worth it!
    From here you have a fantastic view of the whole of Rheinhessen up to the Donnersberg, the Feldberg im Taunus and the Odenwald.
    There was once a church on Petersberg, the remains of which are still preserved. Information boards provide information about the historical background.
    The area is also very interesting geologically.
    There are also information boards on this subject.

    A really worthwhile goal.The Petersberg in Rheinhessen between Bechtolsheim and Gau-Odernheim in the Rhineland-Palatinate district of Alzey-Worms is 245.6 m above sea level. NHN high elevation of the Rheinhessen hill country. It is a witness mountain created by the erosion of the Mainz basin.

    A very nice hike around and on the Petersberg - the old excavations of this church are well worth seeing

    A visit to the Petersberg is always worthwhile. From up here you have a very good view of the Rheinhessen pass. There used to be a church on the platform. Some remains are still there. Since the mountain is a high elevation, you can see mountain bikers up here again and again, but it is also a popular destination for hikers

    I have seldom seen so many information boards in one place as here; you learn a lot of new and interesting things. Those who are lucky can enjoy the remains of the wall of the crypt from the 10th century on their own. It is almost unimaginable that there was once a three-aisled basilica here! Until it was destroyed in the Thirty Years' War, the special crypt architecture was unique in the region, as it is otherwise only found in central Italy.Tip: Anyone who is out and about in mid-April should definitely make a detour to the wild tulips on the Lieberg.

    The Petersberg rises gently above the vineyard landscape and offers a fabulous panoramic view in addition to the ruins of the three-aisled Apostle-Peter-Basilica. Information boards provide information about the history of the area.
    Not far away you can admire the wild tulips in spring.
