    The first half of the fifth stage takes you through the beautiful Taunus. You leave the spa town of Bad Camberg behind and head to Idstein. Passing the Hexenturm, the city's landmark, you will reach the lovely old town. The following places Dasbach, Oberseelbach and Niederseelbach are picturesque villages with the half-timbered houses so typical of Hessen. You finally reach the slab via Engenhahn in a long ascent. This pass in the Taunus main ridge marks the highlight of this stage.The long descent that follows takes you down into the Rhine Valley. First you drive through the forest and through the aisles you can always enjoy far-reaching views of Wiesbaden below you. Driving through the quiet suburbs of the Hessian state capital, you can ignore the hustle and bustle of the big city. At Mainz-Kostheim, which, contrary to its name, surprisingly does not belong to Mainz in Rhineland-Palatinate, but to Wiesbaden in Hesse, you finally cross the Main. Not far from here, the Main flows into the Rhine at the point of the Main.If you have the time, I recommend taking a short detour for a great view of the Rhine and Mainz opposite. The Mainspitze is signposted, you can hardly miss it. The last kilometers of the stage then take you comfortably over the Rhine cycle path near the shore to the outskirts of Ginsheim.
