September 13, 2018
Along the tenth stage the Rhine bank is densely populated and so the Rheinsteig leads you here a bit off the Rhine valley through quiet forest landscapes and into the Lahn valley.After spending the night at the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress, you will first descend a few meters to the banks of the Rhine. You stroll along the shore here for a while and enjoy the view of Koblenz. Soon the Rheinsteig will lead you away from the shore and into the romantic Bienhorntal.The Bienhornbach formed here over time a picturesque valley landscape and the trail leads you through completely. Shortly before the source of the stream, the Rheinsteig branches off from the Bienhorn valley.On forest paths, you now hike steadily uphill to the lookout Hunsrückblick. Below you can already admire the Lahn in its sweeping riverbed.Afterwards you follow the Rheinsteig downhill to one of the most exciting sections of the entire hike. The Ruppertsbach has cut here namely on its way down to the Lahn an impressive gorge in the slate rocks. After heavy rains or in the spring it bubbles cheerfully downhill and you walk along a narrow rock path directly along the stream.Arrived at the bottom of the gorge, you have reached your stage destination Niederlahnstein.
Currently - July / August 2020 - the gorge can only be walked from bottom to top (corona measure). So if you come from Koblenz via the Rheinsteig, you cannot end your stage normally.

Does anyone know whether the corona measures are still up to date ?! Is the gorge still only allowed to be climbed from the bottom up? 🙁 Or did that only affect July and August last year?

@ Ali did the stage yesterday and at least as far as I saw it there was no prescribed direction PS: Since 31.3. there is now a prescribed direction again ...

@Jana Great! Thanks for the information! 😀 Our goal is Wiesbaden ... maybe we'll meet at one stage or the other. We are also traveling with dogs ... 🐕🦺
So we were there today and because of the hint we went the other direction, i.e. the gorge from bottom to top.But we met many hikers. And we didn't see any signs pointing to only one direction. Neither below nor above.
