komoot planned a hike.
September 12, 2018
At the 17th stage it is now time to say goodbye to the picturesque slopes of the Middle Rhine Valley. Until the end of this stage, you will still be hiking on the ridges of the Rhine Valley, but from the high plateau Niederwald the Rheinsteig will take you into the Rheingau. So that the farewell is not so difficult, shows the Middle Rhine Valley again at its best.From Lorch you can hike on the sun-drenched mountain slopes of the Rhine Valley through endless vineyards. If you look at the juicy grapes on the vines here, you will understand why the wine in Lorch tasted so delicious.Several viewpoints with benches invite you to take a break along the way before you reach the town of Assmanshausen. From here it goes up to the high plateau Niederwald. If you want to save yourself the altitude, you can also take the cable car and hover comfortably in the air.On the top of the Niederwald you can expect not only beautiful views of the Rhine Valley, but also the famous Niederwald Monument with the Germania statue. From the Niederwald you can then take a second cable car down to the stage destination Rüdesheim.Information about the two cable cars can be found at seilbahn-ruedesheim.de/willkommen and seilbahn-assmannshausen.de.
