The penultimate stage is only about ten kilometers long and so you can easily enjoy the evening before an extra bottle of wine. Today's tour takes you away from the vineyards and into the green mountains of the Rheingau.You leave Kiedrich heading north and make a small visit to the Scharfenberg castle ruins. In addition to the old keep there is a great view of Kiedrich and the Rheingau.The Rheinsteig then leads you first through the Sülzbachtal and then into the idyllic nature of the Buchwaldgraben. A beautiful hiking trail leads here through a peaceful Au and forest landscape.From the Buchwaldgraben you follow a quiet forest path to the stage destination Schlangenbad.Like the other stages in the Rheingau, you can reach Schlangenbad only by bus. From Eltville train station the bus 173 will take you directly to Schlangenbad. The timetable can be found at r-t-v.de/fahrplaene-rheingau.html.
