Rhine Valley

Due to its stunning beauty, the Rhine is an immensely popular holiday destination. Castles, cathedrals, woods and vineyards, hiking trails and a romantic river bed all contribute to the scenery, which inspired numerous poets and painters.


Assmannshausen is a district in Rüdesheim - Another romantic holiday town 5 km/3 miles down the river in the Lorelei valley.


The Mosel River is one of the longest tributaries of the Rhine. It is a meandering river with a steep valley often more dramatic than the wider Rhine. Like the Rhine, its valleys are planted with vines and castles lurk at every twist and turn. Driving through the valley is slow, due to all the river curves, but rewarding. The natural beauty of the valley is awesome and many picture-perfect villages are strewn along the way.
