The Rheinsteig: hiking along the Rhine. Along with the Eifelsteig, the Malerweg, the Rothaarsteig, and the Moselsteig, the Rheinsteig is one of the absolute German hiking classics. The Rheinsteig follows a path along the right bank of the Middle Rhine in Germany. The 320 km route stretches from Wiesbaden to Bonn and attracts thousands of hikers and Riesling wine lovers from all over Germany and neighbouring countries every year.

From Beethoven's hometown along one of Europe's lifelines (the Rhine) to beautiful Wiesbaden. Or vice versa. The Rheinsteig can be walked in both directions and instead of walking the whole route at once, most Rheinsteigers only walk one, two or three stages during a trip. Walk with us along the most beautiful stages of the Rheinsteig and get inspired.
