Numerous hiking trails cross the Rhine bend


Gedeonseck Viewpoint
Boppard is at least as beautiful. Here the Rhine makes a loop, which of course is best admired from above. A hike to Gedeonseck and Vierseenblick offers the most spectacular views. Those who want to devote themselves entirely to Rhine wine can also do so extensively here, because the Bopparder Hamm is not only known for its good wines, but also offers an educational wine trail.

Hiking tip
This hiking trail winds along the Rhine for over 200 km between Rolandsbogen and Bingen. As the name suggests, hikers on the RheinBurgenWeg encounter beautiful views from the Rhine and countless castles, palaces and ruins: masterpieces of Rhenish architecture from medieval times to the 19th century.
