The Rheinsteig in stages
Up and down the Rhine - always a memorable experience
The stages described here are just suggestions. As every town or village on the RheinSteig has a local public transport connection and almost every town or village in the Rhine valley has a railway station, it is possible to tailor hikes for different fitness levels and to suit individual wishes. The good transport connections also allow day trips to be planned, as returning to the starting point is easy by bus, rail or boat (such as the Cologne-Düsseldorf Rhine river cruise company).
