The Rheinsteig - a portrait
Nature, culture and challenging hiking
The RheinSteig is a 320 km trail along the right bank of the Rhine connecting Bonn, Koblenz and Wiesbaden, mainly on narrow paths with steep climbs and descents through forests and vineyards to spectacular views. Meticulously signposted and closely cross-linked, the route is suitable for ambitious long-distance hikes or highly varied shorter walks, easily accessible by rail, boat or car. Yellow-marked access routes guide hikers safely to the blue-marked main trail and then back into towns and villages again, making it easy to plan out the route in stages.
