The Rheinburgen-Weg

One of the most beautiful hiking trails in the Valley of the Romantic Rhine is the

RheinBurgenWeg or ‘Rhine Castle Trail’, which runs along both banks of the Rhine from Bingen to Bad Breisig and from Rüdesheim to Bad Hönningen, linking over 40 castles in the World Heritage Site. This makes it the trail with the highest density of castles in Europe.

The former knights’ castles and fortifications are the highlights on this technically demanding hiking tour which will overwhelm you with history, too. There’s always another battlement or tower waiting around the next bend in the Rhine. Together they form the masterpieces of Rhenish architecture covering all periods from the Middle Ages up to the 19th century. Many of the buildings are open to visitors and offer insights into everything from courtly life, everyday life in medieval times to interior furnishings through the ages. The Burgenticket is a special castle ticket that gives you reduced rate entry to several of these beautiful stone fortifications. You’ll gradually develop a passion for the Romantic Age and the Rhine’s castles as you progress along the trail on the track of the exciting sagas and legends that surround them.
