Apart from wine, the Rheinhessen region offers many choices for amazing vacations.
Mainz is the best place to start and to have as a starting point for three major reasons: It was good enough for the Romans, a city steeped in history and culture, it’s the Great Wine Capital of Germany and has an abundance of farm to table food and because the city knows how to party!
Worms is the city where Lutheranism started. There are lots of beautiful sights to discover in Worms: the Romanesque Cathedral, Europe’s oldest Jewish cemetery, the synagogue in the old town.
Finish your tour of Rheinhessen with a visit to Alzey, named for the fiddler in the legend “Song of the Nibelung”. Alzey has everything you expect from an ancient German village, including its own fish market, streets of perfectly preserved half-timbered houses, and a Renaissance-era town hall!
For outdoor activities in Rheinhessen, there are about 597 hikes for you to discover within the region. Cycling, running, and equestrian routes await the open-air enthusiastic to enjoy the holidays in Rheinhesse.
