Elemental forces of water, earth and stone were at work when Rheinhessen, the land of a thousand hills, was formed. These hills are affectionately called "Hiwwel" in the region. They characterize the landscape in Germany's largest wine-growing region. The eastern and northern border is formed by the majestic Rhine, which accompanies Rheinhessen for about 90 kilometers. From the Rhine meadows in the north to the foothills of the Nordpfälzer Bergland & Rheinhessische Schweiz in the south, nature in Rheinhessen is varied, there are hidden gems and places to pause. Discover the diverse landscape of Rheinhessen!
