The Hiwweltouren - enjoy hiking in the wine country

The Hiwweltouren show the most beautiful corners of the region

From forests, vineyards and pastures lined paths, the view of the vastness of the Rhine Valley to the Taunus, on the gentle vineyards or flowering orchards - the predicate hiking trails in Rheinhessen do not save with charms in every season.

"Hiwwel" means in Rheinhessen "hills" - fantastic views are guaranteed. The 6 to 14-kilometer rounds combine light and medium-heavy routes with romantic half-timbered villages and towns with beautiful picnic areas and viewpoints. In addition to a varied route guidance, the sights and rest stops as well as the good signage along the routes provide for the enjoyment. Extensive vineyards with old vineyard walls and cottages, impressive heathland, knotty oak-pine forests, impressive quarries, traces of an old state border and again and again grandiose panoramas to the horizon make up these tours. Exactly the right one for relaxed pleasure hikes.

A hiking holiday with several tours is easy to plan individually. But there are also suitable packages: "Hiking, wine and cuisine" is the name and program of an arrangement that leads to the hiking paradise of Rheinhessen Switzerland. Four beautiful hiking trails are close together. The typical wine village Flonheim welcomes guests with warm hospitality and culinary discoveries on a high level.
