Hiking on the "Red Hang" in Nierstein, © Michael Zellmer

RheinTerrassenWeg-stage Oppenheim - Nierstein - Nackenheim - Bodenheim

In Oppenheim, Katharinenkirche, Kellerlabyrinth and the ruin Landskrone provide a great start, before extended vineyards offer wonderful views. The Niersteiner marketplace is one of the most beautiful places in Rheinhessen with its ambience and is ideal for a break, before the climb to the Red Hang demands a bit of fitness. Rheinhessen's "most beautiful wine view on the Brudersberg" is worth the effort. Great views accompany the hiker to Nackenheim, with a beautiful view of the church of St. Gereon. The last part to Bodenheim is quickly mastered. The wine village is the Mecca for Strausswirtschaften and Gutsschänken in Rheinhessen.
