The RheinBurgenWeg trail runs for approx. 200km through a unique cultural landscape from the Mäuseturm tower at Bingen to the Roland Arch near Remagen. Along the way you will experience the many different aspects of the Rhenish Massif, the northernmost wine-producing area in Germany in the Ahr Valley and the world's largest cold water geyser in Andernach. From here, the trail continues to Koblenz, gateway to the UNESCO World Heritage site, the Upper Middle Rhine Valley. The RheinBurgenWeg trail runs through the entire valley and brings the hiker along the left bank of the Rhine to Remagen.
