Where sunny vineyard slopes and expansive forests complement each other in the most perfect manner, where surprising views and fascinating impressions evolve in vivid abundance, you can be sure to be travelling along the Nahe Wine Route.
Your charming escape route from the greyness of everyday life has rewarding surprises waiting for you at all times of the year. How nice it is too that so many wine-tasting and culinary experiences await discovery here. The historically steeped route runs along roads that are centuries old and were already used by the Romans who brought winegrowing and the wine trade to the Nahe region.
The varied highlights of this unique viticultural landscape shine out along the 130-kilometre round trip like sparkling pearls – from the orgel ART museum in Windesheim and the Gutenberg ruins to the former Benedictine monastery in Sponheim. In the warm Nahe Valley, the Rhineland-Palatinate open air museum (Bad Sobernheim) and the secretly mystical Disibodenberg monastic ruins (Odernheim am Glan) are well worth a visit. At the heart of southerly exposed steep slopes, the route achieves a peak of dramatic landscape beauty with the Rotenfels standing out as the largest steep face between the Alps and Scandinavia. Particularly worth seeing along this section are the ruins of Rheingrafenstein, the world-famous graduation works of the Salinen Valley and the historic centre of Bad Kreuznach with its many museums and much-photographed bridge houses.
