Discover the Naheland region, the Rhine Valley and the Palatinate

Burg Klopp Castle- Rhine Valley

The town is surrounded by a very scenic landscape. Bad Kreuznach is the gateway to what is known as the Mild West – this nickname gives you an idea of what there is to see outside the town: a breath-taking landscape of gently rolling hills, jagged rocks, woods and forests, idyllic river valleys, vineyards, picturesque villages, and a wealth of various reminders of this region’s eventful past. Detailed information can be found on the website of Naheland-Touristik (Naheland regional tourist board).

Naheland - romantic landscape

From the mouth of the River Rhine to the source of the River Nahe in Saarland, the Naheland stretches between Hunsrück and the North Palatinate mountains. The spa towns of Bad Kreuznach, Bad  Münster am Stein-Ebernburg and Bad Sobernheim are just as much a part of it as the gemstone town of Idar-Oberstein or romantic Meisenheim. Viticulture characterises the hillylandscape, which is also rich in forests. Many village situations enchant with their special charm. On the Naheland-Touristik website you will find the highlights and special tips for discovering the Naheland.

Experience wine culture in the Rheinhessen region

The region of Rheinhessen stretches between Mainz, Bingen and Worms and is characterised by viticulture, rolling hills and the proximity to the Rhine. There are also points of cultural and historical significance - such as the imperial palace of Ingelheim, the cities of Worms and Mainz or Bingen. The nature experience is diverse. But the outstanding feature of Rheinhessen is its enjoyment and inviting hospitality. The cultural heritage of the Jewish communities in Mainz, Worms and Speyer has been declared a World Heritage Site.
