The Rheinsteig is a hiking trail, following a mainly elevated path along the east bank of the Rhine River in Germany. Its 320 kilometres route stretches from Bonn to Wiesbaden, in the scenic Rhineland region. This walking holiday follows the best section of the "Rheinsteig", a fully waymarked trail that follows the course of the River Rhine upstream. Enjoy dreamy walking through romantic countryside, famous for its castles, vineyards, culture, history, nature and landscapes.

Dramatic castles perched high above the Rhine are frequent along the route. You also pass the world famous Lorelei, a dramatic rock formation where legend has it a siren would lure sailors to their doom. During the walking day, you can enjoy stops at rural wine cellars and spend the evenings in a wide variety of quality restaurants to sample the culinary delights the region is justifiably famous for. What more could you want?

Hiking along the Rheinsteig is remarkably easy due to the excellent signposts, but you'll still work up a sweat: the steep climbs and varying gradients are both a challenge and a pleasure. Famous for its unique landscapes, picturesque towns, castles and vineyards the Rheinsteig will take your breath away with its stunning views.

Car pooling

If you can offer lift in your car, please post a comment below. If you can't find a car pool, team up with others and check out the car rentals.

In addition, I've created a spreadsheet to keep track of who has arranged what. PLEASE make sure to finalize car pooling & accommodation before 14 Feb AND enter your details in the spreadsheet below. If you've RSVP'ed YES but if your details are not in the spreadsheet by 14 Feb, you'll be removed from the list and those in the waiting list will get a chance to join. So don't forget :)

CAMPING:there are several campings in the surrounding of Sankt Goar. Have a look at these campsites (,Sankt+Goar,+Duitsland&ei=ysPSUpu4H8fX0QWSzoCIAw&ved=0CL4BELYD) if you click at the name of the camping in the left column you will get information of the camping.

I ( Marie-José) have decided to go camping and choose camping A: Loreleyblick . I have called the owner. There is place enough and we don't need to book.

If you decided to go camping -yehhh nice ;-) really adventurers- please fill in the spreadsheet which camping you will choose (Loreleyblick or another) and indicate if you have a tent or not. Somewhere in March details about to camp wil follow.

if you have any questions considering to camp don't hesitate to contact me or send me a WhatsApp or sms: +31611363718. In case you send a WhatsApp or sms please don't forget to mention your name

Note: This event is still 'work in progress'. I'll have to figure out the exact routes, accommodation options & ferries. Keep an eye on updates ...
