Let’s go back to Romantic Rhine Valley! From UNESCO World Herritage Centre homepage: ´The 65km-stretch of the Middle Rhine Valley, with its castles, historic towns and vineyards, graphically illustrates the long history of human involvement with a dramatic and varied natural landscape. It is intimately associated with history and legend and for centuries has exercised a powerful influence on writers, artists and composers´. This time we will hike Rheinsteig, it´s exactly on the other side of the river compared to last years Rhein Burgen Weg hike we did in October. The trail on the first day is described as ´intermediate´ and on the second day ´difficult´. The most difficult part of the Rheinsteig is also most breath-taking, so all the hard work is worth it! 😊 However, before you sign up you should consider following, previous hiking experience, good fitness and good hiking shoes are required. You shouldn't be afraid of heights.
