Mid-Rhine - UNESCO World heritage

 

The wine region of Mid-Rhine between Bingen and Bonn is one of Germany's smallest regions. However, the climate is mild with many sunny days. The Rhine acts as a giant heat reservoir and steep banks create a good micro climate for the best Riesling conditions which occupies approximately three-quarters of the vineyards. The character of the wines grown here is created by the Slate erosion soil.

Numerous steep slopes of the Mid-Rhine are additionally crowned with castles and fortresses that brought this region the title of UNESCO-World heritage. Among the many highlights of the Mid-Rhine is a boat trip on the Rhine with breath-taking views of medieval castles and the world famous “Loreley-rock” Or, a possible addition to that, a hike along the steep slopes.
