Germany’s largest wine-growing areaFriendly welcomes, warm hospitality, sunny days and fine wines – these are some of the things that make Rheinhessen so special. This region of a thousand hills stretches from Worms to Bingen, always following the course of the Rhine.

At its very heart is the city of Mainz, the birthplace of Johannes Gutenberg and the wine capital of Germany.

Since 1816 – so for two hundred years exactly – the region has been known as Rheinhessen and that is cause for celebration! And the locals are doing just that with a whole host of events in 2016 centred around their golden wine.

The best way to explore the rich and varied landscape of Rheinhessen is on foot or by bike. There are countless walking and cycling trails that will take you through the vineyards. It’s a great idea to take a picnic or stop off at one of the many wineries for a bite to eat.

There are many more anniversaries to look forward to in 2016, such as the 500th anniversary of the German Beer Purity Law, 800 years of the Dresden Kreuzchor boys’ choir, the tenth anniversary of the Mercedes-Benz Museum and the 600th edition of the Wurstmarkt wine festival in Bad Dürkheim – be sure not to miss them!

Rheinhessen is Germany’s largest winegrowing area. Innovation and high quality are the hallmarks of the local wine culture in this welcoming and hospitable region.

While visiting the region, you can look forward to a whole host of wine shops and other wine-related highlights.
