The area around the Rüdesheimer Berg has been interesting for "connoisseurs" since the 9th century, because it includes several of the best vineyards in Germany: 90% of the approximately 90 hectares of cultivation area are used for Riesling. Accordingly, a vineyard hike can be easily combined with a bird excursion!
