Welcome to Rheingau – my home, my love, my life. Wether you are here for a day, a week or to stay, have been living here for a while or your entire life: here’s the list of things you must have done or seen in Rheingau. The list was sorted and put together by friends, fans and myself. You are welcome to suggest additions.

#3 walk, hike or use the gondola to go up to the monument Niederwalddenkmal in Rüdesheim
#4 go by ferry or ship on the Rhine river – no matter where, just be sure to come back!
