Hiking in Rheinhessen

Selztal Terroir Routes

On a total of three adventure circular trails you can enjoy wonderful views of the hills in the landscapes of the Selztal. Colourful vines, flowering orchids, grandiose panoramas, and ancient forests - what sounds like a description from a novel becomes reality in the Selztal.

Too good to be true, there's no such thing here. On your cultural treasure hunt, you can discover lookout towers, explore meadow-like woods, or cross a nature reserve. A true Mecca for pleasure hikers who appreciate cosiness and hospitality. If you want to notably improve your feel-good factor, just follow the traces of wine.
