The Rheinhessen region is ideal for a wide variety of day trips to the Rhine-Main region. Visit the historic imperial palace of Ingelheim and follow in the footsteps of Charlemagne. Or let yourself be pampered with exquisite cuisine in the House of Wine in the Wasems Kloster Engelthal. Speaking of wine: at the Vinothek Bingen, which was built in 2008 as part of the State Garden Show, a modern pavilion made of glass, steel, and wood awaits you at the gateway to the UNESCO World Heritage Site Upper Middle Rhine Valley.
In the mood for tee time? The perfect tee-off awaits you at the Worms Golf Club, an idyllic 9-hole course that is one of the oldest in Rhineland-Palatinate. You'd rather aim a little higher? Then climb the Bismarck Tower on the Westerberg. 33 metres high and over 100 years old. At the beginning of the 14th Century, however, the Bingen Mäuseturm Tower was erected. The function as watchtower is derived from the Middle High German "musen" which means, “lurking.”
On hot days, the Pfarrwiesensee Gimbsheim invites you to immerse yourself in cool waters. Gravel is extracted here during the week, but on beautiful weekends the lake is in the hands of sun-hungry leisure-seekers. Botany lovers will also find green refreshment in the Botanical Gardens of the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz. The scientific garden is comprised of open spaces and several greenhouses.
