Hiking the Rhine River valley on your river cruise is an exciting and active way to experience all the wonders that this region has to offer- from ancient castles to vineyards that have been around for close to 1000 years. As you explore historic Heidelberg, take a hike up the famed Philosopher's Path to get a breathtaking panoramic view of the city below. Rudesheim is another great place to get in tune with nature as you smell the fresh scents of the thousands of acres of vineyards. In Cochem, you can hike the Appolloweg to see Cochem Castle and the Winneburg ruins. And hiking is a great way to acquaint yourself with medieval Lahnstein. Let us know when you want to start planning your active hiking adventure on the Rhine River.
