We experience the beauty and tranquility of the Waldhaus in Rüdesheim, high above the Rhine River. Nestled in the Taunus Mountains. Absolutely charming vacation rental. The breathtaking landscapes of the Rheingau region, with its historic castles, scenic vineyards, and scenic hiking trails are stunning. The spacious living and dining area, complete with direct access to the outdoor courtyard is perfect. With its stunning surroundings and convenient amenities, the Waldhaus promises a memorable stay in Rüdesheim am Rhein.

We visit Rüdesheim every year for the ‘Magic Bike’ event and love staying at the Waldhaus. The motorcycles can be parked in the courtyard and the facilities in the Waldhaus are perfect for our weekend trip. We always like to come back.

As a photographer and influencer, I like to use the Waldhaus as a home base for my photo excursions. The Rhine Valley is ideal for my stories and offers countless wonderful motifs. Highly recommended, especially in summer. The facilities in the Waldhaus are great and the price-performance ratio is good. I’m already looking forward to the next time.

During my trip through europe I found this gorgeous place nested between the rhine river and the taunus mountains. Very cosy with all the comfort you can wish for at a very good price. Most of the famous sights can be discovered walking which is great. The Waldhaus is my secret tip for every backpacker traveling europe visiting the Rheingau region.

Rüdesheim am Rhein is more than the Drosselgasse

You can talk a lot, explain a lot, but it is simply not possible to describe the charm of the Rheingau. The region has a different effect on everyone: one person gets thirsty, another just wants to relax, the next is gripped by hiking fever…

Rüdesheim with its historic old town and jetties is the pearl at the gateway to the “Middle Rhine Valley” World Heritage Site and a popular destination for bikers, cyclists and Rheinsteig hikers.

The grape harvest

Experience the Rheingau at the most beautiful time of the year and indulge in the hustle and bustle of a region fully dedicated to viticulture and specialized in Riesling. In the traditional restaurants you can get an idea of the diversity of Rheingau wines or see for yourself why Riesling is not only considered the grape of all grapes here.

The transport network

You can easily reach the other bank of the Rhine by ferry or enjoy one of the boat trips, including to the famous Loreley, which was already a well-known place in the Middle Ages, partly because of the striking rock as a landmark and partly because of the dangerous spot for shipping.

An extensive network of cycle paths takes you up to the Niederwalddenkmal and past the numerous wine villages up and down the river. The Rheinsteig, Rheinhöhenweg and Klostersteig trails wind along the house through an impressive and incomparable cultural landscape. There is a bus stop in the village or you can use our contact details for a local cab company.

Get up – have a leisurely breakfast and off you go!

Numerous farm trails through the romantic vineyards and along the banks of the Rhine invite you to explore by bike. The Rheinsteig and Klostersteig trails in the immediate vicinity offer the best opportunities for direct access to hiking happiness. Enjoy the magnificent viewpoints of the World Heritage Valley from its most beautiful side.

The so-called “King’s Stage” of the Rheinsteig offers a special challenge, as this is where the most kilometers and meters of altitude difference await. The stage from St. Goarshausen to Kaub is considered one of the most beautiful hiking routes in the Rhine Valley. The Loreley is only the most famous sight on this route, which is rich in natural and cultural treasures. However, the route is not for the completely inexperienced.
