Rheinsteig_2

May 3 – 5, 2024

A long weekend just for women. Women who like to hike, laugh and exchange ideas with like-minded people. Whether as a short break from everyday life, preparation for the big mountain tour or trying out whether long-distance hiking is the right thing to do: hiking nearby is not only practical, but also climate-friendly – and eventful!

Round 2 for the Rheinsteig as a women’s tour – and this time it will be especially challenging and exciting on Saturday, in the middle of the tour! While the first and the third day are rather short and relaxed, the second day is quite challenging, both in length and in ascent. This is quite similar to the more demanding tours in the Harz mountains… only along the river Rhine and with great views all along the tour!

Here you can see how the last tour went.

Friday: Meet in Kestert, at the train station, time tbd. Approx. 4 hrs. walking time, 13 km, approx. 450 hm in ascent and descent. End of trail: Sankt Goarshausen, overnight in a simple hotel incl. breakfast.
Saturday: Sankt Goarshausen to Kaub via Loreley. Approx. 7 hrs. walking time, approx. 23 km, approx. 750 Hm in ascent and descent. Overnight in simple hotel, incl. breakfast.
Sunday: From Kaub to Lorch (train station). Approx 4.30 hrs. walking time, 15 km, about 500 Hm. Departure from Lorch.

The trail is mostly well prepared. In the towns at the beginning and end of the day we walk on asphalt, otherwise on unpaved trails. Each day, the altitude is distributed over several ascents and descents, so it goes up and down fairly constantly.

The Rheinsteig is one of the first premium hiking trails in Germany. It always leads along the right bank of the Rhine from Bonn to Wiesbaden. This weekend is dedicated to days 14 to 16 from Kerst via Sankt Goarshausen and Kaub to Lorch.

The tour has a train station as the start and finish points. We recommend travelling to and from the hike by public transport.
