Bingen Wine Festival

August 31, 2018 @ 11:00 am - September 10, 2018 @ 5:00 pm

In its sixty fifth year, the Bingen Wine Festival is the longest running wine festival of its kind held along the River Rhine. Visitors can expect to be celebrating, dancing and enjoying themselves all over the town.  With a firework display at Castle Klopp, the Bridge Festival on the River Nahe, concerts, winegrowers, entertainment, exhibitions and an amusement park – there is something for everyone. On the various stalls around the town, there’s a range of tasty culinary highlights available served with an accompanying wine recommended by local winemakers.

There will be a parade on Sunday at 1pm.

Bingen is situated in the beautiful Rhine Valley close to Rüdesheim. The town forms the southern limit of the UNESCO Rhine Gorge World Heritage Site. Bingen is aptly called the secret capital of German wine as the wine areas of Rheinhessen, Nahe, Rheingau and Middle Rhine meet here.  Bingen is also the birth place of ‘Eiswein’ (ice wine), a dessert wine. Today, more than 70 winegrowers farm on more than 531 hectares.

Its location makes Bingen an ideal starting point for walking along the Rheinsteig Trail  or cycling on the Rhine Cycle Route (EuroVelo15).

If you’d like to take part in a wine tasting tour in the Rhineland-Palatinate or Hessia region, I can recommend bottlestops.com.

 

I can highly recommend the wine bar WeinZeit, which is on the River Rhine embankment. I enjoyed the impressive view, nice meals and wine there a few times when I cycled along the River Rhine.
