"Eichelberg" Hill Tour ("Hiwweltour")

Peak bagging fun in Rheinhessen. Imposing disused quarries, gnarly pine forests, and an expansive patchwork of meadows and areas under vines.
As well as leading hikers onto the “roof” of Rheinhessen, the “Eichelberg” hill tour also takes in an attractive mix of varied and undisturbed natural landscapes and well-managed cultivated landscapes. Several quartzite porphyry quarries provide insights into the area’s geological make-up. The idyllic and convivial wine villages of Frei-Laubersheim und Fürfeld with their half-timbered houses and the baroque and medieval history of Fürfeld and Neu-Bamberg round the tour off perfectly.
