More than 10,000 visitors took part in the call of the German Wine Institute and voted for the most beautiful wine view for each of the 13 wine-growing regions on the homepage. The vantage point in Lorch on the Rhine came out on top for the Rheingau.
All of Germany's most beautiful wine views are higher vantage points that can be reached on foot or by bike as part of a hike and offer a spectacular view of the wine landscapes. This is united by the view from the small rest area below the ruin Nollig. It is one of the 40 castles, palaces and ruins in the World Heritage Valley. The seating area is located directly on the Rheinsteig, the premium trail from Wiesbaden-Biebrich to Bonn, and can thus be reached on foot or alternatively by bicycle via the wine-growing trails. Visitors can look forward to a phenomenal view of the Rhine. Between the shore and the vineyards, Lorch am Rhein squeezes in close to the flanks, which slope so steeply that one suspects when looking: the Schloßberg around the Nollig is something special. Whoever arrives here knows the answer to the question: Why is it so beautiful on the Rhine?
The election for the Most Beautiful Wine View took place for the third time after 2012 and 2016. In addition to the freshly chosen Lorch view, the view from the Rothenberg in Geisenheim and the view at the ruin Scharfenstein in Kiedrich may also bear the title. A clearly visible stele by the Mainz artist Ulrich Schreiber marks these special vantage points.
