Rheingoldbogen

Hike along the Rhine Traumpfad Rheingoldbogen (Rheingold Loop)

Walk the trail Rheingoldbogen, along the tracks of the Romans and wine-growing, through varied countryside, past well tendered grape vines and huge hedges on to the Rhine plateau with ist fantastic views of the Rhine valley and the Rhine Loop of the Rhine.

Description of the Traumpfad Rheingoldbogen

From the starting point at the Brey cemetery, the path soon goes into the forest. Here, shafts give an open view of old water piping, laid by the Romans. At Brey’s sportsground a narrow path goes steeply upwards to a refuge hut with a great view towards the Rhine valley. Along soft forest paths the way continues to the Rhine plateau. Scarcely visible bumps in the ground hide magnificent burial mounds. The path curves round this area and reaches the old Jesuit monastery Jakobsberg, today used as a hotel with a golf course.

On paths through the forest the way continues downwards towards Peternach. The Traumpfad reaches the vineyards in the famous location of the Boppard Hamm. Here a panoramic view opens on to the biggest Rhine loop with a view of Boppard, Filsen and Osterspai. Lined by thick hedges, the path turns its back on the Rhine valley. The level plateau allows stunning views of the Marksburg Castle in Braubach that seems to be within reach. Over open fields, the path comes to the chapel dedicated to the Mother of God. The way now goes down towards the valley and along idyllic meadow paths down to the starting point of Brey.
