This tour is conceived as a circular hiking tour and starts at the Alten Rathaus (Old Town Hall) in Rhens. From here the trail passes through the cattle gate of the medieval town wall over an uphill path to the Rhine plateau. Here it is rewarding to make a short detour to the King’s Throne, a monument of basalt rocks where kings in the Middle Age gave their oath of loyalty. A wonderful panoramic view of the Rhine from the Marksburg Castle to the fortress of Ehrenbreitstein makes an inviting stop. Then upwards along a footpath and narrow serpentines to the viewpoint "Lützelforst".
Passing the Jewish Cemetery, the trail becomes more relaxing and goes through open orchard countryside to the Holy House of St. Antonius. From here this Rhine hiking trail climbs through a mixed forest to the next hill and then winds downwards into the Upper Mühlental (Mill Valley). After a short steep climb, the Kriesenkopf of the Rhine heights is reached. The spectacular view of the Hunsrück and Taunus rewards the effort. Now the trail continues down through the forest to the gulley or narrow pass "Wolfsdelle" (Wolf’s Dell or Dingle), lined with old gnarled trees and on to the Lower Mühlental (Mill Valley).
The Nicolas Chapel on the side of the path is a reminder of an ancient fishing village. Continuing along a narrow path on the banks of the Mühlenbach brook the trail returns to its starting point. A great day excursion for everyone making a hiking holiday along the Rhine.
