The Assmannshausen wild herb trail guides the curious rambler through a unique natural and cultural landscape that is dominated by castles, vineyards and the River Rhine. The Upper Middle Rhine Valley has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The village of Assmannshausen, close to Rüdesheim, has long been renowned for its red wines. Now it is also home to a new experience created by Kräuterwind. The 8 km wild herb trail meanders through vineyards, such as the famous Assmannshäuser Höllenberg, ancient stone walls, lightly wooded forest fringes and meadows that provide a habitat for a profusion of species. The exceptionally mild climate of the Rhine valley offers favourable conditions for a rich variety of vegetation including herbs such as wild rocket, fennel or even French sorrel. Information boards along this clearly signposted trail help walkers to identify over 20 different wild herbs and provide interesting background information about their histories, uses and properties. The stunning panoramic views over the village and the Rhine valley transform this walk into an unforgettable natural experience. The gradients are categorised as easy to intermediate. The Kräuterwind restaurants in Assmannshausen are the perfect destination at the end of a day’s walking and serve dishes seasoned with aromatic herbs, local wines and regional specialities.
