All manner of gourmet delights will be on offer at this year's Rheingau Schlemmerwochen Festival, on from 26 April to 5 May. Vineyards and restaurants from across the Rheingau region – from Flörsheim on the river Main to Lorchhausen on the Rhine – will be inviting visitors to sample their local specialities. The fine food, wine and programme of cultural and musical entertainment make the festival a great experience for young and old alike.
The Rheingau region has a long tradition of wine-making, started by the monasteries many centuries ago.
A great way to explore the region is a walk on the Rheinsteig trail or a cycling tour on the Rhine Cycle Route.
