In the centre of the photo is a vineyard hut with a slate-tiled roof. It is framed by vines and sits high above the Nahe valley, which is visible in the background.
Two women are cycling side by side along a narrow country lane that is lined with trees. The trees are at least 20 years old and behind them, on either side on the lane, are meadows.
The late-afternoon sun is shining on a vineyard. The branch of a tree cuts across the picture from right to left in front of the observer. In the middle of the picture is a gate. To the left is a vineyard that slopes down towards the riverbank. It belongs to Hornberg Castle, which means it is part of the world's second-oldest working winery. In the distance, the waters of the Neckar river glisten in the sunlight. On the far shore is another mountain ridge.
