Breuer's Rüdesheim Castle

Breuer's Rüdesheim Castle

In one of the most beautiful cultural landscapes in Germany, the "Rheingau" and the gate to the UNESCO World Heritage Upper Middle Rhine Valley in Rüdesheim, our hotel is located between the quiet "Steingasse" and the lively "Drosselgasse". Since 1952 we, the Breuer family personally, have been running this traditional wine inn. Today our 4-star wine hotel in the former "Zehnthof" is characterized by wine, art and design. The 26 hotel rooms are individual, modern and furnished with love. The views from the large rooms and spacious bathrooms to the vineyards and the historic town are particularly beautiful.
