Event highlights in the romantic Rhine valley

Find out more about traditional wine festivals, cosy christmas markets and other event highlights in the romantic Rhine valley.


Rhein in Flammen - Rhine in Flames

Experience summer nights full of magic on the romantic Rhine River: Along its most beautiful sections, five fireworks spectacles of the series Rhein in Flammen® (Rhine in Flames) are held each year between May and September. Bengal fire tints the riverside promenades and sights - most notably the many castles - a magical red, while festively illuminated fleets glide across the water against a backdrop of breathtaking fireworks in the sky. Here you find more information.

Middle Rhine Music Festival

The Middle Rhine Music Festival is held every year in summer, and livens up the entire Middle Rhine Valley. The event selection includes classical and jazz concerts, and offers musical highlights like performances of renowned solo artists, as well as philharmonic orchestras. Venues include fortresses, churchesand castles, as well as exceptional open-air locations. 

"Mittelrhein-Momente" culinary events

Vintners, chefs, and hosts along the romantic Rhine River create a colourful programme of culinary wine tastings, guided tours, dinner shows, and readings as part of the Middle Rhine Moments (Mittelrhein-Momente). 

Walking and cycling from „Tal to Tal“

Every year, cyclists and inline skaters eagerly await the “Tal to Tal” event on the last Sunday of June, when the roads on both sides of the Rhine are closed to traffic (from Rüdesheim to Koblenz and Bingen to Koblenz).

Central Rhine Wine Spring in the Boppard Hamm

When nature is just awakening and the sun starts to tempt us out with its warming rays, young Boppard-based wine-growers and chefs invite visitors to join them on a gourmet wine hike: the popular Central Rhine Wine Spring is held in the loop of the Rhine known as the Boppard Hamm from 10 in the morning until sunset. Along the route, select Boppard wine-growers and chefs present gastronomic delicacies from their kitchens and cellars. Walkers can therefore enjoy the wine where the grapes once ripened, right in the heart of the Central Rhine's largest vineyard. The Boppard Hamm wine-growing region is also the name given to the largest loop on the Rhine and provides awe-inspiring views into the valley.
