Hans Walter is the expert at Wyndham Garden Lahnstein Koblenz Hotel for exciting hiking tours in the region. For years he guides our hotel guest through the canyons, valleys and over rocks with great views. You are welcome to request his services at the reception. Walter is available for 30 € an hour for groups of about 40 persons. For our hotel guests he set up a preferred hiking trail through a part of the Rheinsteig.
The Ruppertusklamm at Lahnstein is one of the highlights of the Rheinsteig. The small stream has digged the gorge on about 2 kilometers deep into argillaceous slate and sandstone. At the most difficult spots you will find stairs carved in the rocks, bridges built or ropes installed to hold you tight. But you should still be very careful when it is wet. The mossy rocks become very slippery.
The gorge is easily accessible from the B260 road. You access the gorge through a wooden gate. First the trail begins as normal hiking path, but soon it gets steeper you have to hold yourself sometimes with the rope. On the peak you will reach the cottage “Ruppertsklamm” which is not open for service unfortunately. The whole trail is easy to finish within about an hour.
