Hans Walter is the hiking expert at the Wyndham Garden Lahnstein Koblenz Hotel. For years, he has been guiding our hotel guests through gorges, valleys and over rocks with great views. You are welcome to request his services at the reception. Walter is available for € 30.00 per hour for groups of about 40 people. Exclusively for our hotel guests, he has put together his favourite trail that leads over a part of the "Rheinsteg":
The Ruppertusklamm in Lahnstein is one of the highlights of the Rheinsteig. A small stream has dug the gorge about 2 kilometers deep into argillaceous slate and sandstone. At the most difficult spots, you will find stairs carved into the rocks, bridges or ropes to hold on to. 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. The trail starts off as a normal hiking path, but soon it becomes steeper and sometimes you will have to hold on to the ropes. On the peak, you will reach the, unfortunately closed, cottage “Ruppertsklamm”. The whole trail can easily be finished within more or less an hour.
