This time we dare to leave the protective surroundings of Darmstadt and plunge into unexplored territory in the UNESCO World Heritage Site Upper Middle Rhine Valley. We take the train from Darmstadt via Wiesbaden along the Rhine to Lorch, where the Rhine is flanked on both sides by steep slate rocks. From there we start our hike along the hiking trail "Rheinsteig". On the way through vineyards and forest paths we pass a lot of viewpoints and castles until we reach our destination Kaub after 12 km. There it's up to us to decide whether we look for a nice beer garden or take the way back to Darmstadt (expected time of arrival in Darmstadt between 6 and 8).
Remember to take enough drinks with you, especially water, but a wine would also be appropriate for the surroundings. A snack for in between is also important to gather new strength. Don't come in flip flops and maybe, just maybe, consider rain as a possibility in your planning... (like really refreshing summer rain though)
