… the wine village by the “Roman wall”. First mention in 877, situated on the right bank of the romantic Middle Rhine at the foot of the Westerwald.
Here at the start of the UNESCO World Heritage site Limes, natural and cultural experiences merge with traditional festivals and Rhenisch hospitality.
Old half-timbered houses, historical “Gertrudenhof” with chapel of the same name, recreated Limes-watchtower at WP 1/1 at the beginning of the Limes – caput limitis, Limes educational trail at WP 1/8.
Between Rheinbrohl and Neuwied
The Limes runs along the edge of the Westerwald, where the fort is partially in a well-preserved state. The original locations are well accessible via hiking paths such as the Westerwaldsteig, which is identical with the Limes Trail in Rheinbrohl/Arienheller. The most beautiful route stretches from Arienheller, along the palisade replicas and past the staged tower foundations at WP 1/8 in the direction of WP 1/9 on the Beulenberg.
WP 1/9 near the original location on the Beulenberg in Rheinbrohl was erected as an accessible wooden viewing tower.
Starting point of the Upper Germanic Limes on the right bank of the Rhine at the level of the Vinxtbach (border of the Roman provinces Lower Germania and Upper Germania) in the district Rheinbrohl. WP 1/1 was reconstructed with Roman quarry stones near the original location (Rheinbrohl).
