… the wine village at the Limes (Roman ditch and rampart system). First mentioned in 877, the village of Rheinbrohl is situated on the right bank of the romantic Middle Rhine by the foot of the Westerwald. Start of the UNESCO World Heritage site Upper German-Rhaetian Limes, natural and cultural experiences merge with traditional festivals and Rhenisch hospitality.

Between Rheinbrohl and Neuwied the Upper German-Raethian Limes runs along the edge of the Westerwald. Some 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 the RömerWelt museum at Arienheller, along the palisade replicas and past the staged tower foundations and Limes educational area at WP 1/8 in the direction of WP 1/9 on top of the Beulenberg.
