From the imperial palace "Charlemagne" up to the plateau of the Rabenkopf for imperial views as far as the Rheingau. A fine drop is waiting at the wineries along the way.
It was Charlemagne who brought the red wine to Ingelheim - and it can be hiked in its historical footsteps along the Kaiserpfalzweg: On the way are the Aula Regia, Heidesheimer Tor, Saalkirche and the museum near the Kaiserpfalz. Then it goes up into the vineyards. The highlight is the fantastic view from the Mainz mountain down into the Rhine valley. The wineries on the way and the newly opened wine cellar in Nieder-Ingelheim offer, to top it all off, imperial culinary delights for the spoiled palate.
The Menk winery and the Stritter winery are right up in the vineyards, so the hike can be combined with a wine tasting.
