Assmannshausen: Alte Bauernschänke


Assmannshausen is the only spot in the Rheingau that grows red wine, and its Assmannshäuser Spätburgunder, a Burgundy-type Pinot Noir, is very well regarded.


  • 1 Alte Bauernschänke, Niederwaldstraße 23, +49 6-72249990. Two old mansions converted into a hotel and run by a wine-growing family. Excellent food. About 500 m from the Rhine. €82-115.
  • 2 Rheinhotel Lamm, Rheinuferstraße 6, +49 6722 90450. Three-star hotel on the Rhine, very close to train station. Modern, renovated rooms, friendly English-speaking staff. Note that only "Comfort" and above rooms actually have Rhine views, while the "Standard" rooms face the train line to the back and can be quite noisy; ask for a quiet room, and they'll bump you up if there's space. €70-90.
  • Jagdschloss Niederwald (above Assmannshausen).
  • Hotel Krone Assmannshausen. 450 years old.
