Only 10 km south of Koblenz, on the left bank of the Rhine, Rhens has a varied and highly interesting history to offer. With the electoral assemblies and the "Rhenser Churverein" of 1338, German imperial history was written here. Even today, the many beautiful half-timbered buildings, the impressive town wall and the magnificent town hall bear witness to the great past of our small town. The monument Königstuhl, the good old parish church St. Dionysius, the witch trials in the "Scharfen Turm" as well as the Rhenser Mineralbrunnen made Rhens well known. You should therefore combine your visit to our town with a guided tour. The interesting standard guided tours in the old town bring you close to the history of Rhens in a historically correct and entertaining way and last about 90 minutes. But those who want to feel the "old time" more intensively will certainly enjoy a night watchman tour. Accompany the night watchman Johann Hüter on his way through the dark corners and alleys of the old town. Dressed in medieval garb, with halberd and lantern, he tells you about the history of Rhens. Or would you rather join a tour of the town by the town soldier Martin Eyssenhardt? In a tunic, with a sword or a battleaxe, with a helmet or a chain hood, he will go undaunted at your side during the city soldier's tour. On request, all tours are possible with a different sequence, route, time, content or additions, such as "spiritual" food. In cooperation with the tourist office of the municipality of Rhens, I can also arrange other things for you: events or celebrations within historical walls? No problem in the guest house Alt-Rhens! By the way: Our winegrowers and restaurateurs are experts and take care of your well-being. Rhens has a lot to offer! Let us surprise you! I look forward to getting to know you! Your Joachim Forg IHK-certified tour guide.
