Hahn is a village 120 kilometers west of Frankfurt. It is mainly known for its airport that is used by budget airlines as an alternative to Frankfurt Airport. Most people travel straight on to that city, but did you know that the immediate vicinity of Frankfurt-Hahn Airport is also worth a visit? Hahn is located in the heart of the federal state of Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany's main wine region. You can make beautiful trips along castles, fortresses and ruins, and through the Rhine and Moselle valleys.
About 75% of German wines comes from the vineyards in Rhineland-Palatinate. There are various routes through the wine regions and throughout the year you can sample the best wines of each vineyard at the winegrowers. There are for example routes through the regions of the Moselle, the Saar, the Rhine and the Ahr (red wines). Most people consider the trip along the Moselle the most beautiful one. Along the way, you'll pass the medieval Bernkastel-Kues, about thirty kilometers from Hahn. The town straddles both riverbanks, at the foot of the ruins of the Landshut Castle. The charming area around the market square is made up of beautiful half-timbered buildings. Near the town hall there's a property that seems to balance on its narrow foundation, the Spitzhäuschen. The ancient town gate Graacher Tor houses the interesting Municipal Museum. During the first weekend of September the whole town goes crazy during the Weinfest der Mittelmosel.
Further upstream along the Moselle lies Germany's oldest city, Trier. The Romans founded it, which still shows. Its main attraction is the Porta Nigra, the oldest Roman city gate north of the Alps. The sandstone building houses a double church that goes back to the Middle Ages. The cathedral was built on top of the remains of a Roman wall and the Liebfrauenkirche is located on the spot where once stood a Roman church. The Romans had three large baths in the city: The Kaiserthermen, the Viehmarkt Thermen (on the spot of the Roman forum) and the Barbarathermen.
Karl Marx was born in this city. Nowadays his birthplace is a museum dedicated to his philosophy.
In a rental car you can make wonderful trips along castles and ruins. One of the routes through the Rhine Valley from Bingen to Koblenz is even listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Just on this 65-kilometer trip alone you'll come across more than forty castles and fortresses. Cultural events or medieval games are often held at these attractive locations during summer.
The Hunsrück Schiefer- und Burgenstrasse is also an attractive route along castles, churches and country houses. Here you'll also find impressive nature, for example in the vast Saar-Hunsrück national park, or the smaller Soonwald-Nahe.
Mainz, Rhineland-Palatinate's capital, will be forever linked with the name of Johannes Gutenburg, who invented book printing. In the Gutenberg Museum you can experience for yourself how difficult it was to print a book the old-fashioned way. And of course it also exhibits the famous Gutenberg bible. Mainz is still a city of media. It has an attractive old city center, but is at the same time a center of modern art. In the Museum of Ancient Seafaring you can see remains of Roman boats. Two of those boats are life-size reconstructions.
From Hahn Airport you can easily reach many destinations in Rhineland-Palatinate. The terminal is located right along the A50 highway. The center of many cities in Rhineland-Palatinate is entirely pedestrianized, but in most cases it is easy to find a parking space for your rental car.
Hahn lies right next to the Frankfurt-Hahn Airport, but not on the side of the terminal, which is located near Lautzenhausen, a hamlet on the south side of the airport.
