Cultural historical buildings

As the name “Cultural Region of the Rheingau“ already entails, numerous cultural historical buildings draw visitors to the region.

Among these is the Brentanohaus in Oestrich-Winkel, which is still today in the possession of the aristocratic Brentano family. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Achim von Arnim, the brothers Grimm or the poet Karoline von Günderode were among the family’s guests.

The Grey House (“Grey House”) is also located in Oestrich-Winkel - the oldest stone house of Germany and formerly the ancestral home of the family von Greiffenclau – and the wine-loading crane can be found in Oestrich.

The Kurhaus in Wiesbaden is also worth a visit.
