Welcome to Ihringen at the Kaiserstuhl
In the Rhine Valley, nature has created a small paradise: the Kaiserstuhl, home of famous wines. Situated on the sunniest side among the vineyards, you will find the wine producing community of Ihringen. With a very mild climate, Ihringen is the warmest place in Germany.
The history of Ihringen is closely linked to the one of its wines. Volcanic rock, a lot of sun, and the care of the vineyards by the winegrowing families are responsible for the quality of Ihringen wines. Guests will be treated to culinary delights at numerous wine parties and festivals. The region is also famous as a paradise for environmentalists. Almond trees are in full bloom during spring, and temperatures often near summertime levels. Naturalists and orchid enthusiasts, find at the Kaiserstuhl a veritable Mecca. Especially enchanting is the famous Liliental, an arboretum and forestry research center, with its meandering footpaths surrounded by numerous exotic trees from all over the world. Also at home here are rare animals such as the praying mantis, the emerald lizards and the local bird called the “bee-eater”. Lava rock, loess and volcanic stones cause botanical species to flourish which are more typical of the Mediterranean region, such as wild cacti and aromatic herbs. Besides the unique experience that nature offers, there are many opportunities for leisurely excursions such as biking on or around the Kaiserstuhl or its smaller companion, the Tuniberg. Whether boating on the Rhine or a visit to other localities in Baden or in neighboring Alsace and Switzerland, you won’t have a boring moment here.
