Blick auf den Heinrich Heine Blick

Heinrich Heine Blick

55422 Bacharach

The exposed vantage point is located at an altitude of 214 metres on the edge of the slope to the Rhine, north of the Steeg valley incision. From there, looking south, there is a magnificent view of the town, the ruins of the Werner Chapel, Stahleck Castle and the meandering course of the Rhine as far as the Lorcher Werth, the Rheinisel before Lorch.

Towards the north, one looks down on the Bacharach Rhine island "Heylesen Werth" with its famous Riesling vineyard. The name of the vantage point pays tribute to the poet Heinrich Heine, who wrote about the history of anti-Semitic worship of Werner in his novel fragment "The Rabbi of Bacherach". An information board further describes that in 1933 the National Socialists erected a ten-metre-high swastika on what was then called "Hitlerhöhe". The vantage point can be reached from the town centre via an ascent along the RheinBurgenWeg (Orionsteig) to the north, in the direction of Oberwesel.
