Ruine Rossel

Niederwald, 65385 Rüdesheim

The “Rossel” is an artificial ruin situated at the Niederwald’s highest point.
The Rossel Ruin was erected by Graf von Ostein in 1774. It consists of a lightly elevated round tower and a rectangular building. The artful construct served as entertainment and landscape design in the sense of late Baroque garden culture.
The old walls offer a spectacular view of the mouth of the River Nahe and Binger Loch and are a popular resting place on the “Rheinsteig” long distance footpath.
