Sights & Attractions

Discover Hochheim am Main

The baroque church St. Peter and Paul greets you from high above the Main river in a predominant position - hiding an old historic little town with many refurbished half-timbered houses, narrow cobblestone lanes, and cosy wine taverns. This is the right atmosphere to immerse in Hochheim’s history and stories at a guided tour along with tasting local wines.

Additional highlights are the first wine museum in Hessen, Hochheim Art Collection, the Hochheim Wine Festival, and the traditional fair Hochheim Market in November.

We warmly welcome you …to experience and discover the wine and Sekt (sparkling wine) town of Hochheim am Main!

Four rural workers found the Madonna statue in a "Reul" (a narrow alley between two houses) in Wiesbaden-Biebrich in 1767.
