Rheinwalk at the Rhein Gallerie


Our hometown has a lot to offer! Culturally, Ludwigshafen scores points not only with numerous events, such as the Festival of German Film, which takes place every year on Ludwigshafen’s Parkinsel, but also with great programmes at the Theater im Pfalzbau or exhibitions at the Wilhelm-Hack-Museum. The museum is already a work of art from the outside: its striking design features a ceramic façade by the artist Joan Miró.  Ebert Park is within walking distance of the hotel and invites you to stroll along lush flowerbeds. The Maudacher Bruch, a nature reserve, is a wonderful destination for a bicycle tour. Rental bikes are available directly at the hotel at our Nextbike-VRN station. (Photo Rheinwalk by R. Beetz)
