You can visit various monuments of culture, such as churches, monasteries and castles, and you can celebrate on the many wine festivals, at the winemakers’, in wine houses and the so-called Strausswirtschaften, and of course in the renowned Drosselgasse in Rüdesheim.
Our vacation apartments are interesting for visitors or presenters at trade fairs in Frankfurt or Wiesbaden, by the way – we are well-connected with those cities by way of the A 66 autobahn.

Short History of Winkel:
A first mention of Winkel, then as “Winkela,” dates back to a document from 850 about a certain church St. Walpurgis, about which neither location nor building details are known. The settlement’s name later changed to “Langenwinkel” or “Winicella” before reverting back to Winkel. The Grey House is said to be the oldest stone residential building in Germany; it used to be in the possession of the lords of Winkel, called Greiffenclau, who can be traced back to the year 1191.
Supposedly, this house was the summer residence of the bishop Rhabanus Maurus of Mainz (around 856), an important Carolingian scholar. There are legends talking of how the poor were fed during a famine. The bishop’s monument is to be found in front of the parish church in Winkel.
In 1467, Richard von Greiffenclau zu Vollrads, later archbishop and elector of Trier, was born in Castle Vollrads.
Among others, Goethe himself was a long-time guest in the Brentano-House around 1814. It belonged to the banker family Brentano from Frankfurt.
The families children were Clemens, Gunda and Bettina Brentano. Bettina’s friend, the Romantic poet Karoline von Günderode (1780 – 1806) committed suicide on the banks of the Rhine in Winkel, desperate about a lost love. Many Romantic poets were regulars at the summer house of the Brentano family.
Old wine-growing areas of Winkel:
Gutenberg, Klauserberg, Erntebringer, Hasensprung, Dachsberg, Honigberg, Bienenberg.
The main grape variety is the well-known Riesling.
