By rail

Travel to Rüdesheim via Frankfurt central station (Frankfurt/Main Hbf) or to Mainz-Kastel (direction Wiesbaden) and take a taxi to the Jagdschloss Niederwald Hotel. At Frankfurt central station take the train VIA RB10 to Rüdesheim/Rhein (direction Neuwied). For Main-Kastel, take the S9 (direction Wiesbaden) and change to the train VIA RB10 to Rüdesheim/Rhein (direction Neuwied).

At Rüdesheim train station it is recommended to take a taxi as the Hotel Jagdschloss Niederwald is not located within the city of Rüdesheim but on top of the heights.


By car

Coming from Koblenz or Cologne. Take the autobahn A61, exit Bingen and take the ferryboat to Ruedesheim. Alternatively, take autobahn A61, change at "Dreieck Nahetal" to the A60 and drive in the direction "Mainz".
Change at "Dreieck Mainz" to the A643, in the direction "Wiesbaden, Frankfurt", cross the river Rhine and change at "Autobahnkreuz Schierstein" to the A66/B42, in the direction Ruedesheim.

Coming from Frankfurt airport. Take the autobahn A3 and drive in the direction Cologne. Change at "Wiesbadener Kreuz" to the A66, in the direction Wiesbaden.

The autobahn A66 becomes the B42 and leads you directly to Ruedesheim.
