Overview

Bingen Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Romantic, historical, villa art nouveau, view at the rhine, jacuzzi, sauna

Close to the train station Bingen-Stadt (town) lies the Villa Kappes, a multifunctional building that can be used not only as a holiday domicile, but also as a congress centre. The owner Inge Kappes - an architect- arranges this jewel of the art nouveau, built in 1908-10 by the famous master builder Dominikus Böhm and J. Weiß, after her own made principles – free of environmental burden and electromagnetic pollution. For every occasion the Villa Kappes offers suitable rooms and professional support. For recreation the guests enjoy the atmosphere of the Rhine Valley and the unique view. Art and antiques decorate the rooms and create and exclusive ambiance that invites to linger here. The villa is situated in a quiet area at the side of the garden and close to downtown.

Nordic walking: Nordic walking is popular and healthy. More and more people practice this moving concept for staying in shape. Nordic walking – the new top sport – is now being established in Bingen, too. Fitness and health have a growing part in tourism. The town of Bingen supports this by establishing a Nordic walking park. It offers diversified routes in a lovely landscape. At the Rochusberg-routes (400 m behind the Villa Kappes) you can walk through meadows, forrest and vineyards, along with fantastic views of the Rhine valley and Rhine Hesse. The routes in the Binger forest lead amongst others along an adventure path and grant lots of fresh and healthy air.

Excursions: Bingen is an ideal origin for excursions to all directions. In the perimeter of a one hour driver there is a vast amount of destinations that can easily be reached by tram, too. In the Northwest lies the romantic Rhine Valley , the Valley of Loreley. Castles, palaces and museums along the river, up to Koblenz at the confluence of Rhine and Moselle, attract tourists constantly. Very close in the south Worms, Speyer and the Palatinate are situated. In the East there are Mainz, Wiesbaden and Frankfurt, in the West the spring fountains Bad Kreuznach, Bad Münster, St.-Ebernburg and Bad Sobernheim as well as the ivory town Idar-Oberstein. Diversified landscapes open up all around town. Rhine Hessia, the Hunsrück between Nahe and Moselle and the Rheingau on the right to the Rhine – all of these make multifaceted destinations.

The valley of Loreley: At the same side of the Rhein as Bingen, down the river, ist the castle Rheinstein, one of the most beautiful castles at the Rhein. Built in 1990/1991 and fully renovated, the annex served as stronghold for the archbishops of Mainz in the 14th century. Only a few kilometres further one can find the castle Reichenstein, built before 1215 and therefore one of the oldest stronghold at the Rhine. The castle museum includes Rheinland-Pfalz’ largest stove plate collection as well as 1200 hunt trophies from 4 continents. On the right side of the Rhine, directly across from Bingen there is the ruin Ehrenfels, former duty castle of the archbishops of Mainz and in the medieval times depository of the Dom treasure of Mainz. One of the most beautiful excursions starting from Bingen leads to the Loreley. The cliff of 132 m that sticks out steeply of the Rhine at St. Goarshausen should be discovered by ship.

Wonderful Christmas Holiday Vacation

  • 5 of 5
The Rhine Suite at Villa Kappes was a wonderful place to spend a few days vacationing along the Rhine. Ms. Kappes met us and told us all about the area and local attractions. She even gave us a delicious homemade Fig Marmelade. The Suite was very large and provided plenty of space for my family (including three young children). The Edeka grocery was a two minute walk, and there were restaurants within easy walking distance (my three year old had no problems). Rudesheim is directly across the Rhein river and we greatly enjoyed the Christmas Market and sites...always a great town to visit. The train station is about five minutes away by foot and offers transportation to anywhere in Europe. We had a very nice trip to the medieval fortress town of Koblenz and thoroughly enjoyed being able to travel despite a deluge of snow. A great place to stay with a wonderful hostess.

A Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed in the Rhine Suite along with our daughter and her friend and enjoyed our stay to the utmost. The amenities were excellent (in particular the jacuzzi after a long day of hiking). The Rhine Suite is a large and spacious apartment but the way it's divided up, our girls could have their privacy if they wanted to stay up later and my wife and I could have ours if we chose to turn in early. Our hostess (Frau Inge Kappes) was a wonderful lady and made us feel quite at home. My German language sills are atrocious but Frau Kappes spoke perfect English (and French as well I believe). Our transportation was a set of Deutche Bahn passes so being just a short walk to the train station was a real plus or just a little further down the street we could catch one of the KD Line river boats. Bingen is a pretty town and just about everything was within a short walk from our apartment. While it might seem like a trivial point, I wanted to mention that the beds were very comfortable...all you have to do is stay some place where they're not to truly appreciate this. There is also a nice kitchen with dishes and everything you need and a grocery store is 10 minute walk. There are plenty of little cafes and pubs for dinning out and we always found good food and service. In short I guess the best recommendation I can give is to say that when we return to Bingen (which we will some day), I hope the Rhine Suite is available because we would definitely stay there again.

Wonderful stay with character

  • 5 of 5
The property is impressive from the outside. It had been delicately decorated for Christmas, with angels and a 7 metre Christmas tree in the staircase. Years of art and history lay hidden within those walls. Tha sunshine apartment is well eqipped, comfortable, and convenient. Lots of hot water and spotlessly clean. Only drawback is that you have to go up two flights of stairs, but the wonderful ceiling on top capped our way up with dignity. Ms Kappes is a very agreeable lady and presented us with a jar of wonderful homemade marmalade made of figs, apple and wine, a treat for our five- night stay. Supermarket is across the street! And you can get fresh bread and groceries from early in the morning.. Good restaurants can be found in the area and we could easily take the ferry to cross the Rhine and enjoy the Christmas market in Rudesheim, besides the monastery and St. jakobikirch's organ and choral service. The owner is very knowledgeable and recommended places to visit and nice restaurants. Our car could be parked within the villa's grounds. Bingen is a very good base for the romantic Rhine route. Villa Kappes is a hidden gem on the banks of the Rhine!

Es war einmal...

  • 1 of 5
Wir waren über Silvester in der Villa und hätten gerne auf dem Absatz wieder kehrt gemacht wenn wir das Geld nicht schon überwiesen gehabt hätten. Wir waren entsetzt über den Zustand der Villa die wohl ihre besten Zeiten hinter sich hat. Es fing mit der Hofeinfahrt an, die ungepflegt war und ging im Treppenhaus mit einem riesigen Wasserfleck weiter. Durch den Fleck bröckelte dann der ganze Putz herunter. In der Wohnung selber (Domizil Sonnenschein) gingen wir dann wie es so nach langer Autofahrt üblich ist auf die Toilette und sahen das Wasser über die Fuge zwischen unseren Füßen herlaufen. Das nächste was wir entdeckten war der Schimmel in den Kühlschrankritzen. Nach einem Gespräch mit der Vermieterin sollten wir dann die Rheinsuite bekommen die laut ihrer eigenen Aussage nicht staubgewischt war. Das war leider nicht alles, brauner Fleck im Marmorwhirlpool, Schimmel in der Dusche und so weiter... Fazit war dass wir ein wenig Geld wieder bekommen haben, früher abgereist sind und uns alle einig waren: "Was ist es doch schön Zuhause zu sein!"
Schon traurig wenn man sich auf einen entspannten Start in´s neue Jahr freut!

Schöne Zeit am Rhein

  • 5 of 5
We have had a real nice stay in villa Kappes. The owner gave us a warm and friendly welcome. We found ourselves totally at ease In "Sonnenschein", with its large rooms, maximum comfort and tasteful decoration. The villa lies in a centric emplacement and enjoys a splendid view. The town has a quiet and pleasant atmosphere, the landscape is of a stunning beauty, and the area offers plenty of interesting excursions within 100-120 km. I cannot think of a better quality-price relation.

We would strongly recommend Bingen and Villa Kappes for a relaxed and enjoyable holiday.

Bingen at the Rhine across from Rüdesheim, close to Mainz and Wiesbaden, 60 km from Frankfurt/Main – worth seeing, diversified, interesting at the romantic Rhine and gate to the world cultural heritage. Known to the world is the Binger Mäuseturm. Romantically it is enthroned in the middle of the Rhine and marks the Binger whole that is not dangerous for the ships on the Rhine anymore. Go on discovery. Varied and full of contrasts Bingen presents itself today. Between Rhine Nahe on on side and Kloppenberg and Rochusberg on the other the town Bingen evolves. The Drususbruecke, one of Germany’s oldest stone bridges, or the medieval Rheinkran make the past alive. The Villa Kappes is situated straight across the Rhine from the Germania (benchmark). It is 300 m away from the train station Bingen-Stadt, 800 m away from the landing stages of the touring ships and 900 m away from the pedestrian area.
