The "Bismarckturm" probably provides the best view over the town one can get.
The construction works for this 31m tall tower began in August 1907 and were finished in May 1912; the architect was Professor Wilhem Kreis.
Hotel & Restaurant Multatuli, located outside of Ingelheim on a hill overlooking the Rhine Valley, is the place to go if you not only want to have a nice meal but to enjoy the beautiful scenery too. Thanks to the huge picture windows this restaurant provides an excellent view and if the air is clear you can even see the castles on the other side of the Rhine River. So don't forget to bring your camera! ;-)
Favorite Dish: On Sundays they offer an all you can eat buffet.
Actually Ingelheim doesn't have a real nightlife at all. However there are some places where one can have a nice, but rather quiet, evening. Popular "pubs" are the "Daily's" and the "Tresor". The so-called "Lockschuppen", which is a kind of "Biergarten", in Ingelheim Nord is also worth a visit, as well as the one at the "Rheinpromenade". For those...more

Fly into Frankfurt am Main, then hire a car at the airport or take the train to Ingelheim. In order to get around Ingelheim you have the choice between taking the bus or a taxi.
Each year towards the end of September, when the wine season starts, the red wine fest is held in Ober-Ingelheim. It lasts for a whole week and takes place in a really lovely setting: the Burgkirche "area". The Burgkirche is a beautiful old church and is surrounded by remainings of the former city wall. All the wineries along the way offer their wines and food and there are wine stalls everywhere. There's also a small fair and behind the fair there's a nice Strausswirtschaft where you can sit outsides!
On the 1st Sunday of the fest there's always a flea market along the "Bahnhofstrasse" and on the last Sunday there are fireworks at the Burgkirche!
The so-called "Jungau" at the Rhine River in Ingelheim-Nord is a popular place for biking, jogging or just relaxing and enjoying the beautiful view over the "Rheingau". Besides a fitness trail there's also a "Erlebnispfad" now which informs about the river, biotope protection, the floods and a lot more.
In winter, after the thaw in Switzerland, many towns along the Rhine River have to fight against the floods. Thank goodness Ingelheim does have some meadows, as well as a dyke (pictured) in order to protect the town from the floods. As far as I can remember nothing seriously ever happened but several years ago there were such heavy floods that...more

The town's only museum is the so-called "museum at the Kaiserpfalz" which houses information on "Karl der Große" and his stays in Ingelheim, the Pfalz of Ingelheim, archeological works in the area, ... etc. It's a very small museum though and thus you shouldn't expect too much, but if you're interested in the history of Ingelheim it's surely worth...more
