Vacation rentals on the Lower Rhine

Holidays in the picturesque and scenically diverse region

With a vacation rental in Xanten you can visit the surrounding sights in the Lower Rhine region and have it not far to the impressive Xanten North Sea. In the city founded by the Romans you can feel the breath of German history. But a vacation rental in Kleve also offers you idyllic peace and quiet and numerous excursion possibilities, which ensure an unforgettable and varied stay. Numerous cycling and hiking trails await you in front of the door. But there is also a holiday apartment in Rees, with a fully equipped kitchen and a spacious balcony to linger on. Thanks to the proximity of your vacation rental to the Netherlands, you can also undertake a bicycle tour or hike in our neighbouring country.

Holiday on the Lower Rhine

Location and orientation

Take an active break at the Dutch border

The German region Niederrhein belongs to the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia and borders on the Netherlands. The region should not be confused with the natural definition of the Lower Rhine as part of the Lower Rhine Bight in the north. Geographically, however, the actual Lower Rhine area cannot be clearly distinguished from its neighbouring landscape. Moreover, the Lower Rhine region does not form a continuous cultural, political, historical or geological unity. In addition, the region overlaps with the Ruhr area. The core area includes the cities of Duisburg and Krefeld as well as the districts of Viersen, Wesel and Kleve. Furthermore, on the southern and eastern edge, parts of the cities Oberhausen and Isselburg, the district Heinsberg as well as the city Mönchengladbach belong to the Lower Rhine. Parts of Leverkusen and Mettmann as well as Düsseldorf only fall into the region in the broader sense. On the right side of the Rhine, the area extends at most to Monheim and the northern districts of Cologne and Leverkusen. To the left of the Rhine, however, you can take the Dormagen, Grevenbroich, Erkelenz and Heinsberg lines.

Travelers and Activities

Excellent region for an active holiday

The Lower Rhine offers its visitors one of the most beautiful and largest networks of hiking and cycling trails in Europe. On more than 2,000 kilometres the varied and well signposted routes lead through impressive landscapes. One popular route is the Rheinaue cycle route. Along the routes there are many bicycle rental stations, where you can rent a bike or buy accessories. You can hike along the Niederrheinweg, the Hirschkäferroute, Moorerlebnisweg, around the Krickenbecker lakes or from Duisburg to Walsum. The Lower Rhine, the Rheinaue and the Xanten North and South Seas also offer many opportunities for water activities such as swimming, canoeing, paddling, rowing, sailing, water skiing, jet skiing and fishing. Extensive golf courses are also part of the region's offer.

Shopping in modern shopping centres and regional shops

If you want to go shopping on the Lower Rhine, you can visit the CentrO in Oberhausen, for example. The largest shopping centre in Germany in terms of area accommodates more than 220 retail shops. The Kö (Königsallee) in Düsseldorf is also known worldwide. 48 shops with around 20,000 sqm of sales space and a high-quality mix of premium and luxury brands await you. But also the inner cities of Moers, Mönchengladbach, Krefeld, Xanten, Rheinberg, Rees, Emmerich and Kleve promise great shopping experiences.

Things to know

The best events of the carnival stronghold

For many decades, the people of Lower Rhine have been known for their carnival, the hustle and bustle of which has a long tradition especially in the south. However, the marksmanship is also widespread, as for example the well-known Schützenfest in Neuss proves. Various festivals have also established themselves, including the Viersen Jazz Festival, the Moers Festival, Haldern Pop in Rees, Duisburger Akzente and the Xanten Summer Festival.

Top 5 travel tips

1st trip to Duisburg

In addition to Düsseldorf, which is more on the periphery of the region, Duisburg is the largest city. Very centrally located, cheap holiday apartments offer themselves here almost to be booked by you as a starting point for exploratory tours and day trips in the whole region. Already the Romans recognized the beauty, but also the importance of Duisburg and so they settled here already in the first century after Christ. The cultural center of the city is the Theater Duisburg, but the absolute highlight every year is the Duisburg Carnival.

2nd Willibrodi Cathedral in Wesel

Due to its proximity to the Ruhr area, the Lower Rhine region was particularly frequently exposed to Allied bombing raids during the war, and in many places much of the old infrastructure was destroyed. The beautiful Wesel was rebuilt especially well worth seeing. All around the market square, the centre of the city, everything was lovingly restored and restored and so today the Willibrodi Cathedral with its five-aisled basilica and the richly decorated historical town hall facade is one of the most popular sights of the city. From Wesel, numerous excursion boats start both upstream and downstream along the Rhine.

3rd NatureForum

Nature lovers are best advised to rent one of the many family-friendly vacation rentals in Xanten. The nearby NaturForum of the island is located in the middle of one of the largest near-natural floodplain areas on the Lower Rhine. Take part in one of the many excursions and environmental education events, or visit the permanent exhibition AuenGeschichten with its focus on nature and flood protection.

4th leisure pool "De Bütt"

The leisure pool with the beautiful name "De Bütt" attracts especially families with children to the contemplative Willich. In addition to lots of bathing fun, you can experience numerous native wild animal species at close quarters in Viersen in the Süchtelner Wildgehege, just a stone's throw away. On numerous hiking and cycling trails you can also experience the beautiful region on your own and enjoy the landscape.

5th Kempen Castle

The Kempen Castle is located in the centre of the city of Kempen. It was built in 1400 and has been destroyed and rebuilt several times until today. Every year at the Martinszug a huge fireworks display takes place at the castle and lets the castle shine in its splendour.
