Holiday Program

A cordial welcome to the Papa Rhein! Enjoy an easy and casual time-out in our beautiful Chrismassy ambiance. Take time to arrive and to get to know our place. Later you will enjoy a welcome aperitif in our Bootshaus Bar where we will start a walk to a typical winery from Rhine-Hesse. A small wine-tasting session is waiting there for us and we will fortify ourselves for the way back with plain fare.

Friday, December 24, 2021 - Christmas Eve

After having enjoyed a vitamin boost for breakfast you have the choice: Relax at the Harbor Spa, get active using our TechnoGym sports equipment or go jogging along the Rhine? In the afternoon we will get attuned for Christmas Eve with DJ Frank at the turntables. Our barkeeper Benedikt will mix winterly cocktails and under the Christmas tree will be gifts for all.

Optional: Visit late in the evening the Christmas mass in the church of Bingen.

Merry Christmas! On Christmas Day we will have a feast! Our super cook Nils Henkel and his team will do magic creating a festive and extra class multi-course dinner at our restaurant BOOTSHAUS.

On this day we will have a walk through the forest of Bingen. The evening will again be festive and full of atmosphere: Oliver Schneiß will entertain you with the sound of his guitar at the hotel bar after having spoiled you with a set meal at the BOOTSHAUS.

Relax at the harbor spa! Today we extend the opening hours and invite you to a sauna night with Christmas-scented aromas until midnight.

Hundreds of candles will lead the way to the oasis of relaxation.

Our master chef will spoil you in a decent and understated way with his creative finger food. The drink menu he creates offers corresponding drinks for the Christmas and Winter season.

New year’s warm-up! We will start the farewell of 2021 and will be looking forward to the year to come with a dynamic and powerful yoga session and power training in our fitness room.

Typical for Rhine-Hesse! „Weck, Wurscht un Woi“ meaning roll, sausage and wine!

We reach the winery Hennes in Bingen after a short hike and have a placid wine tasting there. The wine maker presents his wines and we have a snack typical for Rhine-Hesse: Pork sausage, flavored cream cheese and rolls.

In the meantime our young pastry cooks are at work at the Papa Rhein: We bake cookies with the kids.

And Oliver Schneiß will entertain you once again with the sound of his guitar.
