I'm Barbara in Germany (Mainz), and I'm interested in weather already for decades.

Hi everybody. I'm out for some time and locking the door. But I leave you some photos from a new little hike trail in Rhenish Hesse where I've walked some days ago. Enjoy, stay safe and bright! I'm looking forward to meet you again.
From Wikipedia: Rhenish Hesse or Rhine-Hesse (German: Rheinhessen) refers to the part of the former People's State of Hesse (previously Grand Duchy of Hesse-Darmstadt) located west of the Rhine and now part of Rhineland-Palatinate. It is a hilly countryside largely devoted to vineyards, therefore it is also called the "land of the thousand hills." Its larger towns include: Mainz, Worms, Bingen, Alzey, Nieder-Olm and Ingelheim. Many inhabitants commute to work in Mainz, Wiesbaden, or Frankfurt. ...
Rheinhessen is the largest of 13 regions producing German wine. Outside Germany, it is best known as the home of Liebfraumilch. Most is made from white varieties such as Riesling, Silvaner, Müller-Thurgau, Kerner, and Scheurebe. The best-known white wine area is the Rhine Terrace near Oppenheim and Nierstein. Some red varieties are grown, particularly around Ingelheim and Gundersheim, including Pinot noir, Blauer Portugieser, Dornfelder, and the recently established Regent.
Look-out Bismarck Tower near Ingelheim.
