At the foot of the rocky riffs of the Binger Loch (Bingen Hole), where the most romantic stretch of the Rhine, the UNESCO World Heritage Site Upper Middle Rhine Valley, begins, lies Assmannshausen.

The village is surrounded by vineyards which produce the best German red wines on the estates of Höllenberg, Frankenthal and Hinterkirch. On the opposite bank lies the ancient Faitzburg Castle, known today as Rheinstein Castle, looking as if it grew out of the rock. A chair lift takes you up to the Niederwald hunting lodge, from which a wonderful hiking path leads to the Niederwald Monument.
