Rhens at the Rhine is not only a wine city, as one could assume from the Lahnsteiner heights, attractively spread on the bank of the river, which finally loses itself in the flanks of the mountain range to the Hunsrück:
History was written by the convention of the electors in Rhens called "Rhenser Kurverein".
The electors of the German empire met, to choose their king but also their emperor at the "Königsstuhl" (chair of the king) in Rhens.
The historically most important construction is the "Königsstuhl" (chair of the king). In the year 1400 "King Ruprecht of Palatinate" was elected here as the first German king. The following kings presented themselves on the "Königsstuhl" (chair of the king) and took an oath of loyalty from their vassals. Due to the settlement of the company "Rhenser Mineralbrunnen" the "Königsstuhl" was removed from its original location in the year 1929 - the today's Rhine pleasure grounds of Rhens - and was rebuilt above Rhens. There this contemporary witness can be visited today at any time and serves at the same time as marvellous lookout point over the Rhine Valley.
