The Bergstraße – called strata montana by the Romans – reaches from Darmstadt to Heidelberg. At this place on a route of about 70km idyllic localities are stringed like beads, from which you can mostly enjoy a wonderful view from the Rhine plain through to the Palatinate. Or you take in the view of the idyllic and myth-enshrouded Odenwald.
This is where Bensheim is located, the largest and most popular city of district Bergstraße, picturesquely situated between the gentle hills of Odenwald and the wide plain of Hesse Reed.
