Current information - Rhine in Flames had to be cancelled

Due to the current situation and to curb the further spread of the corona virus, Rhine in Flames will unfortunately not take place on September 12, 2020. It is not yet clear whether the wine market will be held (as of May 27, 2020).



Night of a Thousand Fires - Rhine in Flames

Every year on the second Saturday in September

Once again, this Saturday is devoted to the “Night of a Thousand Fires”, as the huge firework display in Oberwesel is called.
It has become something of a tradition to wow spectators by synchronising a powerful and splendid firework show to music - a show that will leave you covered in goose-pimples.

Experience the fireworks in style from one of the many chartered boats that join to form a convoy for the occasion.


Extended ferry times:
Car ferry St. Goar/St. Goarshausen until midnight
Car ferry Kaub until 8pm – special night crossings from 1am to 1:30am

Next event:
Saturday, 11. September 2021

Programme is subject to alterations.
