Another good alternative is to stay in Idar-Oberstein, a small charming town on the train-route between Mainz and Dagstuhl, which is well known for its jewellery-mines, -museums and -shops, castle ruins and churches.


A further good option along the railway line to St. Wendel is the Hotel Vicinity, in Neubrücke/Nahe, which is situated 15 minutes before St. Wendel. Get off the train in Neubrücke/Nahe and walk about 3 minutes to the hotel.
