The dreamy, idyllic village of Ransel is characterised by old half-timbered houses, the Parish Church of St Catherine and the Open-air Museum Ransel, where more than 400 hand tools, workshops, and agricultural machines from 1900 to 1970 are on display. Each Friday afternoon freshly baked bread, which was made in the museums own bakehouse, is sold on the museum grounds.
The rural vicinity provides peace and relaxation, diversified forest and meadow paths as well as extended hiking and mountain bike tours. Visitors can enjoy a wide view overlooking the Taunus and the Rhine Valley into Hunsrueck if the weather is fine.
The Kerb (funfair) is celebrated on the last weekend of August in Ransel, the open-air museum hosts the May and Brew Festival (Mai- und Braufest) on the first weekend of May, while the Culture and Fun Festival ("Kultur- und Gaudifest) takes place on the second weekend of July, the Autumn and Brew Festival (Herbst- und Braufest) on the third weekend of September.
