The Pfälzer Weinsteig – A rendezvous of forest and wine

The "Pfälzer Weinsteig" is Palatinate pure: Alternating routes of the 172-kilometer total trail lead along dreamy paths through short forest passages and sun-drenched vineyards. The route begins at the northern edge of the Haardtrand at the "Haus der Deutschen Weinstrasse" in Bockenheim. Via Neuleiningen, Bad Dürkheim, Neustadt an der Weinstraße, Annweiler am Trifels and Bad Bergzabern the trail leads through many quaint wine villages and towns. For those of you whom hiking makes thirsty, you had best visit one of the almost innumerable top winemakers and uncork the bottle directly in one of the vineyards – nowhere else does a glass of Palatine wine taste better!

Many ruined castles, the Hambach Castle, the "Villa Ludwigshöhe" and the 673 meter high "Kalmit" offer delightful views over the vineyards across the Rhine valley. The "Weinsteig" ends as does the "Waldpfad" in Schweigen so that those undefatiguable can continue on a further trail. 

The Palatine wine trail is easy to reach by public transport. Directly from the train stations signs will guide you to the "Pfälzer Weinsteig".
