Pfälzer Weinsteig: An endless parade of wines and forest

Dionysian delights and untouched, deep forests - these are the greatest highlights on offer on your hike along the Pfälzer Weinsteig. The Pfälzer Weinsteig begins at the "house of the German Wine Route" at Bockenheim, and ends after around 172 kilometres in Schweigen-Rechtenbahn, making it the longest of the Palatine trails. The over 12,000 altitude metres to overcome in ascents and descents also makes it the most challenging of the regional trails. The route along the edge of the Haardt Mountains is dotted with ancient ruins of fortresses and gem-like wine villages, and offers spectacular views of the Rhine Valley region. The true charm of the trail lies in the alternating legs along sleepy forest paths and across the sun-drenched slopes of the wine country.
