Cycling in the Palatinate

The Palatinate region is a veritable treat for anyone who enjoys cycling. The cycling routes are as diverse and varied as the Palatinate countryside itself, from the heights of the Palatinate Forest to the Rhine basin. Yet they all have one thing in common: there are so many places to stops off at on both sides of the road, from wine taverns to high-end restaurants, all offering warm Palatinate hospitality.

German Wine Route Cycle Trail

The German Wine Route Cycle Trail runs parallel to the German Wine Route, taking in historical towns, vineyards and castles. Travelling through Germany's second largest wine-growing area by bike is the ideal way to experience the Palatinate way of life.
The famous wine town of Deidesheim offers Riesling and pinot noir accompanied by the new contemporary cuisine that is taking the town's gourmet restaurants by storm. From here the route leads south towards the French border, through a landscape reminiscent of Tuscany with its gentle vine-clad hills and pretty villages.
Neustadt with its magnificent historical centre, winding lanes and numerous taverns makes for an ideal place to stop off for a while. The German Wine Route Cycle Trail is not a race track though, it's much too beautiful for that. In spring, for example, almond blossoms cover the landscape with dashes of pink. From mid-April onwards all the fruit trees are in full bloom, and in the summer the trees are heavy with figs, kiwis and lemons. Autumn is the time for harvesting grapes and also sweet chestnuts. A pure delight!
