Event highlights in the Palatinate

Palatines are known for their joy of life. They appreciate their land and the fruits of nature, with which the Palatine region is so richly endowed. In their honour, numerous festivals are held all year round, heavily influenced by the zest for life, wine, and culinary delights of the region - from wine festivals to highlights of the international jazz scene at the Palatia Jazz Festival - all of which are accompanied by servings of the excellent Palatine wines.

Culinary events in the honour of the regional products

There are the Almond Weeks, also called Pink Weeks, as spring comes early to the German Wine Route, heralded by a sea of pink blossoms on the almond trees. Restaurants focus their menus on almonds, Neustadt-Gimmeldingen even celebrates its traditional Almond Blossom Festival, and the very first picnic blankets are spread under blossoming trees.
In autumn, the Palatine chestnut becomes the focus of the Keschde Week ("Keschde" being the dialect word for chestnut), held in the area of Hauenstein. There are Keschde tours, a Keschde market, Keschde bread, and even traditional sausages and other regional specialities made with chestnut.

Palatia Jazz

Palatia Jazz, an annual jazz festival held at historical venues, is one of the most high-profile event series in the region. Well-known artists from the international Jazz scene bring back to life old monastery walls and vineyards, fortresses and castles, accompanied by a culinary support programme by palatine vintners and restaurants.

Wurstmarkt - the world's largest wine festival at Bad Dürkheim

The Wurstmarkt in Bad Dürkheim is the world's biggest wine festival. It owes its atmosphere both to the exciting funfair rides and the unique Palatinate welcome. Excellent wines can be enjoyed.

German Grape Harvest Festival at Neustadt/Weinstraße

The German Grape Harvest Festival (Deutsches Weinlesefest) at Neustadt lasts for nearly two weeks. Highlights include the coronation of the Palatinate and German wine queens and Germany's largest vintners procession. The German Wine and Sekt fair allows visitors to compare products from all German wine regions.
