Local name: Deutsche Weinstrasse

The 85-kilometre long route starts with the Deutsches Weintor (German Wine Gate) in the in Schweigen-Rechtenbach on the French border, and crosses the Pfalz towards Bockenheim in the north.

It was really the Romans who initiated this route, and who brought the grapes to this region. But you can also learn all about the contemporary German wines, which are famous around the world.

You can follow the route by car, by bicycle, but also on foot – it’s up to you.
