Unfortunately your annual vacation is almost taken? No problem! The German Wine Route is only 85 kilometers long and can easily be discovered on a long weekend. The route leads – as the name suggests – through the wine-growing regions of the Palatinate. The three-day roadtrip begins at the German Wine Gate in the municipality of Schweigen-Rechtenbach, which is also known for its good wine taverns. From here you can continue through the Vorderpfalz, past historic and wildly romantic towns such as Bad Bergzabern or Gleiszellen-Gleishorbach. Absolutely worth seeing are also the Hambach Castle or the Wachtenburg, which can be discovered on this route.
Along the entire route, the best Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris as well as Riesling wines tempt you to test and stay for a while. Finally, the driver is allowed to enjoy a drop of good wine at the House of the German Wine Route in Bockenheim the latest.
By the way, this road trip is not only recommended for wine lovers. The region is regarded as one of the most sundrenched areas of Germany and guarantees the most hours of sunshine until late autumn.
