It is not for nothing that our region is also known as the “Tuscany of Germany” and is one of the most popular travel destinations in our country.
The mild climate is characteristic of the beautiful Palatinate. Peaches, grapes, figs, kiwis and chestnuts grow here. And in spring the almond blossom glimmers in the most glorious rosé.
But it’s not just sun-lovers who get their money’s worth in the Palatinate…

There are great things to discover in the idyllic villages along the Wine Route: picturesque old towns with their history, golf courses, extensive cycling and hiking trails in the vineyards and the Palatinate Forest offer numerous outdoor activities.
For culture freaks and shopping queens cities such as Mannheim, Heidelberg, Speyer and Karlsruhe are on the bucket list in the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region.

What kind of person is the typical Palatinate?
As a sociable and cheerful person, he is a real foodie and connoisseur.
gastronomic diversity and the Palatinate wine have made a name for themselves far beyond the region’s borders. In excellent restaurants, rustic wine taverns and forest huts, as well as in numerous renowned wineries, one thing triumphs above all: the desire for life.
Reasons enough for a “time-out” in the Palatinate.
