Almond blossom in the Palatinate

When the sun's warm rays and the first flowers herald the arrival of spring, a walk in the countryside is the perfect tonic after the dark winter days. In the Palatinate wine region, the almond trees begin to bloom, marking the start of what locals along the German Wine Route call the 'pink weeks' due to the profusion of pale pink blossoms. On 14 March 2012 – and other dates – you can experience the magic of the almond blossom with a small wine or chocolate tasting in the company of an expert walking guide.
