From 1 March to 27 April 2014 the Palatinate region will be celebrating its Rosa Wochen ('pink weeks'). This annual festival, featuring numerous events and activities, is themed on the almond blossom for which the area is known. You can visit a whole host of events and festivals in the Palatinate region all year round, but the arrival of the almond blossom in March is one of the most highly anticipated celebrations. The swathes of delicate pink blossoms are a sight to behold and signify the end of the cold winter season.
Highlights at this time of year include the Rosa Leuchten (pink lights festival), the Gimmeldingen Almond Blossom Festival and tours on a vintage bus.
