The Palatinate wine region: top for riesling

The easiest and most breathtaking way to explore the Palatinate wine region is along the German Wine Route. Geared towards visitors, the scenic route links numerous towns and villages associated with wine between Bockenheim in the north and Schweigen on the French border. It is the oldest route of its kind in the world, and cycle and walking trail versions of the German Wine Route allow you to explore the vineyards between the Palatinate Forest and the Rhine on foot or by bike.
