Destination Germany 30 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall: the Southern Wine Route in the Palatinate region.
German wine country – a new generation of growers are taking wine to a new level. Thanks to the new, younger generation of vintners, the Palatinate region has won the hearts of wine lovers the world over. Since the Wall came down, the Palatinate has experienced its own transformation as a travel destination in Germany.
THE PALATINATE PALATE.
A trip along the Southern Wine Route is a must for anyone who loves good food and even better drink. There are countless cosy wine taverns that offer a memorable dining experience with a modern touch.
The Palatinate is mainly famous for its fabulous wines, of course. A total of 71 white and 52 red grape varieties are grown here, which is pretty impressive! The best approach is to ask one of the growers for advice and try the wines for yourself.
A WALK THROUGH THE VINEYARDS.
It’s all too easy to go overboard with all that fabulous food and drink, so a little exercise is probably a good thing. How about a stroll around the vineyards, for example?
If you feel like even more exercise, then a proper hike through the vineyards is just the thing. On the way, you’ll discover magnificent medieval monuments such as Trifels Castle.
