Welcome to the Southern Wine Route

The perfect place to visit

Gently rolling vineyards, culinary delights and outdoor adventures in the Palatinate Forest

The Southern Wine Route may be at the heart of Germany, but it has a mediterranean feel. This scenic region between the Palatinate Forest and the Rhineland Plain offers more hours of sunshine than anywhere else in the country. And besides the countless vines, you will also find figs, kiwis, sweet chestnuts and almond trees growing here. Picturesque wine villages with narrow, winding lanes give way to sun-kissed vineyards and mighty castles perched high up in the hills of the Haardt region. Spring starts early here and autumn lasts longer ‒ and the locals know how to enjoy it.
