Surrounded by vineyards, on the meadow bottom of the Modenbach, against the background of the forests of the Palatinate Forest Biosphere Reserve, lies the 1300-year-old Edesheim. In addition to the sandstone romance of the village, the tourist village also offers a former moated castle, now a hotel with a lake stage, the old post office and the village square around the church and the town hall. As a starting point for hikes in the Palatinate Forest, the Mühlenwanderweg offers an interesting connection to the network of hiking trails in the Garden of Eden, as the region around Edesheim is called. With a train station and bus connections, Edesheim is also ideal for bicycle tours leading to the Rhine plain or to neighboring Alsace. Winegrowing tradition and gastronomy, as well as mill romance make up the charm of Edesheim. The newly renovated outdoor pool offers cooling and relaxation even on hot days, with a sensational panoramic view of the Haardtrand.
