Restaurants & Wine Taverns

From Regional Classics to New Creations

The Southern Wine Route is not only known for its Mediterranean climate and excellent wines, it also has a creative gastronomic scene to offer. In addition to the wide variety of restaurants, with dishes ranging from sweet to savoury and traditional to experimental, the numerous wine taverns and wine taverns offer the opportunity to sample Palatinate classics such as Saumagen or onion tart. While wine taverns are usually open all year round, ostrich taverns are only allowed to open for up to four months of the year - especially in autumn, of course. Historically, the term "Straußwirtschaft" goes back to a decree issued by Charlemagne in 791, in which winegrowers were supposedly authorised to operate "Kranz" taverns, which are identified by a hanging wreath of vines or ivy. Especially after a strenuous hiking tour on the Pälzer Keschdeweg or the Pfälzer Weinsteig, you can fortify yourself here with simple, hearty dishes.

After a hike in the Palatinate Forest or through the vineyards, there are numerous picnic spots that invite you to linger. Whether a hike or a cycle tour through the Gäu and the Queich meadows: In order to enjoy the Southern Wine Route not only with your eyes but also with your palate, special picnic packages have been developed and put together with various businesses and winegrowers, which can be ordered in advance and then enjoyed at one of the numerous picnic spots.

Einkehren im Pfälzerwald

Urige Hütten laden zum Einkehren und Verweilen ein: Mit seiner Vielzahl an Hütten ist der Pfälzerwald nicht nur als Wanderziel, sondern auch kulinarisch einzigartig. Seit Anfang 2021 ist die Pfälzerwaldhütten-Kultur sogar Immaterielles UNESCO-Kulturerbe. Ganz nach der typisch geselligen Pfälzer Lebensart bieten die Pfälzer Hütten urige Einkehrmöglichkeiten für Wanderer – für eine passende Stärkung bei der Wanderrast oder als Ziel nach einer geschafften Wandertour. Auf den oft ehrenamtlich bewirtschafteten Hütten genießen Sie regionale Spezialitäten, wie Pfälzer Bratwurst, Saumagen, Leberknödel und Sauerkraut; aber auch Dampfnudeln oder hausgemachte Kuchen. Passend dazu: Weinschorle mit Pfälzer Wein.
