Klingenmünster has 2,400 inhabitants and is part of the municipality of Bad Bergzabern in the Südliche Weinstraße district. The village is located directly at the transition of the Palatinate Forest to the Rhine plain, surrounded by vineyards. The nucleus of the village was the once important Benedictine abbey "Clinga Monasterium", which is one of the oldest abbeys in Germany. High above Klingenmünster towers majestically the Staufer castle Landeck and accessible via hiking trails, the castle ruins Heidenschuh and Schlössel can be explored.
Klingenmünster is an attractive residential community, which is strongly influenced by tourism, with very good opportunities for recreation. Due to its location between forest and vineyards, Klingenmünster attracts numerous recreation seekers with its numerous excursion possibilities, wine, hiking trails and mild climate.
