First Biblical Wine Hike of the Freinsheim Holiday Region on 18.06.2022
An entertaining, biblical hiking excursion with "heavenly" support from retired pastor Helmut Meinhardt and the three winegrowers' cooperatives of the Freinsheim holiday region.
The hike starts at the Kallstadt winegrowers' cooperative. As a welcome drink, a wine from the famous Kallstadt vineyard Saumagen will be served, accompanied by a hearty "Woiknorze".
The tour continues along the Riesling hiking trail through the Felsenberg/Berntal nature reserve to Weisenheim am Berg, where a well-deserved break for a snack is taken at the Sonnenberg winegrowers'. But before that, there is a tasting of a fine Weisenheim droplet.
Freshly fortified with a hearty "Palatinate plate" from the Fantasia Italiana restaurant (drinks consumed are paid for on site), the tour continues through the district to Herxheim am Berg to the local winegrowers' cooperative. Here, a wine from the Honigsack vineyard will be served together with hearty pastries.
The next stop will be the Herxheim castle garden. After visiting the Protestant church of St. Jacob, a "heavenly drop" from the "Himmelreich" vineyard is a must. To go with the wine, there will be a "heavenly biscuit". Of course, biblical facts and anecdotes will not be missing from Father Meinhardt's explanations, which will make this hike an unforgettable experience. Finally, with the "Palatinate Prayer", he will send the now slightly exhausted hikers off into a blessed, godly Palatinate evening. Return to Kallstadt via the Himmelreich and Burgundy hiking trails.
Parking is available in the car park at the cemetery and at the back of the Kallstadt winegrowers' cooperative, access via Weinstraße, towards the cemetery. Please do not use the car park directly in front of the winegrowers' cooperative (Weinstraße).
We recommend that you wear suitable clothing and sturdy shoes (walking sticks are also welcome). Please bring your own drinks for the walk.
