ABGESAGT: Triftfest



Once a year, the craft of drifting comes to life in Trifelsland. At the Triftfest on 30 June 2024 (10 a.m. to 5 p.m.), visitors can join in and watch and experience the forest and water up close.

The foresters vividly demonstrate what forestry work looked like over 100 years ago. The tour starts on the Triftweg towards the Woog. There, a tree is felled, the wood is transported down the slope to the water with a wooden sledge, thrown into the drift channel and drifted down the stream with the help of the dammed water. Participation is expressly encouraged in all activities!

The festival site is located in the middle of the Palatinate Forest near the B48 between Annweiler am Trifels / Rinnthal and Johanniskreuz / Kaiserlautern. There is an information stand, food and drink and a forest café with homemade cakes and tarts.

All year round, you can hike along the Trift Trail or explore the Trift facilities by mountain bike on Tour 11. Information boards provide information about the Trift and the Wooge in the Palatinate Forest.
