Petronella Cycle Route

The cycle route leads gently downhill from Bad Bergzabern all the way to Wörth am Rhein. Before setting off, you can recharge your batteries with a wellness treatment in the Südpfalz Therme spa. The “Cattle Line” then takes you to Kandel, where anyone of an adventurous disposition can have a go on a climbing course in the Fun Forest Adventure Park. Those who prefer a quieter life might enjoy a shopping trip in Kandel or a spot of relaxation in Wörth Bürgerpark, which also features a sculpture garden. Featuring flat paths, the Fun Forest, and an adventure playground in Wörth, this route has plenty of activities to keep the children entertained.


UFFBASSE! - Campaign for considerate coexistence in nature  

  • Be considerate when out and about - Always act with foresight, kindness and consideration towards everyone you meet along the way. This is especially true on farm roads where winegrowers, farmers and foresters work, even at weekends.   
  • Picnic & rubbish - Remember to bring a rubbish bag for the road and take rubbish home with you. Only use the furnished rest areas for breaks and picnics.  
  • Conservation - Stay on designated trails and avoid unnecessary noise when out in nature. Leave the forest at dusk at the latest to avoid disturbing the rhythm of nocturnal animals.
