At first, backpacking evokes a notion of adventure, wilderness, and remoteness in distant countries. With its easily accessible hiking trails and cabins, Germany does not readily come to mind, and let alone the Palatinate.
Nevertheless, since 2009 there are seven trekking places along the Southern Wine Route. Since April, 2013 there are seven places in the Donnersberg and Lauter region. Since end of March, 2019 place Number 15 with mattock stone in the administrative district rounds Südwestpfalz the offer. These camping sites, which can be used from April through October, officially allow you to spend a night in the Palatinate Forest Nature Park Biosphere Reserve. Not too far off the main trails, you will feel as if you are alone with deer and foxes in the wild.
