The Southern Wine Route may be at the heart of Germany, but it has a mediterranean feel. This scenic region between the Palatinate Forest and Rhineland Plain enjoys more hours of sunshine than almost anywhere else in the country. And besides the countless vines, you will also find figs, kiwi fruit, sweet chestnuts and almond trees growing here. Picturesque wine villages with narrow, winding lanes give way to sun-kissed vineyards and mighty castles perched high up in the hills of the Haardt region. Spring starts early here and autumn lasts longer ‒ and the locals know how to enjoy it.
The Southern Wine Route is a place where everyone can spend a relaxing holiday. Discover the regal splendour of Villa Ludwigshöhe in Edenkoben, which is scheduled to offer disabled-friendly access from summer 2018. Relax and unwind at the Südpfalz thermal baths in Bad Bergzabern or go on safari at Landau Zoo for a day of adventure. If you are looking for an interesting but easy walk, why not try the Biblical Wine Trail at Kirrweiler, which also has an audio tour for those who are blind or visually impaired.
In the Palatinate, we love celebrating ‒ most of all in the company of visitors. The accessible wine festivals are a particular highlight. Detailed and verified information on accessibility is available for selected events.
