Until 1934 visiting multiple locations for a wine tasting tour was no easy task. This is until Gauleiter Josef Burkel realized that a singular road connecting the various villages that were producing wine would increase awareness and business for all of the wineries! Thus, the wine route of the Palatinate region was born and still exists today. If you happen to be traveling at the end of August, there is an annual festival, "German Wine Route Day", where all motor vehicles are prohibited from using the route to make way for the liberal pouring of libation, food and activities. While following the route you will drive through the Palatinate forest. A few points of interest are the numerous castles including Hambach Castle, Berwarstein Castle and Wegelnburg. Some have been maintained or reconstructed and others have been left to become ruins. The forestis also an excellent choice to stretch your legs during a hike on one of the many trails.
