Palatinate: Germanys sunny side
The most beautiful bike tours and biking trails in the Palatinate
Look forward to this multi-faceted holiday region with 5451 km² and 1.4 million inhabitants. The lovely Palatinate is bordered to the west by the Saarland, on the northwest by the Hunsrück, in the east it is bordered by the Rhine and in the south the French Alsace boarders. Through the middle of the Palatinate, the 85 km long German Wine Route runs with its picturesque vineyard landscape and many small winding wine villages. The Palatinate benefits from the mild climate, so that here exotic plants such as figs, lemons, kiwis and famous Palatinate chestnuts grow. The adjacent Palatinate Forest Nature Park offers together with the Northern Vosges Biospere Reserve more than 12.000 km of hiking trails, defiant castles and strange rock formations. The Rhine valley finally provides Altrheinarme with a particularly rich flora and fauna and vast fertile fields where asparagus, strawberries and tobacco are growing.
