German Wine Route

Ludwig I is said to have called the scenery along the German Wine Route “God’s Own Garden" and for this reason he had a summer residence built there, the Villa Ludwigshöhe built high above Edenkoben.  Even today visitors can enjoy the picture-perfect scenery along the approximately 85- kilometer-long German Wine Route, the oldest tourist wine route in the world.  From the wine gate in Bockenheim in the North until the wine gate in Schweigen-Rechtenbach on the French border, quaint wine-producing villages are strung along next to each other like pearls on a necklace, through a sea of vines, past castle ruins, palaces and manors.  The selection of pubs and restaurants seems just about endless and you can’t make a mistake in deciding for one over the other.  Protected by the sandstone hills of  Haardt Rim not only wine, but also lemons, almonds and kiwis thrive here.  No wonder that the region is called the Tuscany of Germany.  But if you want to be exact,  is the Palatinate of Italy!
