Palatinate Hüttenzauber Forest Restaurants

The Palatinate Forest would be nowhere near as welcoming, least of all for all the hikers who drop in there, without the Palatinate forest restaurants, known as Hüttenzauber. A Palatinate institution, partly run by volunteers from the Palatinate Forestry Society or by the Friends of Nature. A hearty meal is always on the menu: Saumagen, liver dumplings, homemade Palatinate sausages or a hearty stew. 

Palatinate Forestry Society

The Palatinate Forestry Society is dedicated to preserving Nature intact. The results of its work include the natural and sensible organisation of leisure and recreation, a number of nature conservation campaigns in the Biosphere Reserve and an attempt to generate a sense of mutual understanding. This starts with the Palatinate Ramblers Association "German Hiking Youth" group, continues with family-friendly adventure hikes, monthly, teaching and OAP hikes as well as cycle tours and hiking weeks in Germany and abroad. ... read more
