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.
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
