85 extraordinary kilometres. From Bockenheim in the north down to Schweigen in the south. Welcome to the German Wine Route in the Palatinate region! Here, woodland is intermingled with vineyards to create a unique cultural landscape. There are spectacular castles and palaces as far as the eye can see. An excellent network of hiking trails and cycle paths provides easy access all round. And fine wine and exquisite culinary delights are always on the menu. But at the heart of it all is the idea that we need to show respect and avoid wasting resources, even when enjoying time away from the daily grind. After all, we want to preserve this precious natural and cultural heritage for current and future generations to enjoy. And that’s why the German Wine Route holiday region has been certified as a Sustainable Destination since 2020.
Plenty of accommodation providers are committed to sustainability on different levels. Some have been following a dedicated strategy for a long time already. And others are still just starting out on their sustainability journey by becoming TourCert Qualified to demonstrate their sustainable intentions.
Between them, our partners shop local, rely on renewable energy, use biodegradable detergents, provide charging points for electric vehicles, hire out bikes and so much more. Plus, biodiversity, fair working conditions and other important issues are at the heart of their operations.
