The Palatinate has been the absolute hiking paradise in the south-west of Germany for years now. Whether in the Pfälzerwald, the Palatinate mountainous area, the Weinstraße or the Rhine meadows. You will find plenty of opportunities to experience the Palatine's richness and diversity. Yet, one thing is alike everywhere you are: the Palatinate is unique in terms of culinary and food culture, whether it is a great place to stop in one of the 150 rustic huts or a fantastic dining experience in one of the starred restaurants. Quality and regionality is not a fashion phenomenon in the Palatinate, but have always been nurtured and cherished.

Our 12 day and half day tours offer you many possibilities and a huge variety. Fantastic nature, a great landscape, varied tours and cooking at the highest level - the Pfälzer hiking menu has something to offer for everyone.

The multi-day trips of the Pfälzer hiking menu can be found here: komoot.com/collection/349/pfaelzer-hiking-menu-multi-day-hikes
