    On the one hand, the southern start of the German Wine Route and, on the other, a relic from another time: the German Wine Route was invented by the Nazis to promote tourism.

    The 18-meter-high German Wine Gate is built in the neoclassical style. The hipped roof carries two poppy capsules of copper, which symbolize everlasting prosperity. The Weintor dates back to the time of National Socialism. The building was decorated during the Nazi era with a huge swastika flag, which was also seen in France, where it was perceived as a provocation. On the upper right side of the south side was the almost four-meter-high stone relief of an imperial eagle with a swastika in its claws. After the end of the World War, the swastika was cut off. Today the wine gate is also called "the house of the German wine route".
