Today, the last stage awaits you on the magnificent herb and beet bike path through the sunny Palatinate. It is also the shortest of the three stages and so you can take a lot of time on the way to enjoy the picturesque landscape and be pampered with regional delicacies in the wine taverns and court cafés.Behind Offenbach an der Quaich colorful fields await you again, spreading like a big patchwork carpet in front of you. From the slightly higher points you can enjoy a beautiful view over the flat landscape to the hills of the Palatinate Forest. You drive through Hexheim and then cycle through two small woods to Kandel. Here you can take a break surrounded by pretty half-timbered houses and stop in one of the cozy cafes or restaurants.Freshly fortified, you then cycle past fields and meadows, farms and villages. Shortly before the destination, you will once again enjoy the grapevines that line the cycle path in long, dead straight rows. So the Palatinate country idyll accompanies you to Schweigen-Rechtenbach, the destination of the tour. Here at the German Wine Gate, the counterpart to the house of the German Wine Route, ends the herb and beet cycle path.If you are in the mood for even more enjoyable cycling in the Palatinate, you can simply drive from here to the bike path German Wine Route back to Bockenheim. Otherwise, you have the opportunity from the approximately 2.5 kilometers away neighboring Wissembourg in France by train to travel home.
