Cultural Highlights and Surprises on your Bike Tour in the Palatinate

Southern Germany, more specifically the Palatinate region, has something to offer for everybody. Those who are looking for some peace and quiet can relax in the nature parks of the Palatinate forest. If you are looking for more of an adventure, then you will enjoy yourself in the Dahner Rockland. Those gourmets among us will no doubt want to spend a bit longer on the German wine road. With a Eurobike bike tour, you can get to know the area through all of your senses. The Mediterranean climate between the Neckar and the Rhine means that there are lots of particular sweet fruits ready for harvest even in the early summer. Exotic fruits such as kiwis and figs are already growing in the Palatinate region even when in other places nature is only just awakening from its winter sleep.
