Pfalz Wine Tour - based in one hotel

Leisurely through Vineyards and the Rhine Valley.

The Palatinate is the second-largest wine-growing region in Germany, blessed with an almost Mediterranean climate and numerous hours of sunshine. Therefore, you can even take the centre-based tour in southwestern Germany from the beginning of April to October. Every season has different surprises – like the blooming flowers in spring, mild evenings in summer and the grape harvest in autumn. By the way, wine is omnipresent on this cycling holiday, be it a wine tasting, a walk through the wine villages of Wachenheim and Deidesheim or cycle paths through the vineyards.

Details of the Palatinate wine tour

The seven-day cycle tour, starting from Bad Dürkheim, leads over idyllic paths through the Palatinate. Forests, meadows and vines alternate and bring variety to the daily stages. The cycling holiday programme is just as varied. Let yourself be pampered with culinary and cultural delights – for example in Speyer, the secret German wine capital Neustadt or in Edenkoben.

Highlights of the cycle tour in the Palatinate at a glance:

  • 4-star spa hotel Bad Dürkhiem: You sleep in the former castle of Leiningen with free use of the wellness area. Enjoy the sunny hotel terrace in the evening.
  • German wine route: With 1,800 hours of sunshine a year, the climate on the German Wine Route is almost reminiscent of that of the Mediterranean countries. You can look forward to extra sunny cycling fun!
  • Wine tasting in the Fitz-Ritter winery: In the excellent winery in Bad Dürkheim you can taste five wonderful wines on the last day of your cycling holiday – included in the travel price.
  • Culture on the Rhine: Culture is not forgotten on this trip in the Palatinate. Above all the cathedral of Speyer, the French fortress Landau or the medieval castle Neuleinigen.

Useful information about cycling holidays in the Palatinate

You spend the first day comfortably in Bad Dürkheim with the bike handover and a short walk through the old town, which is only a few steps from your hotel. The daily stages always start and end in Bad Dürkheim and are between 20 and 85 kilometres long. You cycle over hilly terrain with short climbs. In the Rhine Valley the routes are flat.

Itinerary

Tour information and bike fitting. It’s just a short walk to the old town and the beautiful spa park, which invite you to take a visit.

Today's stage is devoted to the Pfaelzer wines. The bike tour will lead you through vineyards and wine villages to the secret German wine capital Neustadt. Through the most beautiful wine villages of the Northern Wine Road, Wachenheim and Deidesheim you will cycle back to Bad Dürkheim.

First, the route runs along the river Rhine. Following the Old Rhine arms you will soon reach the old imperial city of Speyer. The Cathedral and the art museum should be visited in any case before you will cycle through the Böhler forest and on the Kaiser Konrad bike trail back to your hotel. You can also go by train from Speyer back to Bad Dürkheim (optional).

Also on today's stage you will find many romantic wine villages on the way. St. Martin is like a picture book town and Edenkoben even was a summer residence of Bavarian kings! Romantic in this area is also the wine road leading up to the French fortress of Landau. Return journey by train on your own (costs about € 9, - including bike).

After a short bike ride, you will soon reach Freinsheim with its baroque town hall. Then you will continue via the winery town of Grünstadt to the medieval castle Neuleinigen. The ones who want to cycle up the slope to the castle can then strengthen themselves again in the castle tavern and enjoy magnificent views. The tour will continue through the vineyards and back to Bad Dürkheim.

On the last day of cycling, the local wineries are on the agenda. Not only the biggest wine barrel in the world is an attraction, also the view is spectacular and many a cosy place invites you to stay. Back in Bad Dürkheim, we have already organized a wine tasting event for you at the winery Fitz-Ritter.

Tour character

In the vineyards, you will ride your bike on hilly terrain with some mostly short climbs. In the Rhine plain you will cycle a flat route. You will find yourself primarily on bike paths and country roads, which are mostly paved, and on easily accessible nature paths, sometimes you will also cycle shorter sections on rough gravel.

Die Pfalz, ein schönes Ziel für Genussradfahrer
Gut ausgearbeitete Touren rund um Bad Dürkheim, nicht zu schwierig und nicht zu lang für Freizeitradler. Viele sehenswerte Orte und Dörfer. Besonders hat uns die Fahrt nach Neustadt an der Weinstraße, bei herrlichem Wetter, gefallen.

Sehr schöne Gegend, tolles Hotel, idylissche Dörfer und Landschaft - nur sind ein Paar von den Tagesfahrten sehr ähnlich, auch weil man teilweise auf dieselben Routen fährt. Aber alles im allem - sehr toll.

Pfalz - eine weinselige Gegend mit schönen Fahhradrouten und sehenrwerten Städten
Dank den zugestellten GPS-Daten war es für uns kein Problem, die vorgegebenen Routen zu finden. Selbst bei Umleitungen fanden wir wieder auf die markierte Route zurück. Wunderbar war die Tour nach Speyer. Die Tour "Weinselig am Weg nach Landau" haben wir ausgelassen, dafür die Tour "Weinreben und Winzer" andersherum nochmals gefahren und uns die schöne Innenstadt in Neustadt zu Gemüte geführt.

Super Radurlaub
Die Farten in den Weinbergen. Die Radwege sind sehr gut ausgesucht und auch in sehr gutem Zustand. Uns hat eigenlich alles sehr gut gefallen auf dieser Radtour. In den Städten sind die Radwege weniger gut teilweise sehr gefährlich.
Eurofun Touristik GmbH answered:
Sehr geehrte Frau Brischkowski, vielen Dank für das Feedback zu Ihrer Reise. Es freut uns sehr, dass Ihnen die Radreise gut gefallen hat und wir begrüßen Sie gerne wieder auf einer unserer Radtouren. Leider ist es durch die Infrastruktur nicht möglich die Radstrecken bei den Stadtein- und -ausfahrten zu beeinflussen. Wir bemühen uns sehr, die optimalsten und sichersten Wege zu den Hotels zu finden und hoffen Sie hatten keine großen Schwierigkeiten. Schöne Grüße, Joscha
