Between vineyards and Roman villas: Hiking in Bad Dürkheim
The large Roman circular hiking trail leads once around Bad Dürkheim in about 6 hours. The highlights along the way include - in addition to a cozy stop with good wine - two Roman villas, a Celtic ring wall and the "Dürkheimer Riesenfass", the largest wine barrel in the world.
Hiking from Bad Dürkheim to the Felsenberg-Berntal nature reserve at the transition to the Palatinate Forest is an experience close to nature. It is especially beautiful here in spring and fall, when you hike between blossoming fruit trees or sun-drenched vineyards.
Bad Dürkheim: Explore culture and history
Another beautiful loop with cultural highlights leads to two of the most beautiful vantage points around Bad Dürkheim: In the midst of vineyards stands the flag tower, also called "Kaffeemühlchen", and offers a magnificent panoramic view over the vineyards south of the city. A hiking trail leads from here to the Zeppelin Tower viewing platform, which has been renamed the "Spiral Noodle" because of its shape.
One of the most worthwhile routes near Bad Dürkheim is the panoramic circuit to the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Höhe rock platform, which is rich in views and was carefully laid out by the Drachenfelsclub. The almost 5-kilometer-long circular trail offers several picnic spots and is also well suited for families.
Drachenfels & Co.: The most beautiful hikes in the Palatinate Forest
The highest rock in the Palatinate Forest is the legendary Drachenfels. In a good three hours you will hike in a beautiful circuit to the lookout point with dragon cave and dragon chamber. Two refreshment stops round off the hike.
From Leistadt you will discover even more rock formations with interesting stories on the "Seven Wonders of the Forest Trail". A particularly good physical condition is not required here; in three hours, about 300 meters of altitude are overcome. Other worthwhile trails can be found in Weilach, for example. A family-friendly walk leads to the Bismarck Tower and to the Heidenfels. You can stop for a leisurely meal at the Lindemannsruhe forester's lodge or at the hut on the Weilach before returning to the parking lot. The shortest loop with a nice place to stop for a bite to eat can be found along the path along the banks of the Isenachweiher pond.
