The Palatinate Almond Weeks, which run from the beginning of March to mid-April, dedicate numerous events related to the almond blossom to this natural colour spectacle. The region spoils its visitors with culinary delights and exciting excursions on foot, by (e-)bike or in a vintage bus with panoramic views. Outdoor enthusiasts will love the Palatinate Almond Trail during the almond blossom season. Like a pink ribbon, the hiking trail stretches 100 kilometres from Bockenheim through the Palatinate wine landscapes to Schweigen-Rechtenbach. But it is not only the blossom that makes the region appear pink. While the almond blossom creates a colour spectacle, especially during the day, at night it is the pink glow that makes the castles, palaces, churches and many other historic buildings along the German Wine Route sparkle.
