The hospitality of the people of Rhineland‑Palatinate is best enjoyed at the lively wine festivals or numerous welcoming pubs and restaurants serving up delicious typical regional food and outstanding wines.

Discover the treasure trove Rhineland‑Palatinate on the trails of crowned heads

Castles, fortresses, cathedrals and monasteries are all relics of the cultures that ruled over thousands of years and not just in our historical little towns. They are proud watchmen towering above the valleys carved deep into the Rhenish Massif by the Rhine, Moselle, Ahr, Lahn and Nahe rivers and their tributaries. They stand steadfastly in the mystic forests of the Eifel, Hunsrück and Palatinate, or gaze proudly over the vastness of the Eifel, Rhine-Hesse and the Westerwald.
