7 good choices for a weekend in Rhineland-Palatinate

Often it is the small things, the fleeting moments, that make a journey unforgettable: Taking a deep breath at a vantage point, when your gaze is lost in the distance and everything feels free and wide. A soft crackling in the woods when you realise that you can be very close to the wild inhabitants of the forest. Or the refreshing feeling when, at a rest stop, a cool drink in your hand gives you goosebumps on your arms that are still warm from hiking.

Are you in the mood for an active exploration tour that gives you precious moments like these? In Rhineland-Palatinate, countless such experiences await you, where you can forget about time and immerse yourself with all your senses. As inspiration for your next weekend, when you want to leave everyday life behind you, we have put together seven exciting tours that hold many a unique moment in store for you.

Which one do you want to be your favourite? Set off and find out!
