The treasure trove of Rhineland‑Palatinate is brimming with glittering treasures, many of which can easily be reached by bus or train. It is great to be able to explore the lovely natural and cultural highlights away from the traffic jams on the motorways, and it is even remarkably cheap from anywhere in Germany thanks to Deutsche Bahn’s €9 ticket offer until the end of August.
What could be better than simply climbing aboard a train and delving into the past in deeply historical cities like Koblenz, Mainz and Trier or soaking up the charm of the pretty streets and squares of picture-perfect towns like Cochem, Bernkastel and Speyer? Fans of the Middle Ages can enjoy a guided tour of our lofty castles and magnificent churches, while those seeking a little relaxation can use the excellent public transport in Rhineland‑Palatinate for a visit to a spa.
At the end of an eventful day, you can relax and enjoy a glass of wine or two from one of our outstanding winemakers, safe in the knowledge that you do not have to drive home.
