The trail is particularly worthwhile in spring, when the awakening nature transforms the landscape into a single sea of blossoms.Attention: The path is not paved throughout. The signposting of the flower trail is done by Coreten stelae. These are not always immediately recognisable due to the patina that has built up over the years.

Author’s recommendation

After the hike, you can stop off at one of the many restaurants in the town of Freinsheim. You can also take a city tour through the historic old town and along the city wall using our interactive tour with video and audio information via smartphone. Public guided tours of the town take place every Friday at 6 p.m. and every Saturday at 11.15 a.m. from April to October.

Safety information

Our hiking and cycling trails often run along so-called farm tracks. These are used for agricultural purposes and are used by tractors and harvesters all year round.We would like to point out that the use of these paths is at your own risk and ask cyclists, hikers and winegrowers for mutual consideration in the interest of all. The farm roads may be soiled by agricultural traffic.

After rainy days and especially in winter, the paths can be wet and slippery.

Turn-by-turn directions

The starting point is the Freinsheim tourist information office in the historic town hall. From there, walk across the market square towards Eisentor and continue straight ahead to Großkarlbacher Straße. Turn right into Gewerbestraße and follow this until the turn-off to the left into Riedweg. After the horse farm at the end of Riedweg, continue to the right, you will pass various paddocks and continue to the gated level crossing.  After crossing the railway tracks, turn left after about 100 m to continue along the Blütenwanderweg/Sandhasenweg 3 (rusted metal pillars with a sawn-out flower motif and a sticker with a hare motif as trail markers), into the Ludwigshain recreation area. After the small slope, keep left and, before the lake, turn left through the railway subway and then immediately right again.  After another 200 metres, turn left, then right again after about the same distance and you will come to the Kraut- und Rübenrradweg on the left.  After about 100 metres, turn right again and go straight on for another 200 metres and then turn left into Talweidengraben (no name sign). Keep straight on until you reach the asphalt cycle path. There you turn left back past the Nettomarkt. Cross Großkarlbacher Straße, walk along Weisenheimer Straße through the iron gate to the starting point, the tourist information office in the historic town hall.
