The EXPO circular route was created in 2000 as part of the participation of the Maikammer, St. Martin and Kirrweiler wine towns as an external project of the EXPO 2000 in Hanover. The path leads through the three wine villages and the surrounding wine landscape over a total length of around 26 km. Numerous information boards explain viticultural and landscape features. They report on flood protection measures in the form of idyllic biotopes and draw attention to events along the way that are worth taking a closer look at.
Distance 6.8 km
The EXPO circular route is located at an altitude between 130 and max. 320 m above sea level. In the Kirrweiler area, the path is almost flat. In the Maikammer section, flat and gently sloping sections alternate. In the St. Martin area, the location on the eastern slope of the Haardtrand has some more demanding slopes, e.g. Ascent to the sports field and "Haus am Weinberg" from approx. 240 to approx. 320 m above sea level.
The circuit leads partly on paved paths, partly a formerly historical paving was restored, e.g. on the way from Maikammer to St. Martin in the Berggasse area, and it is marked with arrow signs and the words “EXPO-Rundweg”.
Plan a picnic for a stopover at one of the numerous picnic areas.
