An eventful round tour through the vineyards. From Freinsheim you walk to Erpolzheim and via St. Michael's Chapel to Bad Dürkheim's sausage market square with its giant barrel and saltworks. You walk back via the Roman excavation site "Villa am Weilberg" and Kallstadt.
During and after the hike, you can enjoy the varied gastronomy in Kallstadt and the refreshment options in the town of Freinsheim. In Freinsheim, you can also join 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 informationThe route often runs 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 the paths is at your own risk and ask for mutual consideration in the interest of all. The farm tracks may be soiled by agricultural traffic. After rainy days and especially in winter, the paths can be wet and slippery.
