Hiking trail without any notable climbs southwest of Freinsheim through the Schwarzes Kreuz and Oschelskopf vineyards.
An image column made of bird sandstone with the crucifixion scene, probably from the 16th century, gave the Schwarzes Kreuz vineyard its name.The Culinary Hike takes place here at the end of September. At about 20 stops along the way, wines, sparkling wines and juices from the Freinsheim vintners can be tasted. And since good wine and good food belong together in the Palatinate, each stage promises its own culinary treat.
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.
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.
