The trail leads through the famous Herxheim vineyard "Himmelreich". On an almost level route, you can enjoy wonderful views and discover some dreamy corners in the village itself.
After the tour, the Herxheim gastronomy is open to you for a stop
The path 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 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.
