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.

Answered by Tourist-Information Freinsheim · September 08, 2022 · Zum Wohl. Die Pfalz.
Sehr geehrte Frau Göhl, es tut uns sehr leid, dass Ihnen der Weinpilgerweg nicht gefallen hat. Es ist kein offiziell, ausgewiesener Wanderweg. Wird auch als solcher nirgenwo bezeichnet. Er wurde von uns als eine Erlebniswanderung mit verschiedenen Probestationen für unsere Gäste erstellt. Die Route ist auf dem Pilgerpass, welcher von unserer Homepage heruntergeladen werden kann abgebildet und beschrieben. Die Einkehrstationen sind darüber unterrichtet. Das Angebot wurde mit den teilnehmenden Betrieben vorher abgesprochen. Wir hoffen, dass Sie trotzdem eine schöne Zeit in unserer Urlaubsregion hatten. Mit freundlichem Gruß M. Henninger
