Experience and discover a region in the heart of Europe
The border to France or the Moselle river valley can be reached quickly. Discover the natural beauty of a region which has many names: Western Palatinate, Northern Vosges, Lorraine, Alsace, Saar Palatinate. Walk and cycle throughout the soft, green hills and ridges of the Bliesgau, or voyage into the depths of the Palatinate Forest. Go climbing for a burst of adrenaline or just enjoy the sunset.
Excursions to the Palatinate
The Dahner Felsenland with its castles and palaces is a paradise for hikers. Fischbach is home to Germany’s first treetop trail complete with biosphere house and barefoot path. Museums for hands-on experiences and to put on your feet: the Dynamikum Science Centre in Pirmasens and the Shoe Museum in Hauenstein will both inspire you.
Discover nearby France: Go on excursion to the citadel in Bitche, an important fortress of Sébastien le Prestre de Vauban, built for Louis XIV. Visit the Ligne Maginot or Strasbourg with its famous cathedrals: and, and, and…
The Saarland is full of cities rich with history and worth a visit. For example, the World Cultural Heritage Site Völklinger Hütte, the castle hill caves in Homburg or the baroque-style historical centre of Blieskastel and other places along the Baroque Road of the Saar Palatine.
