What really counts when you’re on holiday? It is the moving, simply delectable moments when time seems to stand still that make your trip unforgettable: when the sun slowly sets and the last light over the treetops shimmers prettily in the waters of the river; when the first drops of a new wine tickle your taste buds and you realise it will quickly become one of your favourites; and when you turn the pedals for the last time and swing out of the saddle at the highest viewpoint, exhausted but happy.
However you design your holiday and whether you are just here for a short break or spending a few days exploring the 10 multifaceted regions of our Federal State, your time here will make lasting memories that will always bring a smile to your face. Which moments do you want to add to your favourites?
The Eifel, the Hunsrück, the Westerwald and the Pfälzerwald form the most beautiful low mountain range landscapes for your outdoor holiday. Surrounded by the idyllic river landscapes of the Moselle, Rhine, Nahe, Ahr and Lahn, you can perfectly combine hiking or cycling tours with a visit to a city. Six of Germany's 13 wine-growing regions are located in Rhineland-Palatinate: You can taste the most delicious wines from the winegrowers of the Ahr, Moselle, Nahe, Romantic Rhine, Palatinate and Rhinehesse. Rhineland-Palatinate is not only the most wine-rich state, but also the most forested in Germany. In eight nature parks and two national parks you can experience flora and fauna up close, especially the wild cats in the Hunsrück-Hochwald National Park are an exciting highlight.
