Pfälzer Weinsteig Stage 4: Deidesheim - Neustadt an der Weinstraße


High hills, heavenly views and idyllic wine villages: monotony makes a holiday somewhere else. The tour starts at the historic town hall on the market square and leads past the swimming pool and vineyards to the Waldgasthof Pfalzblick where you capture the silence of the forest. Next on to the Klausenkapelle and to the wine village of Königsbach with its parish church of St. John. After climbing up to the Meerspinnblick the trail follows the valley to the Gimmeldinger Forsthaus Benjental where a climb up to the 554 m high Weinbiet begins. Once at the top you can refresh yourself  at the Weinbiethaus. A final climb takes you to the lookout tower where the view sweeps over a contrasting landscape. Along the ridge of the Wolfsberg, the trail leads you past the  monument of the Bergstein and to the  ruins of the Wolfsburg. Behind theScheffelwart the trail then goes downhill  past the Deidesheimer Tempel and the Dr. Welsch-Terrasse and down  the Haardter Treppenweg into the charming old town of Neustadt an der Weinstraße.
