Introduction
If you're not looking for Germany's bigger cities, this is the right place to go! Most of this state is covered by hill sites with only small (at least for Germany!) villages. In between the hills lie the valleys of the rivers Rhein and Mosel, famous for castles and wine. The southeast has more cities, many of them important for german history (Mainz, Worms, Speyer).

Top Things to See and Do
The Rhine (Rhein) valley - UNESCO world cultural heritage with plenty wineyards and medieval castles, don't miss the "Pfalz bei Kaub" (Castle right in the middle of the stream) or the "Loreley" (famous cliff with its own tale).
Mainz - capital city of the state, where Johannes Gutenberg invented the printing press in the 15th century.
Trier - roman history anywhere you look; most famous: the gate "Porta nigra", the baths and the amphitheatre.
Eifel - these hill site in the northwest has many volcanos. The last eruptions are some 10000 years ago and still the earth is shaking sometimes.

rheinland-pfalz A sanctuary for your senses Pure savoir vivre in Germany’s largest winegrowing region Almond trees, lemons, oranges, kiwis, figs, sweet chestnuts, aubergines, oleanders – and vineyards as far as the eye can see. But this is not Tuscany – far from it, even though the cliché is often applied to the area. The place we are talking about is one of the northernmost wine-growing areas in the world. This is the Palatinate. As early as 2,000 years ago, the Romans took advantage of the amazing climate to grow wine. Today, every fourth bottle of German wine is grown in the area and it definitely isn’t a bad idea to visit one village after the next to sample the wine; after all, it no coincidence that the German wine route between the hills on the edge of the Palatinate Forest and the Rhine Plane is the oldest and best-known German tourist route. Benjamin Franklin once said that tradition was not about “guarding ashes” but about “rekindling the embers” and around here this has been successfully demonstrated. Though distinguished by modern infrastructure and innovation, tourism here has remained peaceful and genuine wherever possible. The people here do not rest on their laurels. Young winegrowers, for example, handle the heritage they received from their ancestors with great care, despite trying out new approaches and lending a contemporary image to their wines. Professional circles agree that never before have so many good wines been produced in Germany as today. Internationally, they are export hits – thanks to the Riesling boom in the U.S. and, most importantly, thanks to the UK. To mention just one of the many excellent wine estates, we warmly recommend Weingut Anselmann in Edesheim, the wines of which were even selected for the celebrations surrounding this year’s Football World Cup Finals. The inhabitants of the Palatinate are open-minded cosmopolitans, earthy at times but with a heart of gold, and, above all, hospitable and full of the joys of life. They will always find reasons to celebrate a party where you’ll be served a “schoppen” (half a litre) of wine along with a hearty meal, such as pig’s stomach (former Chancellor Kohl’s favourite dish). But winegrowers, chefs and confectioners will also be delighted to invite you on an expedition beyond traditional local cuisine. Whether you’re trying out degustation menus or simple hiker’s snacks: aesthetic, creative and healthy culinary delights outshine any fast-food trends or globalized, uniform tastes. Convince yourself of it at Hotel Alte Rebschule in Rhodt, for example. A breath of fresh air: free from dusty clichés, German ‘gemütlichkeit’ and French ‘savoir vivre’ can once again be experienced to the full. A sense of well being will arise all by itself. Naturally, the Palatines are certain that their country once must have been paradise itself. For some it has remained that way. They even believe the world axis runs straight through the Palatinate Forest and that they are personally responsible for its lubrication. No wonder: many different peoples and the major dynasties of the Middle Ages left their traces here; the Thirty Years War raged here, immigrants came from Allgau, Switzerland and Tyrol. The Huguenots settled here, and Hambach Castle is said to be the cradle of German democracy. The country between the River Rhine and the River Saar offers a concentrated mix of living history and culture in all categories. It is easy to go into raptures over the diversity of landscape, the wide variety of leisure activities, recreation opportunities, Mediterranean flair, the French influence and the magic of dreamy hamlets. Adventurous visitors are certain to get their money’s worth. Whether by car, bicycle or on foot, you will discover quaint wine estates, romantic castles and palaces, inviting inner courtyards and half-timbered houses in historic cobblestone streets. Lovers of golf, horseriding and canoeing will find perfect conditions. The range of gastronomic and hotel facilities catering for all tastes include family-friendly accommodation on wine-growing estates, luxurious hotels, excellent high-class restaurants, pubs with regional fare and genuine wine taverns. Here you will find an abundance of those things which we inhabitants of the third millennium all too often lack: a blessed climate, a picture-postcard landscape, good food and good wine – but most importantly pleasure and pure joy in living, far away from the hustle and bustle of our modern lives. by summerweb
