Welcome to Romantic Germany - Rhineland‑Palatinate!
Due to the flood disaster, the region of Ahrtal is currently affected by severe flooding and its consequences. As a result, many places have been flooded and are not accessible. Hiking and cycling trails are in many cases impassable. Please avoid the respective areas. All other regions and cities are accessible without restrictions and are not affected by the flood. We look forward to your visit and holiday there!

Unser Ursprung. Dein Reiseziel. Schatzkammer Rheinland-Pfalz
Was macht Rheinland-Pfalz so besonders? Es sind jene ursprünglichen Landschaftsbilder mit malerischen Wäldern, steilen Weinbergen und sonnengebadeten Flusstälern, die über Jahrtausende durch Naturgewalten geformt wurden. Es sind auch die fesselnde Kulturgeschichte und die bemerkenswerten Persönlichkeiten, die hier wirkten. Sei es bei einer ausgedehnten Wanderung entlang wilder Seeufer oder einem Streifzug durch die historische Mainzer Innenstadt, überall findest du inspirierende Spuren.
