Make a self catering cottage or holiday rental in Rheineland-Pfalz, Germany your home away from home

The lovely region of Rheineland-Pfalz is located on the western border of Germany, adjoining Luxembourg. It is a popular area with Americans who enjoy the many festivals held here. The area is rich in castles, with one at almost every town; picturesque towns with mural-painted houses and Roman ruins. This area is Germany's leading producer of wine and the wine routes in the south west are lovely. They are particularly busy in late summer, when the wine festivals are celebrated. The largest festival is the Durkheimer Wurstfest, or sausage festival, but the wine far outweighs the amount of sausages consumed!

Things to Do in Rheineland-Pfalz Visit the Wineries

The Mosel Valley is one of the prettiest valleys in the world and runs from Trier in the southwest of the region, to the famous Deutsches Eck in Koblenz. The winding river valley which stretches for about 50 miles (80km) is lined with beautiful vineyards. The better known German Wine Road also runs through the area further south, towards the French border. In the early autumn there is a continuous circuit of wine festivals in these areas offering wine tasting, parades and cultural events.

Enjoy the Cuisine

This region's specialities are sausages served with heaps of potatoes and sauerkraut. The Pflaz region serves Saumagen, a bologna made with pork and potatoes which is sliced and grilled. In this region beer takes a backseat to wine, especially as most of Germany's white wine is produced in this region.

Places to Visit in Rheineland-Pfalz

The capital ofRheineland-Pfalz is the city of Mainz at the southern end of the Rheinland, Germany's premier wine region. It is home to some of Germany's most scenic castles and, although a modern city, it has some great museums.

Speyer Cathedral is beautiful both inside and outside and has a massive crypt. The freshly painted town buildings which line Maximilianstrasse always make a colourful sight, along with the traditional maypole and the Altportal. The town also has some lovely churches such as the tiny Heiliggeistkirche or Holy Ghost Church. On a more modern note, Speyer has a Technik Museum with military aircraft and hardware on display.

Further north is Koblenz where the Rhein and the Mosel River meet. The Ehrenbreitstein Castle is one of the largest in this area with a maze of battlements and there is also the more modest 13th century Koblenz Castle. Take a ferry across the river and enjoy the historic architecture in this lovely city. The nearby towns of Weindorf and Bingen am Rhein are also worth exploring. In the far southwest is the modern metropolis of Kaisersalutern which has some historical treasures.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

The river is a short way away but a steep walk back up to the apartment. There is plenty to do in the area from walking in the beautiful vineyards, visiting Koblenz and using the cable car from German Corner across the river to a castle. Bikes can be rented from the Hotel Zur Lorerly, which is great fun to cycle along the Rhine, but you need to pick them up at 10 am sharp. Boppard has a chair lift which is also worth visiting to see the 4 lakes, (the Rhine looks like 4/5 lakes from the top of this hill). The apartment was in a very good location and we had most meals on the small balcony outside the sitting room, we did feel that the kitchen would benefit from a microwave, otherwise the property had everything to make our stay very pleasant.
